Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro with Snapdragon 636, 6GB RAM, 20MP Selfie Camera Announced


Redmi Note 5 Pro

Following the announcement of the Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi also launched an upgraded model of the device dubbed Redmi Note 5 Pro. They look identical in build and design (though the camera at the back has been reshuffled), and some of the specs are the same, but this is powered by the “new” more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset and not Snapdragon 625 as seen on the former. The new chipset brings Bluetooth 5 along.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro also comes with up to 6GB of RAM for smooth multitasking. The inbuilt storage, however, remains capped at 64GB. Another major difference is in their photography tools. The new Redmi Note 5 Pro sports dual rear-facing camera not one, and the front camera have been significantly upgraded from the mere 5MP on the Redmi Note 5 to 20MP on the Redmi Note 5 Pro with A.I tech built into the camera for smart portrait shot.

Apart from these changes, other specs remains the same. It is worth mentioning that the Redmi Note 5 Pro runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat and not Android 8.0 Oreo, but it does have Xiaomi’s latest MIUI 9.2 UX on top. Xiaomi promised to roll out face unlock feature for the device next month.
