What is the Redmi Note 5 Pro

Xiaomi officially launches the Redmi Note 5 (Pro)

After yesterday's leak almost all of the specifications for the two new Xiaomi models, the manufacturer officially unveiled the two smartphones in India today. Only the price was not known yesterday, which changed with today's presentation.

Both smartphones are now available from Flipkart and Mi.com. The probably more interesting device, the Redmi Note 5 Pro, is a brand new model with a 5.99 inch HD + -18: 9 display, Snapdragon 636, dual camera, 20 MP selfie camera, Face Unlock, 4/6 GB RAM and 64 GB main memory. It should cost the equivalent of around 176 euros for market launch.

The normal Redmi Note 5 is an old friend. Because the model is “only” a rebranding of the Redmi 5 Plus, especially for the Indian market. As a result, it also has the almost 6-inch 18: 9 display with HD + resolution, a slightly weaker Snapdragon 625, a single 12 MP camera on the back, a weak 5 MP camera on the front, optionally 3 or 4 GB of RAM as well as 32 or 64 GB main memory. The price is the equivalent of around 125 euros.

Neither of the two devices supports Fast Charge or USB C (they rely on micro USB). In addition, the Asian version does not offer the LTE band 20 used in Germany. The battery has a capacity of almost 4,000 mAh. The smartphones are delivered with Xiaomi's own MIUI 9 interface, which was set up on Android 7.0 Nougat. Black, gold, rose gold and blue are available as color variants.

A C64 marked my entry into the world of PCs. I spent my student internship in the repair department of a computer shop, at the end I was allowed to assemble a 486 PC myself from “workshop leftovers”. As a result, I later began studying computer science at the Humboldt University in Berlin, adding psychology. After my first job as a research assistant at university, I went to London for a year and worked for Sega on quality assurance for computer game translations, including games such as Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and Company of Heroes. I've been writing for Notebookcheck since 2017.
