China-based smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is reportedly working on the Redmi Note 4 successor, according to a news report in Android Crunch. Dubbed Redmi Note 5, the smartphone is said to sport an 18:9 aspect ratio screen and a dual-camera set-up on the back.

According to the report, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 would sport a massive 6-inch fullHD+ 18:9 aspect ratio screen. Earlier reports had suggested the Redmi Note 5 may sport a single camera on the back. However, the report in Android Crunch stated that the smartphone is expected to feature a dual-camera set-up on the back utilising a 16-megapixel and 5 MP lens. There is a possibility that the phone will see two variants, with the premium variant getting the dual camera lenses on the back. 

In terms of specifications, the Redmi Note 5 is reported to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, coupled with RAM and storage option of 3GB/4GB and 32GB/64GB, respectively. The phone could come equipped with Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 9 operating system, which is based on Android Nougat. Just like Redmi Note 4, the Redmi Note 5 is reported to house a 4,100 mAh battery with support for fast charging.

Xiaomi recently launched 18:9 screen-based Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in Malaysia. Unlike previous Redmi-series smartphones – Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A – the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus come with major upgrades. Both devices are expected to be launched in the international market soon.
