A report by 91mobiles which reveals the images suggest that not a lot will be changed with the Redmi Note 5, in terms of its general design. The metal unibody design seen in most of Xiaomi's phones in 2017 is expected to be used on the Redmi Note 5 as well. The renders of the Redmi Note 5 also show off the phone's dual rear cameras which had been leaked earlier.
The dual-camera setup on the back of the phone is expected to be the combination of a 16 MP and a 5 MP sensor along with dual-tone LED flash. The images also reveal that the fingerprint scanner will continue to be present at the back, despite the presence of the dual cameras, one below the other.
The display is expected to be a 5.5-inch full-HD panel with bezels similar to its predecessor. The Redmi Note 5 is expected to come with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset along with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM. Storage is also expected to come in 32 GB and 64 GB options.
In terms of software, the phone is expected to come with Android Nougat 7.1 with Xiaomi's MIUI 9 on top. While pricing has not been revealed yet, the base variant of the Redmi Note 5 is expected to be priced similarly to the Redmi Note 4 at around Rs 10,000.
