A new leak is suggesting that Xiaomi will release three phones with a full display: Xiaomi Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5. After the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA certified two of them, this new leak seems to come from a reliable source and suggests a big change of design with these devices. All the phones, according to the voices that have just surfaced online, will have a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, but the size and the resolutions of the full displays will be different depending on the device that you will choose to buy.
It seems like Xiaomi Redmi 5 will have a 5.5 inch display with an HD+ resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels, while Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5 will have a big 5.9 inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. There will also be important differences on the hardware side. Redmi 5 should be released in two different configurations: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, and another one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. We do not know which SoC the standard version will sport.
Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is tipped to come in two variants: one with the octa core MediaTek Helio P25 processor and another with a Qualcomm Snapdragon. There should surely be a version with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, according to the source, should sport an octa core Snapdragon 636 SoC by Qualcomm, supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. There is no mention about Snapdragon 660, the most awaited SoC from the mid-range. Redmi 5 Plus is expected to cost 1099 Yuan in China (around 165 dollars), while Note 5 should have a price of 1599 Yuan (240 dollars).
