The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A’s lowest version is priced at 699 yuan ($75), while the highest variant comes at 1199 yuan ($180). The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 should be priced identically. Thus we are dealing with a 1000 yuan ($150). But who said a wallet-friendly smartphone should come with a regular look and features? It can get some trendy features as well. As you remember the same happened with the Redmi Note 5A. As you remember it sports a 16MP front shooter with a list of enhances features for better selfies. As for the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, it will use a full-screen design.
As you can see in the photos, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 comes with a metal housing and uses a three-stage antenna design. But there are many improvements in comparison to the previous modes, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. First, it sports a dual-camera using a 16+5MP configuration. Second, there is a fingerprint scanner, which means the company can make the screen even larger not leaving a place for a home button or Android’s traditional keys. Finally, we see a screen occupying the most of the front panel. There are too narrow areas left for the speaker, front camera, and a flashlight. What’s interesting, the bottom side uses symmetrical design.
Well, even if the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will look so amazing, it doesn’t mean there will be many trendy hardware under the hood. We have been thinking this model will come with a Snapdragon 660 chip. But the latter appears on such a beast as the Xiaomi Mi Note 3. So it’s quite impossible to see the same on a device at a lower category. It’s rumored the Redmi Note 5 will come with a MediaTek P25 or P30 SoCs. Finally, the phone should sport a built-in battery of a 4000mAh capacity. As I said at the beginning of the article, the handset should be priced identically to its sibling. Earlier we have heard the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will come in different variants – 3+32GB at 999 yuan ($150), 4+32GB at 1299 yuan ($196), and 4+64GB at 1599 yuan ($241).
