Tonight, some users found a packaging of a Xiaomi product posted on Weibo. Surprisingly, it was a smartphone that was never expected. Today, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus Boxing was leaked.
From the name ‘Plus’ we think that it will be a high-end version of Xiaomi Redmi 5. The five series of Redmi will be listed like this:
- Redmi 5A – Lower version
- Redmi 5 – Standard version
- Redmi 5 Plus – High version
However, there’s no configuration or price leaked. It’s the first exposure of Redmi 5 Plus. But, the flagship will be similar to the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Rumors suggest that the Note 5 will integrate metal body design, an antenna with nano-injection molding process, and fingerprint recognition. Redmi Note 5 will embed a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The heart of the flagship will be MediaTek Helio P25 processor along with built-in 3 / 4GB memory and 16 / 32GB storage space. On the front will be a 12MP camera and a dual 16 MP + 5MP camera at the rear. The infrared port will remain inherited.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus should be reduced to 5 inches in size. We won’t find that much gap between the hardware, same RAM, same storage, different camera, and different SoC.
The higher version of Redmi 4, 4X was priced at 699 Yuan ($106). Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus might be little expensive with similar specs to Redmi Note 5. We expect it to be around 899 Yuan ($136).
