As you can clearly make out from the image above, the Redmi 5 Plus will be the bigger sibling of the two accommodating a 5.99-inch panel with 18:9 aspect ratio. It will also come with a Snapdragon 625 SoC. Another piece of info corroborating with previous leaks is the 12 MP camera on the rear. Both the Redmi 5/5 Plus will come with the same single shooter at the back.
On the other hand, the Redmi 5 will have a slightly smaller 5.7-inch display with the above-mentioned aspect ratio. It will harbour a relatively modest Snapdragon 450 chip under its hood.
We expect the bigger Redmi 5 Plus to come with a bigger 4,000 mAh juice pack and the smaller to come with a 3,200 mAh power pack.
In related news, pricing of both the handsets was leaked on AliExpress. The pricing, while realistic, is unofficial. Readers should beware that actual pricing may differ a bit from the leak.
