Apparently, the Xiaomi Redmi devices have been so successful that multiple variants are being released for each of the devices, making it rather difficult to keep up with the Redmis. Now, we have reported earlier that the Xiaomi Redmi 5 with the full-screen design could well be launched in India as the Redmi Note 5. However, two new Redmi Note 5 variants have cleared 3C certification, which makes us believe that the next-generation device still exists.
From what we know so far, these two new Note 5 variants have been spotted on the 3C certification database and bear the model numbers MET7S and MEE7S. Apparently, these model numbers have been registered by Xiaomi Communications Technology Co. Ltd reported on January 8, 2018. Also, the model numbers to seem to have been revealed by the certification database as mentioned above.
The Redmi 5 had initially arrived with the model numbers MDT1 and the MDE1 while the superlative Redmi 5 Plus boasted the model numbers MEE7 and the Xiaomi MET7, both respectively. These phones had initially been launched in China in December 2017 going on sale later that month. Given the model numbers, these two devices that have been spotted on the 3C certification database may also end up being two more devices in the Redmi lineup and may not be the Redmi 5 or even the 5 Plus.
As far as the specs and features are concerned, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is likely to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC. However, this chipset is yet to be announced and not too much is known about this new chipset as well. Besides, this model will also feature dual rear cameras as well as a 5.99-inch display capable of an FHD+ resolution with a display resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an 18:9 aspect ratio. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is likely to have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor since there is a full-screen design and a nearly bezel-less display.
