Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Rumored – Specs, Photos, Price and Launch Date

Xiaomi has become one of the toppest companies in the smartphone market. The company launched the Redmi Note 4 last year, which became India’s best-selling smartphone because of its powerful specs at  lowest price. We’re now looking forward to the launch of its successor, the Redmi Note 5. As always, we’ve been getting a large number of leaks for the device on the Internet over the past weeks. So, here’s everything you should know about the Redmi Note 5.

Leaked Images

 

In the beginning, the leaks showed the Redmi Note 5 to be as below. These were uploaded to TENNA, the Chinese certification authority’s, website. The Redmi Note 5 will bring an almost bezel-less display, unlike the Redmi Note 4. The back seems very much as the Redmi Note 4.

Although the certification leaks show that Redmi Note 5 will look as above but we’ve got our hands on real-life samples of the device and they tell a completely different story . The device sports a dual-rear camera system with 16MP and 5MP sensors, as we can see in the images below.

There is no guarantee that whether the above leak is true or not but we can expect the Redmi Note 5 to bring dual cameras and an 18:9 display to the budget segment, where the device will compete with the recently launched Honor 7X. Lets see what the final design comes out to be.

Redmi Note 5 Launch Date and Price :

 

Since the company is primarily focused on bringing flagship specs to the budget segment phones with its Redmi lineup, the Redmi Note 5 will also be priced at a low price. According to sources, the Redmi Note 5 will be available at a starting point of nearly 1,599 yuan (~Rs. 15,000) for the 3GB & 32GB variant.

The Redmi Note 5 has also bagged a listing on JD.com but it is wrapped in red cloth and the price of the device has been quoted as 8,888 yuan. This price is only symbolic and means the launch of the device is definitely imminent and could happen in the coming weeks. There’s no confirm information of the launch date, as of now but the Redmi Note 4 was launched in January 2017, so mostly we can expect the Redmi Note 5 to launch in December 2017 – January 2018.
