Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro specifications and features
Launched about a month ago, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro share a 5.99-inch display with a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. However, the two run different processors. The Redmi Note 5 is powered by Snapdragon 625 SoC, whereas the Redmi Note 5 Pro gets a more powerful Snapdragon 636 chipset.
In terms of optics, the Redmi Note 5 features a single rear camera setup with 12-megapixel rear shooter and a 5-megapixel front camera. However, if you’re looking for a higher camera setup then the Redmi Note 5 Pro features a dual camera setup on the rear with a primary 12-megapixel sensor and a secondary 5-megapixel sensor for capturing shallow depth of field. It also gets a much better 20-megapixel selfie camera with dedicated flash and support for face unlock feature.
Both the phones run MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat and pack a beefy 4,000mAh battery.
