Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is Coming To Pakistan

Xiaomi’s budget and feature-rich Redmi series is the company’s best selling range which delivers bang-for-buck devices and is quite popular in the mid-range market.

Among this series, is the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which was initially released in India alongside Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (Redmi 5 Plus in Pakistan). It’s finally coming to Pakistan and will soon be available for purchase online on Xiaomi’s official Mistore.pk

Design and Display

Note 5 pro in different colors

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with an 18:9 near bezel-less display featuring a 5.99-inch IPS LCD panel which has a resolution of 1080 x 2160 p. It has a protective layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, however, Xiaomi has not disclosed the version used in the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The design appeal is quite similar to its sibling, Redmi 5 Plus – minimal and classy. The first noticeable difference between the two is the camera set up – Redmi Note 5 Pro has a vertically aligned dual-cam setup. Both have fingerprint sensors mounted on the rear.

Hardware and Storage

Much like it’s competitors in the midrange segment, Redmi Note 5 Pro is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 clocked at 1.8 GHz. The GPU is a mid-tier Adreno 509. It is expected to come in two variants – 3 GB and 4 GB paired with 32 GB and 64 GB internal storage respectively

MicroSD slot is available and allows memory expansion up to 128 GB (uses SIM slot 2).

Camera and Software

A familiar dual-cam set up runs the show – 12 MP paired with 5 MP depth-sensor. It should be noted that Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first Redmi phone in the series to have a dual-cam setup. Rear photography features are simple, PDAF and LED flash is available. The front cam, on the other hand, is an impressive 13 MP unit with an LED flash as well.

Redmi Note 5 Pro will come with Android Oreo paired with a proprietary layer of MIUI 9 on top. It will get the latest update to MIUI 9.5 and is included within Xiaomi’s list of 30 phones that are getting the update.

Battery, Price, and Availability

The battery capacity is 4,000 mAh chargeable via microUSB 2.0. There is no Type-C support but still, fast-charging is available. Color options are Blue, Black, and Gold.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro’s price in Pakistan has not been revealed as of yet, however, seeing past trends and international prices it should be priced somewhere around Rs. 20,000 for 3/32 GB and Rs. 25,000 for the 4/64 GB variant. A 6 GB variant might eventually become available and will surely be priced close to Rs. 30,000.

  • It’s kind of joke with Pakistani.
    Note 5 Pro launched in India having 20MP Front Camera
    In Pakistan 13MP & No AI Technology & Face Unlock Option

    • Ignorance is not always a bliss my friend.
      Note 5 pro was made in India and basically was for indian market only. While china variant is a global variant. And my friend higher MPs doesn’t mean better camera. China variant has better rear camera due to better aperture and frame rate. Indian version has android nougat but chinese variant has android oreo out of the box (this article is misleading) means project treble support which is not the case in indian version. AI technology is available in chinese variant along side fast charging. And it doesn’t matter 20 or 13 MP front camera as long as aperture is same.

  • Its sad to know that Note 5 pro introduced here is of inferior specs.I recommend not buying it. Just like every other manufacture who does not respect Pakistanis.
    So called Pak China friendship lol . Not only here but if you look China always dump their scrap and garbage to Pakistan..

    • because they know illetrate people here will still going to buy whatever crap they bring into our market

    • Indians are crying that xiaomi cheated them and launch inferior quality phone in india. But here you are crying for no reason. There is no inferiority in chinese variant except 13 mp front cam (trust me, its not a big difference) but rear cam is much better in chinese version. Chinese version also has android oreo out of the box instead of nougat like indian version. This means chinese version has project treble support.

      Indian version is made in india and for indian market only. Rest of the world will get chinese version as global variant.

    • Hahaha.

      Funny. You know nothing. Pakistan will get better version of note 5 pro.

  • Specifications list most specs are Wrong
    It has micro usb 3.0 not 2.0 these are indian specs not Gobel in pakistan Gobel/chinese version will come.
    Primary: 12 MP f/2.2 is Indian we will get 12 MP f/1.9
    Oreo out of the Box

    if your pricing is right then it will sold out in few mins this will be best budget phone in market snapdragon 636 new and best processor for gaming and performance and whose who are saying indian version is better just think one think Mi is chinese brand will they sold better device to indian or their own country back camera with 1.9 aperture indian 2.2 which is not good for low lighting the only think is front cam that too have AI software which improves picture quality in low lighting 20 Mp sounds great so that mean it will beat S9 front 8mp very easily NEVER in the end this phone is best in this price range especially when you compare with huawei phones which did not have fast charger average battery life and average processor HiSilicon Kirin 659 which use in every huawei mid range phones Honor 7x Honor 9 lite Huawei P smart and mate 10 lite which is not good for high graphics games
    Hope fully
    i will buy inshallah
