We know that Xiaomi is prepping to launch a slew of budget smartphones including the Redmi Note 5. These upcoming Redmi smartphones have been appearing in leaks and rumors regularly giving us an idea of what to expect from them.
Following the success of the Redmi Note 4 series of smartphones, it looks like Xiaomi is all set to unveil the Redmi Note 5 lineup to cash in on the success. Now, an image of the alleged Redmi Note 5 has been leaked online by PicsPlz (Via: GizmoChina).

The leaked image is not the final one and it is just the rear view of what appears to be the Redmi Note 5. The design language remains to be seen as the device seems to be encased in a protective casing. This case has covered the Mi logo making us doubt if this is really a Xiaomi smartphone.
While the dual camera setup is seen, there are speculations pointing out that the primary sensor will be a 16MP unit and the secondary sensor will be a 5MP unit. Apart from these, none of the other camera details of the alleged Redmi Note 5 are known for now. One thing that we can figure out is that this image might not be that of the Redmi Note 5A as the device will be an entry-level one and a dual camera setup is most unlikely.
However, we cannot assure that this leaked image is authentic. Until there is an official confirmation from Xiaomi regarding the same, we need to consider this as a dose of skepticism.
