Privately owned Chinese electronics and software mega company, Xiaomi, recently had their new Redmi Note 5 photos leaked. It seems as if China’s TENAA certification has leaked the photos. It is no surprised that people are clamoring to see the photos since the Redmi Note 4 was such a huge success.
It seems that whenever companies put the letter “A” in their device name, there is a good chance that we are dealing with either a low-end device or an affordable one. For example, the Xiaomi Redmi 4A is the cheapest phone from the company, pricing at 499 yuan, or about $75 US. The same is also be true for the Xiaomi mi TV 4A which is also relatively cheap. The Xiaomi Mi TV 4 is the larger variant of the A4.
When Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5A, there was much noise about it, mainly because many had been waiting for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. However, the manufacturers decided that they would release the Redmi Note 5, after the Redmi Note 5A.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, at its lowest price costs 699 yuan, or $75 US. The highest option comes in at a still rather cheap 1199 yuan, or $180 US. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 should be priced the same amount.
Just because the phone is for the smart and savvy shopper, does not mean that it will be without features. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A comes with a beautiful 16 MP front camera, with a long list of enhancements that allow the user to take better selfies. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 also has a 16+5 MP camera. The phone has a full-screen 18:9 display, unibody metal design, camera bump, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the back, something you tend to see on higher end cell phones. The fingerprint sensor allows the phone screen to be even larger since there is not a home button.
The leaked photos don’t show rear cameras as has been rumored, but there could be a Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro or Plus version. There are narrow areas left for the speaker, front camera, as well as a flashlight. The phone is rumored to come with a 5.5-inch FHD+ 18:9 2.5D curved glass display, it is powered by Snapdragon 630.
The Remdi Note 5 comes in a beautiful Champagne gold and black based on the images, but there could also be a rose gold or even platinum silver colors.
Under the Hood
Even with all the nice features, the hardware is not as great as better models available. It will have either 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM. It does have a 4000 mAh battery. The Xaiomi Redmi Note 5 Pro or Plus could come with a 12 MP rear camera, with a 5 MP secondary camera. There is the possibility that the model will come with a Snapdragon 660 chip, but it appears on the Xiaomi Mi Note 3. It is also rumored that the Redmi Note 5 will come with a Media Tek P25 or P30 SoCs. It could also have dual SIM with 4G VoLTE support as well.
It come priced, as mentioned earlier, like this:
- 3 + 32 GB at 999 yuan ($150 US)
- 4 + 32 GB at 1299 yuan ($196 US)
- 4 + 64 GB at 1599 yuan ($241 US)
