The render of the Redmi 5 has been leaked by a Chinese telecom regulator.

This one is expected to come with a dual camera setup at the back, featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. The webpage does not reveal the specifications of the smartphone. The front has an 18:9 aspect ratio slim bezel display which is all the rage this year. The phone first came with Android Marshmallow, but can now be upgraded to Nougat. Apart from the improved display, Redmi 5 may see a major improvement on both hardware and software front as well. The "lite" label might have to do with the processor clock speed - the MSM8953 "lite" is said to be clocked at 1.8GHz instead of the standard Snapdragon 625.'s 2GHz clock speed. For example, Xiaomi Redmi 5 is supposed to be equipped with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB expandable storage. This can be expanded up to 128 GB via a microSD card. It will run on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system based company's own MIUI. But, surprisingly, the camera department may not see much difference compared to the Redmi 4. Also, rumour has it that the Remi 5 Plus will have a bigger 5.99-inch display and a bigger 4,000 mAh battery. The smartphone, a Flipkart-exclusive, is touted to be a battery-centric budget offering with smart multitasking capabilities.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 features a 5.5-inch HD display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 435 SoC, 13-megapixel camera with flash, and a 16-megapixel selfie camera.
