Redmi Note 5 Pro: Specifications, Features
Specifications wise, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is truly a beast as it boasts of a class-leading spec sheet. Starting with the design, which is a refinement of the premium-feeling unibody metallic build of the Redmi Note 4 only this time, it comes with an extra tall 18:9 5.99 inch IPS LCD display at the front with a FHD+ resolution of 2160×1080. Under the hood is the dependable Snapdragon 636 octa-core chipset which is clocked at 1.8GHz. The phone comes with 64GB of internal storage coupled with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and also has support for storage expansion via microSD cards of up to 256GB. The standard version of Note 5, on the other hand, comes starts with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and runs on a lower speced Snapdragon 625 chipset.
On the imaging front, the phone packs in a Dual 12 MP (f/2.2) + 5 MP (f/2.0) camera setup at the back with bokeh mode capabilities. On the front is an impressive 20MP camera, also with an LED flash and capable of 1080p videos at 30fps. The phone ships with Android Nougat 7.1.2 out of the box although the company has already pushed a stable Oreo update under MIUI 9.5 for the device, so you will be getting the bump to Oreo 8.1 as soon as you setup the device. Powering all this is a massive 4000mAh battery that’s bound to last you more than a day easily even with the heaviest of usage. It also has support for Quick Charge 2.0, so battery charging times would not be an issue. Our only gripe with the Note 5 Pro is that it still comes with a micro USB port instead of a USB Type-C port.
