Just a day is now left for the official announcement of the much awaited Redmi Note 5 smartphone, and we have got all the details of the phone today, including the specifications and the design. In this article, we will be listing out all the specifications of the phone along with the design details since everything is out now. It is worth mentioning that if you were looking for a great budget phone from Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 5 probably not for you since it is just a renamed Redmi 5 Plus. You must go for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, the specs and design details of it are explained in next post.
REDMI NOTE 5 – DESIGN AND SPECIFICATIONS
So, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is arriving with a 5.99-inch display which has an 18:9 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2160x1080p, i.e., FHD+. Under the hood, the phone has an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, and yes, this is a processor that was announced back in the Q4 2016. That’s the reason why we suggested you go for the Redmi Note 5 Pro instead in case you want to buy a Xiaomi phone. Anyways, there are two storage options – 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. It is worth mentioning that the Snapdragon 625 is not a bad chipset at all. In fact, this is a great power efficient processor, and the Redmi Note 5 comes with a 4,000mAh battery so no matter how much you use your phone, it will be lasting a day for sure.
On the rear, there is a single 12MP camera with f/2.2 aperture. On the front, the phone features a 5MP camera. Lastly, Android Nougat runs out of the box with MIUI 9, and that’s also a major con since Android Oreo was released last year while Android P is set to announce in May.
If Xiaomi prices it around 10-12K, this could be a great hit. However, there are already phones like Honor 9 Lite in this price range, and the Redmi Note 4 is also available at the same price. So, let’s see what the price that Xiaomi has planned to put for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is.
