The image also shows the about screen of the phone giving us a look at the hardware and software specifications. Accordingly, the Redmi Note 5 will feature a 5.99 inch full screen display with a resolution of 216p x 1080 pixels which we speculate have an aspect ratio of 18:9, keeping up with the trend. Under the hood might lie the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset coupled with an unreported amount of RAM but 64GB of ROM. It will run Android Nougat 7.1.2 with MIUI 9 on top.

Right now, we can’t confirm whether this device is actually the Redmi Note 5, so take this report with a pinch of salt.
