Xiaomi’s next smartphone looks like it has been outed by TENAA, the China certification authority. Speculated to be the Redmi Note 5, it looks quite different than the previously leaked photos.
The listing at TENAA shows a very familiar looking Redmi design on the back, with only a single camera sensor. There looks to be two different models under the same design – MEE7 and MET7. The differences seems to be on features rather than looks.
An octa-core processor will be at the heart of the two phones, running at 2GHz. When paired with the 5.99 inch LCD screen 2160 × 1080 pixels, this information points to the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 as the CPU on the new Redmi.
One model will have a 3GB RAM and 32GB storage combination, while the other is a 4GB/64GB combo. The listing also shows that the Redmi Note 5’s infrared sensor will be present, as well as a large 4000mAh battery built in.
Imaging will be done via a rear 12-megapixel camera sensor, and selfies through a 5-megapixel front shooter. We can also expect dual-SIM support, as well as microSD support up to 128GB. A wide selection of colours will also be available: Black, Gold, Rose Gold, While, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray and Silver are up for grabs.
We can expect Redmi Note 5 to be launched sometime by end of the year, or early next year. If Xiaomi can keep the phone in the affordable Redmi price range, it could be another hit for the Chinese brand.
