Xiaomi's alleged Redmi 5 budget smartphone has been leaked in images and specifications, indicating the handset may launch later this year. So, we will discuss all the things about Xiaomi Redmi 5 which we have got through our resources:
Xiaomi Redmi 5 Leaked Specifications:
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 is said to come in two SKUs based on chipset: one will have Snapdragon 625 while another will have Snapdragon 630 under the hood.
It's worth noting that Xiaomi Redmi series (not including the Redmi Note series) has so far only included Snapdragon 400-series of chipsets.
If the leak comes out to be true then it will be an upgrade in terms of SoC for the series.
Xiaomi Redmi 5 might include 5-inch full-HD display
16-megapixel rear camera
expandable storage support
5-megapixel front camera
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 is said to run on MIUI 9.0 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

There will be two more variants much like its predecessor: CNY 1,039 (roughly Rs. 10,000) for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and CNY 1,099 (roughly Rs. 10,500) for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
