India’s camera beast a.k.a Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched in India during the last month packing the Snapdragon 636 Kyro CPU, a 21MP Selfie camera and a Dual Camera Setup on the rear. This month, the company decided to unveil the smartphone in their homeland, with some differences in both cameras.
The Redmi Note 5 – as it is called in China went on sale today, and as expected it didn’t take too long to have all units sold out. One of the main differences brought by the Chinese variant is the presence of an updated build of Android 8.1 Oreo just out the box, while the Indian model came with the already old Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
Thankfully, a courageous user from XDA’s Forums, called Ripal, managed to flash the Chinese software in the Indian variant and for everyone’s surprise, it not only brought the latest Google Cookie to the Note 5 but also introduced the support for Project Treble.
