Xiaomi is preparing for the launch of the Redmi Note 5 after recently releasing the Redmi Note 5A. While the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be the successor to last year’s Redmi Note 4, it will also come with a dual camera setup on the back.
Leaking complete specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, a Weibo post points at a 5.5-inch display, dual cameras, up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and a MediaTek Helio P25 processor. The MediaTek part is not surprising as Xiaomi has generally released MediaTek versions in China while the Indian market gets Qualcomm versions.
