Here’s our first look of Xiaomi’s Mi5 and Redmi Note 2


We have been hearing a lot about Xiaomi’s next flagships – the Mi5 and Redmi Note 2. However, today we got to see the first glimpse of the smartphones when purported photos of the Mi 5 and the Redmi Note 2 made their way on to Chinese micro blogging website Weibo over the weekend. The alleged Mi 5 photo shows the rear of the smartphone, and hints at a rather interesting feature — dual-camera setup.

According to the photo, there are two camera lens and dual-LED flash on the top-right corner, and the Mi logo is seen towards the bottom. The overall design is quite similar to the Mi 4, albeit with the camera setup.

The Redmi Note 2 photo, on the other hand, reiterates the presence of a fingerprint scanner at the back. The scanner is placed below the camera lens and LED flash. The photo also reveals that the Redmi Note 2 body will be made of plastic, which is not very surprising considering its price segment.

Mi 5 aka ‘Libra’ is rumoured to sport a 5.3-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display. It will also feature a Snapdragon 820 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 16GB/64GB internal storage, 3,030mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner.

The Redmi Note 2 is likely to flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, and could be powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 chipset along with a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,000mAh battery, LTE support, and run on Android Lollipop wrapped under MIUI 6.
