To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus cleared TENAA certification more than a month ago. It has been seen on the TENAA website. And now, China Telecom, a carrier in China has leaked complete specifications of the Redmi 5. We have all the details below.
There are also another set of teasers (shown below) that have confirmed the phones' 18:9 display. The changes that can are easily visible are thinner bezels on sides on the Redmi 5 that is expected to come with a full-screen design. There will be another variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB onboard storage. Unfortunately, there is no information on the chipset powering the handset but rumors do suggest that it will be the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon. There are no words on if the storage can be expanded with a microSD card or not. The phone will most probably run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat based on MIUI 188.8.131.52 instead of MIUI 9.

The front-facing camera will have 5MP resolution, similar to current Redmi phones, and in terms of connectivity, the phone will reportedly have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a microUSB 2.0 port (instead of USB Type-C), and dual SIM slots.
The device is expected to feature a much smaller 3200mAH battery in comparison to last year's Redmi 4. Alongside the image, some key specifications of the attractive device are also out now.
In China, the phone is priced at CNY 599 that translates to approximately Rs 6,000.
There are two premium editions and these come with fingerprint scanners as well as upgraded specifications. Xiaomi is scheduled to launch the smartphone on November 30th. The device has been listed online again and this time it was spotted on Oppomart.
As stated earlier, the Redmi 5 will arrive in several memory configurations.
Flipkart has just revealed that it will have exclusivity on the Xiaomi "Desh Ka Smartphone" in India. He hinted at the letter "I" but we aren't sure if this related to the new device being a smartphone or not.
Xiaomi launched the selfie-centric Xiaomi Y-series smartphones in India, and the company is already gearing up for their next launch.
Xiaomi also announced a reduction in price for the Redmi Note 4 and this could be the real key to the fact that a new model is on the way. That's because the display is taller than any Redmi device released so far.
