Xiaomi has finally launched their Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. This is the global launch of the device and also the global premiere of the Snapdragon 636 chipset. The phone comes with a 5.99 inch Full Screen Display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and FHD+ resolution
The phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. This is the first time ever that the chipset is being used in a phone. It comes with the infamous Kryo cores, which were used in Snapdragon flagship chipsets only. Additionally, the device is labelled as the fastest Redmi note ever.
As we expected, the 5.99 inch FHD+ display comes with 2.5D Curved glass. The phone runs on Android Nougat with MIUI on top. The device has dual-sim capability and expandable storage through the MicroSD card slot.
Jumping to the optics, the Redmi Note 5 sports a dual camera setup on the rear, which is a 12MP+5MP setup. The 12MP primary camera has an aperture of f/2.2 while the secondary rear camera comes with an aperture of f/2.0. The dual camera setup is aided by an LED Flash module.
Xiaomi has changed things up a bit on the selfie side. The older Redmi Note phones came with below average front cameras. Xiaomi has given the selfie shooter a massive upgrade. The front cam sports a 20MP sensor, which was also seen in the Vivo V5. The Sony IMX376 sensor is aided by a selfie light. Furthermore, Xiaomi has added the Beautify 4.0 technology which enhances your selfies. Notably, both Front and Rear cameras support bokeh mode.
The device has two variants- one with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of Storage and one with 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. The variants will be priced at 13,999 and 16,999 respectively. The phone will be available as a Flipkart Exclusive and on offline stores from February 22. Jio will be giving Rs.2200 of cashback and 100 percent additional data for customers.
