Amid the speculations around the next flagship smartphone Mi 7 to be unveiled at MWC 2018, Xiaomi seems to be focusing on the low-price smartphone range. The successor to the immensely popular Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has been reported to pass through China’s 3C certification authority. Two new Redmi Note 5 models – MEE7S and MET7S – have attained certification, as per a report. While the recent rumours suggested that the smartphone could be launched in the second quarter of this year, it has now been reported that the Redmi Note 5 could be launched by February-end.

In a MyDrivers report, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is said to have cleared its way through 3C certification, which is equivalent to US FCC. The report further sheds some light on the specifications of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor for the base variant and the Snapdragon 636 SoC for the top model. The primary difference between the two is the underclocking done in the Snapdragon 630 to make it less powerful than the Snapdragon 636 but comparatively more powerful than the Snapdragon 630 SoC. Both the models are said to come with the latest version of MIUI 9, which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Several other reports have so far hinted at the possibility of a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. The base variant is expected to come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage, while the top model, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, is expected to pack 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. Furthermore, the smartphone will sport a dual camera setup at the rear with a 16-megapixel primary sensor and 5-megapixel secondary sensor to produce ‘Bokeh’ effect. It is also expected to come with an 8-megapixel front camera, along with the face unlock functionality.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is purported to pack a 4100mAh battery, similar to the one seen inside the predecessor Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. However, unlike Redmi Note 4, the Redmi Note 5 battery will support 18W fast charging feature.

For the pricing, the MyDrivers report suggests that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant will be priced at 1,499 yuan (roughly Rs 15,000) and the 4GB RAM/ 64GB model will cost 1,799 yuan. The report says that both the devices could be launched by the end of the month of February.
