Xiaomi has a perfect gift for loner geeks. The Chinese company is going to announce the Redmi 5 in India on February 14. Xiaomi has already put up teaser on its social media accounts.

The Redmi 5 sports an aluminium body with rounded corners and thin bezels. It doesn’t get any physical buttons at the front. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the back. The duo comes in blue, gold, rose gold, and black.

The phone features a 5.7-inch HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset. On the photography front, it comes with a 12 MP rear camera with 1.25-micron pixels, f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, and LED flash. The front selfie shooter is a 5 MP module with a soft-light flash. The phone draws power from a 3,300 mAh battery which resides inside its 7.7 mm slim body.

Along with the Redmi 5, the company will also launch a Plus variant that comes with a bigger 6-inch Full HD+ screen. Most of its specifications are same as those of its younger sibling, except for the battery which gets a bump up to 4,000 mAh.

The rumour has it that Xiaomi might rebrand these phones as Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Plus for India. The Redmi series is very popular in India, so Xiaomi may want to take advantage of that branding.
