The Redmi Note 5 was said to be a confirmed no-show a few weeks ago, so it's a bit surprising to hear of a rumor claiming that a Redmi Note 5 with a mysterious Snapdragon 632 will be launched in the second half of 2018.

Xiaomi's stance on the Redmi Note 5 is unknown. The Redmi Note series is undoubtedly the company's biggest cash cow, as previous devices in the line have sold tens of millions of units. Xiaomi released the Redmi 5 Plus last month, and word from multiple sources claimed the device would take the place of the supposed Redmi Note 5. That may just be wrong, though, as a rumor has surfaced that claims there will be a Redmi Note 5, and one powered by a Snapdragon 632 to boot.

Oh, it's not just you. The Snapdragon 632 is also alien to us. Qualcomm released the Snapdragon 630 and 636 last year for the mid-range, and the 632 is supposedly an underclocked variant of the 636. That makes just about no sense, however, as the very able Snapdragon 630 still hasn't seen significant real-life utility.

According to the report, the Redmi Note 5 will feature a 5.99-inch bezel-less FHD+ display, dual real 12 MP sensors, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. A H2 2018 launch is said to be possible, with the device carrying a price tag in the US$250 region.

You'd do well to take all of this with a pinch of salt.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
