Xiaomi introduced Redmi Note 5 Pro in China. However, this is not the same phone that the company showed in India. The new variant of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (AI Dual Camera) has a brighter lens on the main camera, fast charging and Android Oreo to start. The price is great and the smartphone can go to Poland!
We already know Redmi Note 5 Pro
In mid-February Xiaomi showed in India a smartphone Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. This is quite a successful device (at least on paper), equipped with good components and interesting solutions. However, there were no shortcomings or defects. Many of them have just abolished the new variant of the phone.For some time we've known that Xiaomi is going to introduce Redmi Note 5 Pro for sale in home China. In fact, everyone expected that the same telephone will be available in the Middle Kingdom, which went to India. And here the surprise – Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 (AI Dual Camera) is better than the original !
What does Redmi Note 5 (AI Dual Camera) offer?
Changes in the cameras
Chinese Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro has several advantages over its Indian counterpart. The biggest one is the camera. We still get a dual camera in the 12 MP + 5 MP configuration, but this time the main camera has a brighter lens (f / 1.9 instead of f / 2.2) and a larger pixel size (1.4μm). Thanks to this, photographs taken in average or low light conditions should be better, which should additionally be ensured by artificial intelligence algorithms. Of course, a lot depends on the camera's software, but in this field Xiaomi is getting better and better, which I know from my experience. After upgrading to MIUI 9.2 my Xiaomi Mi 6 does a bit better photos, and it's a good sign.While the main camera has been improved, the selfie camera has lost several megapixels. Self-portraits fans can count on a 13-megapixel unit (instead of 20 MP).
USB type C and fast charging
Xiaomi is known for not worrying about the current versions of Android, putting primarily on updates under MIUI. Some love this approach, others hate it. In any case, now Xiaomi has tried exceptionally. The new Redmi Note 5 Pro works under the control of Android 8.0 Oreo .

Price Redmi Note 5 and availability in Poland
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be available in China from March 20, where it will be sold in the following variants and prices:
- 3 GB RAM, 32 GB memory: 1099 yuan (about 595 PLN net),
- 4 GB RAM, 64 GB memory: 1399 yuan (about 760 PLN net),
- 6 GB RAM, 64 GB of memory: 1699 yuan (about 920 PLN net).
Chinese Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first to appear in the 3 GB / 32 GB version, which gives me reason to suspect that it will be sold in Poland , not its Indian counterpart. This is what the report on the availability of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in Europe suggests. If this is true, then for the smartphone we will pay about 240 euros (some 1099 zlotys ) for the 3 GB / 32 GB variant and approx. 270 euros (probably 1299 zlotys ) for a model with 64 GB memory for files and most probably from 4 GB of RAM. It's really fair and competitive prices , so if they confirm, Redmi Note 5 can become a sales hit. The Chinese version does not support LTE B20, but Xiaomi has to add it in smartphones for Europe. Do not expect NFC – it was not there, it is not and it probably will not be. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/820326/xiaomi-redmi-note-5-pro-global-cena-w-europie/ Source: Xiaomi , FoneArena
