Now, we have come across a new report by the publication mydrivers.com which suggests otherwise. MyDrivers also notes that Snapdragon 632 will be similar to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636, which is already in the market. That may just be wrong, though, as a rumor has surfaced that claims there will be a Redmi Note 5, and one powered by a Snapdragon 632 to boot.

Last month, an MIUI forum super moderator had claimed that Xiaomi has made a decision to discontinue the Mi Note line and that the Redmi 5 Plus is the spiritual successor to the company's popular Redmi Note 4 from past year. This chipset is basically a downgraded version of the Snapdragon 636 chipset that was announced in October previous year. It not only works with Android devices from Xiaomi, but also from other manufacturers.

Recently, an MIUI forum super moderator claimed that Xiaomi will not release the Redmi Note 5 smartphone this year, instead, the Redmi 5 Plus will act as the Redmi Note 5 for this year. You can expect a slightly lower clock speed as well as a lower-clocked GPU.

As soon as we get some more details about the new Redmi Note 5 including some photos of the handset and a launch date, we will let you guys know. The reason behind the delay in the launch may be because Xiaomi did not want to go with the Snapdragon 630 SoC and even the bigger version Snapdragon 636 SoC. 32GB internal memory can be found in a variant of 3GB of RAM.

According to the report, the Redmi Note 5 will feature a 5.99-inch bezel-less FHD+ display, dual real 12 MP sensors, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of storage. Juicing up the handset is expected to be a 4000mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with Snapdragon 632 SoC and dual rear cameras is better than the Redmi 5 Plus with Snapdragon 625 SoC and single rear camera, which Xiaomi is now selling in the Chinese market.

The latest leak about the handset further reveals that the Redmi Note 5 is going to be priced higher than its predecessor at around Rs. 15,600 (¥1,599).
