Xiaomi Redmi 5 specs and press renders leaked ahead of December announcement

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5

There are also another set of teasers (shown below) that have confirmed the phones' 18:9 display.

The Redmi 5 could be one of Xiaomi's new smartphones that will be revealed in the first half of December.

Launched earlier this month, Xiaomi is yet again conducting a sale for the Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite today.

Word of the new phone started with a listing on TENAA (an agency which is China's telecommunication authority), which indicated two models - code-named MEE7 and MET7.

This one is expected to come with a dual camera setup at the back, featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor.

Going by the render, from the back, the upcoming Redmi 5 looks pretty much similar to its predecessor - Redmi 4. The webpage does not reveal the specifications of the smartphone. It's also worth mentioning Xiaomi's Redmi 5 will boast a large 5.7-inch display, but resolution remains HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels). Nevertheless, previously leaked information suggested that the Redmi 5 will carry 5.7-inch HD+ display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, 3GB RAM, 16/32GB internal storage, 12MP rear camera, and 5MP front camera. The phone first came with Android Marshmallow, but can now be upgraded to Nougat. The phone will most likely have 4GB or even 3GB RAM and will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC. There is a microSD slot that can accommodate a chip of up to 128 GB storage to expand the device storage. The smartphone will also come with MIUI 9 which will be based on Android 7.1.2. The Redmi 5 won't embrace Type C technology and will come with a microUSB port instead. For photography, the device is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with PDAF support, and a 5-megapixel snapper for selfies.

Xiaomi "Desh ka Smartphone" could be the company's cheapest smartphone in India till date. The smartphone, a Flipkart-exclusive, is touted to be a battery-centric budget offering with smart multitasking capabilities.
