Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro preview: Possibly the best budget phone of 2018
Xiaomi played it safe with the Redmi Note 5, offering the same chipset and a design aesthetic that's similar to the Redmi Note 4. Instead, the manufacturer is rolling out the Redmi Note 5 Pro for those looking to upgrade from last year's device. The Redmi Note 5 Pro is the first device to be powered by the Snapdragon 636. Xiaomi says that it worked closely with Qualcomm over the development of the chipset, leading to a noticeable uptick in performance over the Snapdragon 625-powered Redmi Note 5. The phone also features a dual rear camera setup, as well as a 20MP front camera with an LED flash module.
