Xiaomi will be announcing the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India tomorrow, but full specs of the phones have already leaked. The Redmi Note 5 is just a rebranded Redmi 5 Plus with a 6” screen and a Snapdragon 625 chipset.
The Redmi Note 5 Pro is amazing and will be powered by a Snapdragon 636, dual-cam on the back, arranged in the upper left corner like the iPhone X, and a 20 MP Selfie snapper on the front.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with a 5.99 inches display and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It is powered by a octa-core CPU, clocked at up to 1.8 GHz, and an Adreno 509 GPU.
The dual-cam setup on the back is 12 MP + 5 MP. The first sensor is already well-known from the Redmi 5 series with its f/2.2 lens and 1.25 μm pixel size. The second one will deliver “focused foreground and creamy blurred backgrounds” with the f/2.0 lens and 1.12 μm pixel size. Xiaomi provided the 20 MP front camera with a Sony IMX376 sensor a coupled it with an LED light.
The fingerprint scanner is positioned on the back, while the power button and volume rocker sit on the right side. There is a 4,000 mAh battery, but sadly it will be charged through the aging micro USB on the bottom.
The Redmi Note 5 Pro arrives with MIUI 9, based on Android Nougat and will be available in Blue, Rose Gold, Champagne Gold and Black colours. There will be three memory and price combinations – 3 GB + 32 GB, 4 GB + 64 GB and 6 GB + 64 GB.
The price of these devices are yet to be known but all we need is just less than 24 hours for the Indian event to take place.
