Xiaomi is likely to launch Redmi Note 5A in coming weeks as the specifications and retail boxes of the smartphone have surfaced online. According to a report by ITHome (via GSMArena), the image of the retail boxes look legitimate and this could hint at an imminent launch for the device.
The Redmi Note 5A will be a successor to the current Redmi Note 4. It is likely that Note 5A will be a watered down version of the Redmi Note 5 similar to how Redmi 4A is a cheaper version of the Redmi 4. The report speculates that the Redmi Note 5 is likely to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 or 660 processor.

According to the specifications leaked on Twitter (tweet above), the Note 5A will come with a Full HD 5.5-inch display. Inside, we can expect a tried and tested Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 along with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. An interesting thing to note about this device is the fact that it packs a dual camera on the back as the Redmi Note 5 is not expected to pack a dual camera setup on the back.
The smartphone will pack three cameras in all with the Omni Vision sensors, OV12A10 and OV13880 on the back and a Samsung S5K5E8 sensor on the front. The rear cameras will come with 12 MP and 13 MP sensors while the front camera sensor is expected to feature a 5 MP unit.
