Redmi Note 5 Listed Online Ahead of Launch, Xiaomi India Head Teases New 'i' Device

Xiaomi has been widely expected to working on the successor of its popular Redmi Note 4, believed to be launched as Redmi Note 5. Now, a Chinese e-commerce retailer Oppomart has listed the Redmi Note 5 with specifications tipping an imminent launch. Xiaomi’s Manu Kumar Jain, VP and Managing Director Xiaomi India has tweeted out teasing the launch of a new product.

Redmi Note 5 specifications

According to the listed specifications, the alleged Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will run on MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1 OS out-of-the-box. It will sport a 5.99-inch display with 1080×2160 pixels resolution, and as rumoured for weeks, will feature 18:9 aspect ratio. The Oppomart listing teases the Redmi Note 5 being powered by dated Snapdragon 625 processor which seems an old chipset considering Snapdragon 630 is now out. The handset is said to come in 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. On the camera front, there’s a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The dual-SIM Redmi Note 5 is said pack 4000mAh battery.

The Oppomart listing seems to have been pulled now but this definitely points to possible launch in coming weeks. The Oppomart listing was first spotted by The Leaker. The new listing comes days after a placeholder was spotted on JD.com.

Xiaomi has announced reduction on price of its popular Redmi Note 4, and this may be one sign that hints at its successor’s launch. The Redmi Note 4 has been one of the top selling smartphones for Xiaomi this year.

Additionally, Jain shared a teaser on Twitter hinting at launch of a new product, teasing the letter ‘i’. At this point, it isn’t clear whether the new device is a smartphone but we can expect to get more clarity in the coming weeks. The teaser by Jain also confirms a fact that it will be focused on the Indian market.
