Xiaomi Redmi 5 to come with MIUI 9 out of the box
Xiaomi Redmi 5 will arrive on December 7, but with so many leaks there might not be much left to announce. We already saw what the phone will look like and learned a bunch of its key specs. Latest information reveals that the Redmi 5 will have a dual hybrid SIM slot and run MIUI 9 out of the box.
According to a leaked PDF that appears to be the warranty card, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 can have either two nano SIM cards or one, coupled with a micro SD. There is a disclaimer that only one of the cards can use a 4G network, meaning the Redmi 5 will most likely have either a Snapdragon 625 chipset or Helio P20 by Mediatek.
The MIUI 9 teaser was officially posted on Weibo by Xiaomi with an already familiar slogan from previous leaks. It says “A phone for a thousand”, implying the Redmi 5 will cost CNY1,000 or $150.
Other specs, leaked by TENAA, include the FullView display with 18:9 ratio and three different RAM + storage combos - 2 GB/16 GB, 3 GB/32 GB and 4 GB/64 GB. The camera on the back will be 12 MP, while the front one will come with a 5 MP sensor.
