Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Full Specs, Price and Alternative Smartphones

Moving on in the year 2018, Xiaomi ushered in the month of February with the announcement of their latest 6.0″ flagship devices, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. You know what that means?? Top-level functionality coupled into smart and sleek designs.

The Redmi Note 5’s base version is no doubt less sophisticated, considering the fact that it comes with a 5MP selfie camera with f/2.2 aperture and a few other shortcomings. These devices however, are both preceded by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Note 4X which were in released in early 2017.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 twins were both 5.5″ devices sporting Hybrid sim slots, Android 6 out of the box but has the upgrade to Android 7 available, 13MP rear cam and 5MP selfie cam, 4100mAh battery and Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chip set which includes a Cortex-A53 CPU with 8 cores and 2.0GHz.

Their only difference (which I consider irrelevant) is the 16/32GB internal storage, almost invincible. What I feel however is that upgrade to Android 8 might be available for the Redmi 5 twins since their predecessors got their own upgrades.

Quickly, let’s have a look at the Redmi Note 5 pro full specifications, and you can check the Redmi Note 5 full specs here
