Taiwan NCC has certified two new phones which could be Xiaomi Redmi 5 and 5 Plus. Recently, two Xiaomi phones have been certified by TENAA as well, and they are identified with the codes MEE7 and MET7. On Taiwan NCC’s listings, the phones are identified with the code MEG7, which may correspond to the Taiwanese variant. MEE7 and ME7 instead may be the version for China Mobile of the phone. Unluckily, Taiwan NCC did not release any of the specs of the devices, but TENAA has released some images and some of the main specs of these phones which should be officially launched in November.
Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus seems to have a bezel less display with a size of 5.99 inches, an 18:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixel. The standard variant instead should have an HD+ resolution. On the hardware side we may see two different processors on these devices: the octa core Snapdragon 450 by Qualcomm or the octa core Snapdragon 625 that may be reserved for the Plus version. The rear camera is expected to have a resolution of 12 MP, while the front camera should have a 5 MP resolution. The battery instead will have a capacity of 4000 mAh at least in the Plus variant, and it may guarantee two days of battery life.
Xiaomi Redmi 5 and 5 Plus may be released in two different configurations: one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage and a more powerful one with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM. The price of Redmi 5 Plus in the first configuration may be around 130 euros, while the 4 GB RAM version may cost 165 euros. Together with these phones, we also expect the launch of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which is expected to come with the octa core Snapdragon 630 or even Snapdragon 660 SoC (or maybe two versions with both the chipsets).
