As Xiaomi is prepping up to launch much-awaited flagship, Mi Mix 2, in India (which will be unveiled tomorrow, i.e. Oct 10), the successor of the mass puller Redmi Note 4 has once again popped up online. Unlike the previous siting, this time Alleged Redmi Note 5 appears in full glory.
The new leak of Redmi Note 5 once again points towards an 18:9 display and dual cameras at the rear end. The leaked image posted on the Chinese site shows that the phone has near edge to edge display with very narrow bezels on the side. However, the leak doesn’t have any mention of the screen size. The phone appears to feature on-screen navigation buttons. Since the display is off, we can’t say how wide the bezels actually are (there might very well be thick black borders).

On the rear, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (alleged) seems to have a partial metal unibody design, with plastic caps on top and bottom, which further asserts the fact that this could very well be an aggressively priced budget smartphone.
