Redmi 5/Redmi 5 Plus. The phone is expected to run on Android 7.1.2 with MIUI 9 skin on the top.

Besides that, there isn't anything extraordinary about the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. The retailer AliExpress has already listed the smartphone on its website before its launch with the price. According to the listing, Redmi 5 Plus comes with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. The chipset will be Snapdragon 450 - a 14nm process unit with octa-core CPU and Adreno 506 GPU. The Redmi 5 Plus, on the flip side, might come with Snapdragon 625 SoC on board. These are 2GB RAM plus 16GB storage, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM plus 64GB internal storage.

Priced at Rs.4,999, the phone come with a metallic matte finish and features a dedicated micro SD card slot for storage expansion, Xiaomi Regional Business Head South and East Sunil Baby told reporters at the launch. It will be powered by a 3200mAh battery which is significantly smaller than Redmi 4's 4100mAh one. It' sad to see Xiaomi decreasing the battery capacities in its smartphones.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus set to launch in China tomorrow, the pricing of both the phone have reportedly been leaked ahead of launch.

Considering Xiaomi Redmi 4 costs just Rs. 6,999, it may come as a disappointment for many to spend twice as much for a smartphone that only offers a tall FullView display.
