Hardware, of course, will see an overhaul in the Redmi Note 5. According to the leak, the Redmi Note 5 will offer a 5.5-inch 1080p screen – much like the Redmi Note 4 – but will come apparently come with improved outdoor legibility and better contrast. The phone will reportedly be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB/4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage.

It will reportedly come with a 16-megapixel camera on the rear and a 13-megapixel camera on the front. It will reportedly be backed by a 3,790mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 4.0. On the software side, the phone will reportedly ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat-based MIUI.
