This year all the smartphone companies are focusing to get out smartphones with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. Xiaomi first jumped on this trend last year with the first Mi Mix smartphone after which they launched the Mi Mix 2 which makes up their whole arsenal of the bezel-less display smartphones. However, today another smartphone with a bezel-less display showed up on China’s TENAA certification website. Apparently, this new smartphone will be joining the Mi Mix 2 to make a name for the company in the highly competitive bezel-less display segment.
The listing doesn’t mention any name for the device, however, a report from xda-developers claims that the device is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, the successor to the highly popular Redmi Note 4. Below are the images of the smartphone,
In the front image, it seems as if the company has removed the capacitive touch buttons as there are no markings for them, and the company might offer on-screen navigation buttons similar to the Mi Mix 2. It can also be seen that the device does have bezels which are small and might help with gripping the smartphone.
On the rear, we get to see a similar look to the Redmi Note 4. It has a curved back with antenna lines running through. The device seems to come with a single rear camera with an LED flash and a fingerprint scanner below it.
The TENAA listing only had the images listed and no other specifications of the device were shared. However, recently a report on Weibo said that the alleged Redmi Note 5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. It may sport a 5.7-inch 18:9 aspect ration HD+ display and will come with 32GB of internal storage. The device could be priced at 899 Yuan (Approximately Rs. 8,835).
