The Redmi Note 5 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro were launched together in February 2018. The Redmi Note 5 Pro alone sold 300,000 units in under 3 minutes right after launch. And from that time till now, both devices put together have sold over 5 million units. There is a reason why the Note5 Pro is selling like hot cake.
But first, note that the device has two variants, based on different RAM, as follows: 4GB RAM and 6GB.
Now, consider that there is a big, solid 5.99-inch FullView Display, 4G LTE, 64 GB internal storage, Snapdragon 636 processor, rear dual camera, rear fingerprint scanner, and a beefy 4000mAh battery with QuickCharge 2.0 in the mix. All of these for $155/$218, depending on the memory configuration you go for. Simply put, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro Android smartphone is a steal.
On the software end of things, the phone launched with Android 7.1.2 Nougat but a software upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo has been rolling out since June.
