Recent reports confirm that Xaomi is currently testing the Redmi Note 5 which was previously rumored to be none existent. Although Xiaomi fans have waited so long for this smartphone, they will have to wait a bit longer as the device is scheduled to touchdown in the second quarter of 2018. Reports claim that this smartphone will use the yet-to-be-released Snapdragon 632 processor and this seems to create some sort of anticipation with regards to the performance of this smartphone since it will be the first device to sport the processor.
In addition to the processor which will clock 1.8GHz, this Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be equipped with a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. This smartphone will come with 4GB of RAM while the internal memory spec is still under wraps, however, anything less than an expandable 64GB storage will be disappointing. In the camera department, we are expecting a dual camera setup like we have seen on most recent devices. Two 12MP sensors will make up the rear camera while the selfie shooter is rumored to be a 5MP snapper. Details of the battery cannot be ascertained for now.
Speculations have it that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will sell for about 1,599 Yuan (approx. $245). This pricing, in all honesty, seems high and anything more than $200 may discourage some potential buyers.
