Xiaomi will also showcase many devices at Mobile World Congress, highlighting the Redmi Note 5 Pro among others. The phablet model had already been announced in the middle of the month.
With the Redmi Note 5 Pro Xiaomi presents – as the name suggests – the better version of the new Note 5 family, which has some good hardware specifications for a reasonable price – in the only single market in India, the device costs about the same 200 euros. For the first time, the Snapdragon 636 processor is installed here in the Pro model, which together with up to 6 GB of RAM in benchmarks ensures decent performance in this price class.
For the display, Xiaomi follows the industry standard and relies on a display in 18: 9 format with rounded corners. At 5.99 inches, a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels is achieved using IPS technology. At the front there is also another main feature: Xiaomi installed a 20-megapixel camera with LED flash. The cameras on the back combine a 12 MP Sony IMX486 with a Samsung 5-MP sensor. In the middle, there is also the fingerprint sensor.
