Upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus will arrive with 18:9 FullView display
Xiaomi's upcoming mid-range smartphone offering, the Redmi 5 Plus, recently leaks in image renders showing the device's FullView display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and dual rear camera setup with dual-LED flash.
Before we can even get over Xiaomi's newly-launched Redmi Y1 and Redmi Y1 Lite, another Redmi series smartphone is now on its way. The device in question is the mid-ranger Redmi 5 Plus. A few days ago, a supposed packaging of the phone, as well as some its live images, surfaced out into the wild. Once again, a new render of the upcoming Xiaomi handset appeared on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, revealing its front and back panels. As of now, the authenticity of the leaked photograph is still in question so it is advisable to take this one with a pinch of salt.
Going by the images, we can see that the Redmi 5 Plus sports a FullView display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, indicating that Xiaomi has finally decided to make the full-screen trend available to the mid-range Redmi lineup of smartphones. Furthermore, the photo reveals that there will be a vertically-positioned dual rear camera setup with a dual-LED flash. A circle-shaped, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner also exists on the phone. There are antenna lines that go across the top and bottom parts of the back panel. We can notice that the power button and volume rockers are on the left side of the device.
Rumors have it that the Redmi 5 Plus will either arrive with a Snapdragon 625 chipset or the newer Snapdragon 630 processor under the hood. It is said to pack 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in memory storage, while it might also come with a beefier variant. Sadly, we still don't have information about the handset's release date. However, we believe that the device will launch soon.
