It seems that the Redmi 5 model is almost ready for its official unveiling guys and this recent streak of leaks basically confirms our thoughts, as Xiaomi is preparing to enter the full-screen display trend and make it available to the mid-range market segment using this most awaited model.
According to recent rumors, the Chinese company plans to launch 3 models with full-screen design, mainly Xiaomi Redmi 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, the first two of them with an affordable price tag of approximately around or under 1000 yuan ($150) and around 1599 Yuan for the latter. Earlier today another photo of the purported Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 leaked on Weibo (shot on a Mi 6!) and it’s one of the white variant of the model.
This one is expected to pack a Snapdragon 636 chip paired with a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and a dual-camera on the back. The starting price tag should be set at 1599 yuan ($241).
On the other hand, the most awaited Xiaomi Redmi 5 will probably come with a smaller 5,5 inch display, 18:9 aspect ratio, with a resolution of 720p, while the other two models (Redmi 5 Plus/Redmi Note 5) will be packed with 5.99-inch screens providing 2160 × 1080 pixel resolution. The Redmi 5 Plus will come with 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM storage (the Redmi 5 will feature 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM), and Mediatek P25 chipsets according to rumors.
What do you think of the bezels on this white variant of the purported Redmi 5 you see in the image above guys? Perhaps the black version will hide the bezels better?
