Just ahead of its launch on August 21, a new rumor surrounding the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A has appeared online which claims that it will allow you to use dual SIM cards without having to sacrifice any of them for a microSD card.
Yes, that’s right. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A will apparently come with 3 slots — two for SIM cards and one for the microSD card. The leak has appeared on Weibo including the above image.
At this point, however, we can’t confirm the authenticity of this leak. If true, it would be a great addition for folks who want to use two SIM cards without losing the option to add a microSD card if needed.
As for the specs, the Redmi Note 5 will feature a 5.5-inch HD display at the front with the Snapdragon 425 SoC powering the device. There will be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage which is further expandable.
A 13MP rear camera and 5MP sensor at the front are said to take care of the imaging department of the phone. When it comes to battery, the Android 7.1.1 Nougat (MIUI 9) powered device will draw fuel from a 3,000mAh battery.
