We were able to discover the borderless design of Mi Mix 2. Nevertheless, the Chinese manufacturer seems to want to democratize this mode by offering more affordable smartphones with screens with fine borders. Published photos on the canvas suggest that the Redmi 5 Plus will be borderless, let’s see what it’s all about.
Two new real photos of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, coming directly from Chinese social networks, have just appeared on the web. Both shots highlight the sublime borderless screen of its astonishingly fine borders. With such a design, Xiaomi intends to democratize the borderless fashion.
More and more manufacturers are equipping their smartphones with borderless screens. However, this remains mainly limited to flagships with a few exceptions. We were able to test the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 which until now is the only smartphone of the Chinese manufacturer to adopt this design. Nevertheless, according to GizmoChina, he will be quickly joined by another more affordable smartphone, the Redmi 5 Plus.
Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus: pictures unveil its borderless design
While we were able to read the datasheet of the Redmi Note 5, two other devices are in preparation and will probably be presented before, they are the Redmi 5 and 5 Plus. One of the variants is shown on the canvas and reveals a large part of its design. We can see a screen with thin borders, but not as impressive as the Mi Mix 2. The lower and upper borders are relatively prominent at first glance and hide speakers. We can also deduce the ratio that seems to be in 18: 9.
A 5.7-inch screen with a definition of 1440 x 720 pixels is expected, while the SoC will be a Snapdragon 450. A dual 13 MP photosensor is also mentioned and the manufacturer would take the opportunity to offer the Quick Charge from Qualcomm, Quick Charge 3.0. Regarding the rates, the Redmi 5 is expected from 90 euros and the Redmi 5 Plus from 115 euros for the version with 3 GB of RAM and 130 euros for the version with 4 GB of RAM. It is expected that these smartphones will be presented later this month. As usual, tweezers are de rigueur pending official confirmation from Xiaomi opening his first shop in Europe.
This is not the first time that the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus makes a remarkable appearance on the internet. However, this is the first time ever that we have a real preview, under normal conditions, of its borderless screen. To tell the truth, there are not so many mysteries to clarify about the palette. In July 2017, its complete data sheet leaked on the net, suggesting a large format variation of the most attractive Redmi 5, and for an affordable price. As announced, Xiaomi is therefore launched body and soul in the borderless and will offer a wide range of mobile devices with a screen board.

As can be seen in the two photographs at the end of the article, the main advantage of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is its borderless screen. At the latest news, the phablet will be equipped with a giant screen of 5.9 inches full HD + 2160 x 1080. The frame of the Redmi 5 Plus would be made of metal, to emphasize its premium orientation. The Chinese source also confirms part of the datasheet of the phone as 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. We also mention the presence of a 12MP photosensor and a fingerprint sensor, located on the back side. Price aside, it should not exceed 200 €!
As a reminder, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Note will be announced on November 11, 2017, by the Chinese brand. The company should not delay communicating about this event. No doubt that in the coming days we will know more about this new range and the differences between the 3 models.
