The Redmi Note 5 is powered by 2GHz octa-core processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Redmi Note 5 packs a 12-megapixel (f/2.2, 1.25-micron) primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The Redmi Note 5 is powered by a 4000mAh non removable battery. It measures 158.50 x 75.45 x 8.05 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 180.00 grams.
The Redmi Note 5 is a Dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, Micro-USB, FM, 3G and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone include Fingerprint sensor, Compass/ Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope. So, no more Redmi Notes, eh? Or so we thought until Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi 5 Plus in India calling it the Redmi Note 5. The Redmi 5 Plus certainly looked like a proper successor of the Redmi Note 4 so we’re glad the company’s lineup naming is back at making sense.
The Redmi 5 Plus may have received a pretty obvious upgrade, but that’s nearly all that’s new. The 5 Plus keeps the Snapdragon 625 chip and 4,000mAh battery of the Redmi Note 4. The old 5MP selfie camera stays too, while the rear cam now has bigger pixels but smaller aperture.
