Leading smartphone maker Xiaomi has released a new teaser revealing two key features of the upcoming product, which is slated for debut later this week in India.
In the latest teaser, Xiaomi's #GiveMe5 trailer has confirmed that the new device will boast 18:9 display aspect ratio, which guarantees rich cinematic viewing experience.
The company also showed that the device will have higher pixel density, hinting that the Redmi series mobile might come with full HD+ (2160x1080p).
Sadly, both the features don't give away any clinching evidence to know whether the upcoming product is a Redmi 5 mobile or the Redmi Note 5 phablet series, as both the devices are said to have aforementioned display features.
But several reports have indicated that the Redmi Note 5 will be a star attraction on the February 14 Xiaomi event. The company is also calling it the 'all-rounder' in the teaser and the Redmi Note 4 in 2017 too was referred with the same name during the build-up to the launch.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5: All you need to know
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is said to sport a metallic shell on the back and a 5.99-inch full HD+ (2160x1080p) Full View screen having 18:9 aspect ratio.
Under-the-hood, it is expected to house Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 CPU backed by 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB storage, Android Nougat-based MIUI 9 (Oreo update later in the year) and a 4,100mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0 capability.
As far as the camera is concerned, it is expected to come packed with dual (16MP + 5MP) snapper on the back and an 8MP shooter.
Word on the street is that the Redmi Note 5 might cost ¥1,499 Yuan (around $237 or Rs 15,000) and is likely to be available in three colour options, including grey, black and blue.
Rumor has it that Xiaomi might re-launch Redmi 5 Plus as the Redmi Note 5 in India, but we are not convinced with the speculations, as the former houses single primary camera on the back and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core, same as in the Redmi Note 4. Only change is that it feature FullView sceen 18:9 display aspect ratio. So, it would be unwise for Xiaomi to sell Redmi Note 5 with new design and incorporate same internal hardware of its predecessor.
Xiaomi is expected to reveal few more features of Redmi Note 5 through teasers before the official launch and we will be able to more clearer picture.
