Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 4 last year which was a huge success and was one of the most sold phones in India. That phone is now approximately a year old and is due for a replacement. A new report says Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 5 in the second quarter of 2018 with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC. The phone was expected to launch in the first month of 2018 but it has been delayed by few months because Xiaomi decided to change few things.
According to a report by MySmartPrice, the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is delayed due to Xiaomu deciding to launch the device with the Snapdragon 632 SoC instead of the previously decided Snapdragon 636 SoC launched last October. Due to Qualcomm delaying the launch of the Snapdragon 632, Xiaomi had to delay the launch of the Redmi Note 5. We can expect a slightly lower clock speed as well as a lower-clocked GPU from the Snapdragon 632. However, the Snapdragon 632 is expected to have the Qualcomm Spectra 160 ISP, which offers better optimization for dual-camera setups than the Snapdragon 625. This also points to the fact that the Redmi Note 5 might have a dual camera setup.
November last year, the device was listed for a brief moment of time on China’s online retailer JD.com, suggesting that the launch is in the process. Through the teaser had no specifications or images, it had a price of CNY 8, 888 which is approximately Rs 88,000. This won’t definitely be the price of the smartphone. It will launch most probably in the price bracket of sub-Rs 15,000.
