Here is another look at the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5

The Redmi Note 5 is probably one of Xiaomi's most anticipated mid-range Android smartphones. We've been talking about the sequel to the popular Redmi Note 4 for quite a while now, but even after the first live pictures showing the phone leaked online, we still didn't know much about what's under the hood.

Thankfully, a new picture of the phone has now been published on China's Weibo, which shows off some of the Redmi Note 5's specifications. For starters, we can see that the phablet will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 CPU, a standard choice for mid-range handsets.

Also, the phone sports a 5.99-inch display with full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Other specs listed in the image include 64GB internal memory, 4,000 mAh battery, 12-megapixel camera and Android 7.1.2 Nougat.

Once again, the image confirms the Redmi Note 5 features a bezel-less design, which means the fingerprint sensor will be moved to the back side.

We have yet to learn when Xiaomi will introduce the Redmi Note 5, but we're certain it will be priced competitively.

"Once again, the image confirms the Redmi Note 5 features a bezel-less design, which means the fingerprint sensor will be moved to the back side." I thought Redmi Note series always has their FPS on the back

SD625 again? RN4 and redmi4prime also use that processor for almost a year now. they should move on to SD630 or SD636 (RN5 and RN4 can't beat RN3pro's SD650 performance :v)

Nothing wrong with using the SD625 in a sub 200 USD smartphone. The SOC is still quite decent. Beside that Xiaomi can deliver software updates to a wider range of devices since they have to do the code work just for SD625 soc. Wouldn't be surprised to see the Redmi Note 4 and other SD625 phones getting Android 8.0 in the future along with the Redmi Note 5 line.
