Rumor: Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are coming soon

According to the latest rumors, Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are coming soon. A report out of China suggests that Xiaomi is planning to kick off its Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus promotional campaign in the next couple of days, and the source of this information also claims that the ‘full-screen’ design will be the main selling point of these phones, along with their price points, of course.

Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus will look considerably different than their predecessors, if the rumors and leaks regarding the ‘full-screen’ design end up being true. These two phones will have considerably thinner bezels than any other REdmi-branded smartphone out there, and they’re actually expected to be quite affordable.

These two handsets are expected to ship with a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, well, at least the Redmi 5 Plus is, as we’re still not sure whether the Redmi 5 will sport a fingerprint scanner or not.

The Redmi 5 is expected to come with a 5.7-inch screen that will support HD+ resolution of 720 x 1,440 pixels. The Snapdragon 450 chipset is expected to power the phone along with 3 GB of RAM. It is expected to carry a pricing of 799 Yuan (~$120).

The Redmi 5 Plus is expected to carry better specs. It is rumored to feature a 5.99-inch display that will produce FHD+ resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 pixels. It is likely to be driven by Snapdragon 625 chipset. Its dual camera system may include a 5-megapixel sensor and a 12-megapixel sensor.

It is expected to arrive in variants like 3 GB RAM / 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM / 64 GB storage. These models are expected to carry respective price tags of 999 Yuan (~$150) and 1,299 Yuan (~$195).

The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus will probably sport on-screen buttons due to their thin bezels, which is also something new for Xiaomi when it comes to Redmi-branded smartphones. The two phones are expected to arrive in the coming weeks.
