The Redmi Note 5 Pro’s dual-camera bump looks very familiar

Posted:  February 14, 2018   By:    14 comments   

Xiaomi will be announcing its latest mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, in India this afternoon. These are the successors of the current value for money, Redmi Note 4, and they are setting up the game with a Full Display (18:9) and a new dual-camera setup. After the launch of the iPhone X, the unmistakable vertical dual-camera bump is making its way to more Android phones and from the recent leaks, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow this same design.

As seen here, this is apparently the first live photo of the Redmi Note 5 Pro. It has a familiar iPhone X inspired camera bump which houses two lenses and a flashlight in between. Unlike the iPhone X, the Redmi Note 5 Pro has a sloping frame around the camera module.

Based on the leaked specs provided by GizChina, the Redmi Note 5 Pro will get a 5.99″ 18:9 FullHD+ display and it will run on a more powerful Snapdragon 636 processor that uses Kyro 260 CPU cores.

In terms of variants, there are three for the Indian market – 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB storage and 6GB RAM + 64GB storage. Over at the rear, it has a 12MP f/2.2 + 5MP f/2.0 main cameras, while the front gets a 20MP selfie shooter that has an LED selfie light.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and it is powered by a 4,000mAh battery which still charges via MicroUSB. Out of the box, it runs on MIUI 9 that’s still based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Both Redmi Note 5 models are expected to be announced at 2.30PM Malaysian Time. You can catch the live stream here.

Its similar placement…

Dun feed the drama swan-sta unnecessarily!


if u wanna copy why dont u copy the pretty part ? the camera bump on the X is no where near pretty nor neat


    Whether the camera bump pretty or not, is the signature for people to recognize u r using a five thousand ringgit phone ma…after the cheap redmi note copy the looks then the iphoneX will lost some showoff value lo…


Camera bump is for isheep to break and making Apple store to smile with their fangs out.

Now Xiaomi wants to do the same to gain more broken phone worshipper.

Starting to loose interest with Xiaomi because of this phone. Xiaomi, your apples will be smaller now.


after years of samung and iphone flagship, switched to xiaomi last month, quite impressed with the UI, straight forward and easy to use, I'll give this one a go for me this coming week.


    Pretty impressed with my new "backup" Mi6. The UI is smoother than my old Galaxy Note 5. At 1.6k, real value for money. The camera ain't half bad, I would even say almost iphone 7 quality, much better than my SE. I'm going to give this Chinese manufacturer a go in the future. Just wish their phones wouldn't get bigger and bigger.

    i had a friend before, he was cool and successful one day, he suddenly decided to downgrade from iphone to xiaomi.

    overnight, we can notice the changes. from dreaming of being a astronaut, he suddenly wanted to become a bas kilang driver. from wanting to date a supermodel, he started eyeing a pondan in chowkit…
