Redmi Note 5

After all the speculations, Xiaomi has finally launched their blockbuster device Redmi Note 5 in their home market, China. Firstly, the phone looks just like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, that was launched in India. But there are some key differences with the device that they launched in China, which is mainly the cameras.

Yes, the main difference is the cameras with Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. The Redmi Note 5 that Xiaomi launched in China features a 12MP f/1.9 sensor (primary), rather than the f/2.2 12MP one found in the Indian variant. The rear camera also features dual PD dual-core speed focus for fast autofocus. The secondary sensor on the back is the same though, the same 5MP one.

The front camera is also different in this. While the Indian version comes with a 20MP front camera, the Chinese RN5 ships with a 13MP one. The front shooter also supports portraits like in the Indian version, but here it’s dubbed AI portraits, we’re not sure if there is any big changes in the algorithm used in that and our version.

Next major change is the software the phone ships with. Redmi Note 5 ships with MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo 8.1. It also comes with Project Treble support. It also comes with the gesture support out of the box (much like the iPhone X gestures).
