The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 launched in September was the company's first smartphone with an 18:9 display. New image renders of the alleged Redmi 5 Plus now suggest that the company could soon introduce a Redmi branded smartphone with an 18:9 FullView display.
The new image renders which appear on Chinese social networking site Weibo show both front and back panels of the alleged Redmi 5 Plus. The image reported by GSMArena allow reveals a vertical dual-camera setup on the back of the smartphone, which will also be a first for the Redmi line-up.
However, the authenticity of the image should be taken with a grain of salt, as according to GizmoChina report Xiaomi has rarely changed much on the design front of its Redmi lineup.
