Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus revealed in pictures ahead of early December announcement
Today, we have more information about a slightly improved version of the Redmi 5, which will be made available in Europe starting January 2018. Apparently, the smartphone will be launched on the market as Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, even though it's been previously leaked as Redmi Note 5.
Since the Redmi 5 Plus has been recently certified by TENAA, the Chinese regulatory commission, we now know it's real and that it will soon go official. Along with some of the phone's picture, a couple of details about its specs popped up too.
So, unlike the standard Redmi 5 that sports a 5.7-inch HD+ display, the Plus model comes with a slightly larger 5.99-inch FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) screen. Hardware-wise, the phablet packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB RAM and either 32GB or 64GB expandable storage.
When it comes to photography features, the Redmi 5 Plus seems rather average, as the phone offers a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 5-megapixel selfie snapper.
A fingerprint sensor is visible on the back side of the phone, while under the hood there's a massive 4,000 mAh battery. The Redmi 5 Plus will run Android Nougat right out of the box and it will be available in black and silver.
