According to fresh reports out of China, the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be one of the first smartphones to be powered by the soon-to-be-announced Snapdragon 632 SoC. This is unlike what the rumors mills have been suggesting for the past few months which pointed to a Snapdragon 635 SoC instead.

Along with these newly leaked information, Chinese news site MyDrivers has also revealed that the Redmi Note 5 could debut somewhere during the second quarter of the year. With that in mind, we will be expecting Qualcomm to announce their new generations of Snapdragon 63x chips perhaps during the first quarter of the year as well.
As per previous reports, the Redmi Note 5 is rumored to come with a 5.99-inches FHD+ display that has a 18:9 aspect ratio (similar to the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus). Under its memory compartment, we can expect to see 4GB of RAM coupled with 64GB worth of internal storage space. Camera-wise, there will be a 12MP+12MP dual-camera setup at the back, as well as a 5MP front-facing camera.
Compared to its recent Redmi counterparts, the Redmi Note 5 will come with a slightly heftier price tag which kicks off from 1,599 Yuan ($246).
