Xiaomi is all set to launch two models Redmi 5 and 5 Plus on December 7 in China. There is no in-detail information about the specs and features yet. But we think that both models may sport minimum bezels screen, edge-to-edge display with the trending 18:9 aspect ratio.
The launch is made official with the image on Weibo that specifies the launch date. It is rumored that the handset will be unveiled by the pop band SNH48 members. Twelve of them can be seen in the image posted and each member holding Redmi 5.
Xiaomi’s global spokesperson, Donovan Sung tweets on upcoming devices as “Is everyone ready for the all-new Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus? We’re launching these two new devices in China on Thursday, Dec 7. Giving everyone a sneak preview! #Xiaomi”
It is observed that the front panel is a full view screen with a camera and fingerprint scanner on the back. You can view the phone in action in leaked commercials. The device has a tall screen with no home button. The Redmi 5 may come in four colors black, Rose Gold and blue shades.
The quote on the image says “Redmi 5/Redmi 5Plus. A Phone for a Thousand”, which means that the phone may be available at CNY1000 or about AED 555. The next generation upcoming series is geared up with updated hardware with all new design.
However, we need to hold on until December 7 to know about the detailed and accurate information of the models from specs to pricing.
