Could this mystery phone be Xiaomi’s Redmi 5?

And while we expect Xiaomi to succeed in its sales goals and further expand its offline stores in China (and the rest of the world), a mysterious device pops-up and presumably shows the most awaited Xiaomi Redmi 5 model!

Gizchina News of the week

Rumors have already suggested that the device would be equipped with dual cameras on its back, but the device was also spotted a couple of days ago, in the hands of Xiaomi officials while snapping photos during the event to celebrate the 10 million shipments during September. This also suggests that the alleged Redmi Note 5 may come with an impressive wide-angle selfie camera. 

If we are to believe current rumors, the upcoming Redmi 5 model should be equipped with a 5.5-inch FHD display, along with a Snapdragon 630 and/or MediaTek Helio P25 chipset variants. It is expected to be available in 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM storage options, with USB Type-C port and a 4000 mAh battery.

    Given what a mess the Redmi 4 was given the bugs and lack of updates I would stay away, only go with the popular Xiaomi devices.

      Even the popular xiaomi device like mi5 doesn’t really get it’s bug fixed and updated. Xiaomi gives you decent spec for the price you paid compared to competition, but that’s it. Never expect to get support, bug fix, and continous security update.

      well… I have a Hongmi Gao, which may be called “Prime” in India, but I am not sure about this. I had it for a bit less than a year. I never had bug, never had any issue with it. I wish all the phone I had before or will have in the future could be as good as this one. Only the camera quality could be better to make of it a perfect phone.
