The phone with the lower-end processor from Qualcomm will come with 3GB of RAM, while the higher-end model will feature 4GB of RAM. Both variants offer 32GB and 64GB storage configurations.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 will come with a 5-inch full HD display, and a massive 3,680mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. According to the leak, the device will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with the MIUI 9 overlay. It will also come with a 16MP rear camera, and a 5MP front-facing one. For expandability in terms of storage, you're getting a microSD slot, however, it does not state the maximum capacity supported.
