After announcing the Redmi Note 5A a few days ago, Xiaomi is now looking to launch a base variant of the device. The unannounced Xiaomi MC3TB had passed TENAA certification yesterday, and it’s likely the device in question is the Redmi 5A. As far the main highlight of the device goes, it will have a metal unibody design, a smaller display and 3GB of RAM.
The Redmi 5A will also include a 5-inch display offering a 1280 × 720 pixel resolution. Under the hood, the device will run a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz which will be paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage. The device will feature a microSD slot, allowing users to expand the memory up to 128GB. Furthermore, the Redmi 5A will run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box with MIUI 9 on top.
In terms of imaging, there will be a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, whereas at the front it will sport a 5-megapixel shooter. Connectivity wise, the device will have Dual SIM support, 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth and a 3.5mm audio port. The smartphone will likely come with nine different colour options at launch: black, rose gold, gold, white, blue, red, pink, silver and grey. Xiaomi is looking to the various color options as a way to distinguish its budget phones.
At this moment, there’s no way to know when the phone will be unveiled, but it shouldn’t be too long now considering the device already went through TENAA. We should know more in the coming days.
