After the successful launch of its Redmi Note 4 in India, it looks like Xiaomi is preparing to launch another phone in its product lineup. The upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 5 just got passed through the Chinese certification site as model number MAE136, while the listing does not include Smartphone’s name, Chinese media has speculated the phone to be the upcoming Redmi 5.
The reports contain specifications of the phone as well as some images. The phone will have a metal build with some rounded edges and similar to the recent Xiaomi Note 4, the device will have a fingerprint sensor on its back. The camera will be in a location similar to iPhone’s, and it will have a LED flash too.
The device will sport a 5″ display, slots for managing its Dual SIM setup and it will pack a 4000 mAh battery. The device will be almost 141 mm tall, and reports say that it will be 8.9mm thick. Apart from battery, screen size and phone dimensions, no other information has come to light, but from the leaked information, it is sure that phone will be aimed at mid to high range smartphone market.
While Motorola and Nokia are preparing to launch some new smartphones at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, it is sure that Redmi 5 will not be launched in the event as the company has already cleared that it will skip the event altogether.
Xiaomi has new Mi 6 also on the line, which, as per some leaks, may be world’s fastest phone on the market at the time of launch. The China of Apple has been trying to grow lately, but companies like Oppo and Vivo have made more sales in recent months, it will be interesting to see what Xiaomi does to get its thrown back.
