UPDATE:: Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is now official.

Ahead of its big event, Xiaomi has revealed the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in its full glory. These will be their latest affordable smartphones that will come with a taller 18:9 aspect ratio display.

As posted earlier, both will be announced in China this coming Thursday, 7 December 2017. Based on its TENAA certification listing, the Redmi 5 will come with a 5.7″ HD+ 720p display, while the larger Redmi 5 Plus will come with a 5.99″ Full HD+ display. At 5.7″ and above, these will be the largest display on the Redmi series yet.

The official photos match what we saw earlier in its TENAA certification listing. While the front gets a taller display, the back looks like a typical Redmi device with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It looks like there will be at least 3 colour options – Black, Pink and Blue.

So far Xiaomi has yet to reveal its final specs and pricing. More details will be revealed in a couple of days time and it looks like one of them has already gotten the green light from SIRIM. In typical Xiaomi fashion, you can expect great specs at a competitive price. What do you think of the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus? Let us know in the comments below.

Blue colour… Yum yum


Still sd625


    Ok lah… For low power consumption. Janji boleh jalan.

      There are better chipset i.e SD 626,630,636.


        Those chips will be cater for the Redmi Note 5 expected to launch next month.


        this is REDMI only, not REDMI NOTE

        so from SD 4xx to SD 6xx is no brainer


    The previous Redmi 4X is Snapdragon 435

    Please note this is Redmi not Redmi Note

    Even so Snapdragon 625 is quite a capable & frugal 14nm chips.


iPhone start using "+" then everyone follow….


    I get what you mean. They should name Redmi 5 plus as Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 as Redmi 5 Minus. That make more sense..


    the link to oldest mention of "plus";…


    and iPhone 6 plus was 2014, bloody 3 years difference


      True, but trend stop on that time.

      After launch “iphone +” branding. Every developer keep following, why can’t they make their own desire branding…


    and another for "+" from HTC;

    again 2011


    We all can thank Apple for showing the world that we need a big phone like Plus iPhone. They created big phone first and other people like Samsung and Xiaomi copy. Apple always innovates. Rest just waiting to copy. Apple invented the letter i and the symbol +.


      Samsung copying apple’s big phone trend?

      Note lineup has been big since galaxy note 1.



      Have you heard of Samsung Mega 6.3 ? It was a 2013 phone with 6.3" screen, that the time iphone still selling 4" iphone 5s, get your fact right.


      you hit your head somewhere? other manufacturer done that YEARS before apple start doing it

      in fact "iPhone" itself is a license from linksys iinm and that to EXIST LONG before apple own "iPhone" appears

      truly living the nickname


      Come on…. iSheep was just being sarcastic.

Redmi 5 how much price Malaysia


    did you even bother to read the article? they haven't launched yet

    typical malaysian


    Redmi note 4, already RM899 with 4 ram gb, I think note 5 price will be RM 13++ above la….jangkaan sahaja


      This is Redmi 5 not Redmi Note 5

      Redmi 5 to replace Redmi 4X
      Redmi 5+ to replace Redmi 4 prime

      Price starting 999 CNY which should be less than RM 700

      btw Redmi Note 5 to be launch in January with dual camera lense

Looks like a great phone, wish it has an os that is not trying to look like ios.

Mamu Non

Is it me or the design for redmi note 4 is better?


I thought Redmi series is supposed to be 5" phone?

RIP 5" phone?


Make sure it doesn’t hang very often like the Leno. Must also be user friendly too.


Wished redmi 5 have smaller screen like 5 inch or less. Usually wont Redmi line have smaller screen than Redmi Note line? Does this means Note will have even bigger screen?


Sd625,630 aiyah….basic only. At least 660, that’s what I’m talking about.

Budget battle continues, hopefully it will be priced below RM499 for Redmi 5 and below RM599 for Redmi 5 Plus.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 although still pretty capable, it is nonetheless almost 2 years old SoC. Qualcomm should stop product producing 28nm based process chipset. They should opted for 16nm process and below for low entry to mid range chipset, below 14nm is much better.
