Specification

The Redmi Note 5 Pro is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, Adrena 509 GPU. The 636 processor comes with the same Kryo technology, which has only been seen on the flagship 800 series so far. Xiaomi is claiming a must faster performance on the Redmi Note 5 Pro with this new chip. In terms of RAM and storage, this is also the first Redmi Note phone to come in 6GB RAM option. The base variant is 4GB RAM with 64GB storage, while the higher one has 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. The storage is expandable to 128GB via a microSD card and Xiaomi has gone again for a dual hybrid SIM slot with this one. Redmi Note 5 Pro will also get some newer features like Face Recognition to unlock the phone from the front camera. This will be rolled out later as part of an OTA update in March, says Xiaomi.

Both smartphones, Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, come with the same 5.99-inches display with ultra-thin bezels on the side, 18:9 aspect ratio and onscreen buttons. The display resolution for both is 2160×1080 pixels which is full HD+ and comes to 403 ppi in terms density.
