The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 probably has had more leaks and rumors published than any other phone in recent smartphone history. But this time, the sites claim they have the complete specifications through authentic leaks and though Xiaomi is yet to issue any formal confirmation of these details about the device, these are being shared for the benefit of the readers.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will sport a 5.99-inch full HD display with the bezel-free feature. The screen resolution will read 1080x 2160 pixels and the pixel density, a high 403ppi. With the full screen display, the aspect ratio maintained is 18:9.
The new phone will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625SoC that can clock a decent speed of 2.0GHz. Itâ€™s an octa-core processor and will have the Adreno 506 for GPU support. Obviously, Xiaomi is aiming high with its next flagship. The RAM will be 4GB and the phoneâ€™s internal memory will be 64GB. There are a few who claim it could be 3GB and 32GB. Since these are details culled out of leaks one should not be surprised if Xiaomi were to launch both variants.
The slot for a microSD card to expand the storage to 256GB has also been spotted. As for the OS, the leaks so far indicate that it will be the Android Nougat version 7.1.2. However, since Xiaomi has already indicated that the Android Oreo will be made available to the lower end models also in its stable, there is every reason to believe the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will also be run on this latest OS only ultimately.
On the optics front, the main rear camera will have a 12MP sensor and the front one for selfies, 5MP in size. It is also being speculated that the battery will be a powerful one at 4000mAh. One should expect the communications suite and the provision of various sensors, including a fingerprint sensor will be par for the course and the new Note 5 must be fitted with all these.
Since these are all at the speculation stage only no confirmation can be given on the exact date of release of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 nor its price, though some are hoping that Xiaomi will keep it below the Rs 15,000 level or thereabouts.
