After launching Xiaomi Redmi 4 smartphone recently, the company seems to be working on its next Redmi smartphone. Some live images of a smartphone which is dubbed as Xioami Redmi 5 have now surfaced online. Earlier, a Xiaomi smartphone with model number MAE136 which was said to the alleged Redmi 5 was spotted on TENNA, a Chinese certification website.
As per a report of MobileXpose, the Redmi 5 smartphone will come with a polycarbonate body and will be powered by ARM processor clocked at 2GHz. However, the earlier TENAA listing showed that the Redmi 5 will instead come with a full metal body and with a processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The front of the device shows a LED flash along with MI logo. Apart from that, the newly uploaded images show no sign of the expected rear fingerprint sensor on the device. We suggest you take these images with a pinch of salt as, at this point, we can’t confirm you the authenticity of these images.
