Even if Xiaomi has officially confirmed and has set the date for the launch of Redmi 5 on 7th December, the specs and features have been subjected to various rumors and leaks and the images going viral online, each time hinting about the probable look of the phone.
Now, this recent leak has been confirmed by a Chinese Telecom regulator and is quite similar to all the previous leaks, depicting an 18:9 touchscreen for the Redmi 5. The render of the alleged Redmi 5 also shows the device in gold color, a single camera setup at the back, and below the rear camera sits the fingerprint print.
Apart from the above-mentioned specs, there are also quite a few other features of this yet to release new launch by Xiaomi. The Redmi 5 will sport a 5.7-inch display with “HD+” resolution, which might even refer to a 1,440×720, but that’s not certain yet. Also, it’s powered by the Snapdragon 625 chipset, aided by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
Talking on camera, it boasts of a 12 MP snapper on the back, with a 5 MP shooter for selfies. Further, it appears that the phone might also use a micro USB port, so it looks like Xiaomi’s budget line isn’t yet ready to jump to USB-C right now. Also, the Redmi 5 is kept running a 3,300 mAh battery.
The leak suggests that the Redmi 5 will come with a much better processor i.e. Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset as expected. Redmi 5 is also tipped to come in only one variant, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There are no words on if the storage can be expanded with a microSD card or not. On the software front, the Redmi 5, for now, is tipped to come with Android 7.1 Nougat. But chances are also likely for the phone to run on the latest software i.e. Oreo.
Lastly, the leak also hints at an RMB 1,399 i.e. ₹13,600 price tag, approximately which is contradictory to previous rumors about an RMB 799 i.e. approximately ₹7,900 price tag.
