Three Xiaomi devices on the way with full-screen displays
A few days ago, two Redmi devices were spotted on TENAA, with both having identical specifications and dimensions bar a slight difference in memory. New information has surfaced pointing towards an additional device that will feature the same full-screen 18:9 display we saw on the "MEE7" and "MET7".
The first of those is said to be the Redmi 5 which is expected to sport a 5.5-inch HD+ display. It is, of course, in the mold of the 18:9 ratio, which would give it the feel of a 5-inch device—like the Redmi 4 was. It will feature 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, and an unnamed processor. There was talk of a Snapdragon 450 on a HD+ Redmi device last week, and it would be a match.
The second device may be the Redmi 5 Plus, which is said to be identical to the Redmi 5, barring differences in screen size and memory. This one features a 5.9-inch FHD+ display, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. We expect it to come in two variants: a Helio P25 model (The Helio P25 is clocked at 2.6 GHz, and has been used on FHD+ devices like the UMIDIGI S2 Pro, so it slots in quite perfectly), and a Snapdragon 636 one—albeit with a 3/32 GB configuration.
The last of them will be the much awaited Redmi Note 5. Like the Redmi 5 Plus, it sports a 5.9-inch FHD+ display. It also opts for 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Previous Redmi Notes have come in both MTK and Snapdragon variants, so we expect it to feature both the Helio P25 and the Snapdragon 636, like the Redmi 5 Plus.
Prices are unknown at the moment but there's a chance the most powerful of these, the Snapdragon 636 Redmi Note 5, comes with a price tag in the US$250 region. Considering what we've seen from other devices featuring the weaker Snapdragon 630, it would be a steal at that price point.
