Looks like Xiaomi still has plans to launch the Redmi Note 5, after all. Chinese news website MyDrivers claims that Xiaomi has evidently pushed the release date of the Redmi Note 5 to the second quarter of 2018. The report said the Chinese company is waiting for Qualcomm to release the Snapdragon 632 mobile processor, a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 636 that was announced way back in October last year.

The upcoming mobile chip is expected to clock a slightly lower speed, as well as a lower-clocked GPU. However, the Snapdragon 632 is expected to retain the 14-bit Qualcomm Spectra 160 image signal processor (ISP), which supports dual-camera focal adjustments and improved low-light enhancements.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has been one of the most anticipated smartphones to launch in the market and many details about the phone is already known. But last month a “Super Moderator” on MIUI forum had claimed that claimed that Xiaomi has decided to drop the “Note” line from its budget offerings. In fact, it was revealed that the Redmi 5 Plus will replace the Redmi Note 5, its latest mid-end phone with the 18:9 aspect ratio and a Snapdragon 625 processor.
