As a successor to the Xiaomi Redmi 4, we would be taking a deep look at the specs of the Xiaomi Redmi 5. This we would do to ascertain if it is a worthy successor. Though the Redmi 5 has not been announced, there are available specifications already, and with the way things are looking, the device is ready.

The previous version possesses some features which we think should be upgraded and Xiaomi has done just that. Stay with us as we walk you through the all in all of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 device.
A display type of IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is featured on the device. The display size is pegged at 5.0 inches, while also being protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. With this display size, it is sure your phone handling would be overly comfortable.
PROCESSOR AND OS
The Redmi 5 device runs on an Android operating system v7.1.1 (Nougat). Based on the processor, it comes in two variants. One with the Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 630. Both processors are Octa-core Cortex-A53 with a processor speed of 2.0 GHz and 2.2 GHz respectively.
INTERNAL STORAGE AND RAM
For your storage of videos, music, files and other documents, the Redmi 5 comes in three variants. This includes the 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB variants. Taking care of the smooth running of the device’s applications is a 2 GB and 3 GB RAM. I think I am beginning to like the way smartphone varies when it comes to the internal storage and RAM. It gives users a wide range of choices.
On the rear, there’s a 16 MP camera, with phase detection autofocus and a LED flash too. While the front facing camera quality is pegged at 5 MP. Other features of the camera include Geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, HDR and panorama. On our own accord, we think that the difference between the front facing and rear camera is a bit large. What do you say as regards a 16 MP rear and 8 MP front camera? Better right? But then this is how it is.
As its powerhouse, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 phone features a non-removable Li-Po 3680 mAh battery. We are inclined to give this one to heavy smartphone users. Light and average smartphone users would surely not need up to this to get their daily work done. This battery capacity should last a heavy user for a time worth the while.
Quite impressing is the fact that this device features a fingerprint sensor. This sensor is located on the front of the device. It comes in the black and gold color variant.
PRICE OF THE XIAOMI REDMI 5 SMARTPHONE
The price of the device is pegged at 130 EUR. The price of the device in Nigeria ranges from N45,000 to N60,000. This i think is definitely a very fair price.
