"Bezel-less" Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 images leaked ahead of launch!
Chinese device maker Xiaomi is yet to reveal anything about the much-anticipated mid-range Redmi Note 5 officially, but rumors and leaks about it have been pouring in almost every day. Now, alleged hands-on images and specs of the upcoming Redmi Note 5 have surfaced on popular Chinese platform Weibo suggesting that it is a "bezel-less" device. Here's what the phone is rumored to offer!
Leaked specs in line with rumors
The pictures, features, and the specification sheet of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 spotted on the Chinese micro-blogging site, Weibo, are reportedly in line with most of the previous leaks and rumors that have been making the rounds on the Internet lately.
Redmi Note 5 to come with minimum bezels
The alleged Redmi Note 5 images show that the phone appears to come with a minimal bezel display and 18:9 aspect ratio. The posted specs sheet also shows that the device would sport a 5.99-inch display. The mid-range phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage.
Massive battery for a long battery life
The fresh leak claims that Redmi Note 5 would have a 12MP rear camera. Going by the images, the device has a front camera, but its resolution wasn't revealed. The upcoming phone would also have a massive 4,000mAh battery. As it is an "almost" full-screen device, the front-facing fingerprint sensor is expected to be moved to the rear panel.
Will Redmi Note 5 get Oreo?
Redmi Note 5 is expected run on Android 7 Nougat. However, there's no word on whether Xiaomi would bring Android 8 Oreo to its upcoming phone. Its predecessor, Redmi Note 4, would reportedly receive Oreo but there's no official announcement as of now.
What about the price?
Redmi Note 5 was earlier spotted on a Chinese e-commerce website for a brief time. It revealed nothing except the price, which was a whopping CNY 8,888 (approximately Rs. 87,000). However, Chinese phone blog GizmoChina ruled it out, saying it was only a gimmick as the number "8" is considered lucky. However, another online retailer JD.com displayed a price-tag of $199 (nearly Rs. 13,000).
