Is this the PRO or normal version?
I think there's something wrong with many SKUs on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 phones you have in stock.

The Redmi note 5 is supposed to have a Snapdragon 625 processor, and the Redmi note 5 PRO should have a Snapdragon 636 processor.

This one is shown as the Redmi note 5(not PRO) but it says it has a Snapdragon 636 processor.

So, at the end I'm not sure if this is the normal or the PRO version, who can help clarify this? Same happens with all other SKUs of Xiaomi Redmi note 5 you have.

Thanks in advance.

There seem to be a rather confusing range of models. As far as I know the name “Redmi Note 5 PRO” is only used for the Indian market. So this is the one with the Snapdragon 836.


There is also the 5A which has the 625 (on xiaomiglobal) and the “prime” (on the mi page)...

@moosgummi, thanks for the info.

I still think there's a mistake in the description for most SKU related to Redmi note 5 here.

For example, the 3GB RAM version(SKU: 9642688) should only come with Snapdragon 625, but here it also shows it comes with Snapdragon 636.

I found that model elsewhere as well. 3GB RAM/32GB/Snapdragon 636.
I only saw the Snapdragon 625 version as Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus

@Moosgummi thanks for clarifying!!! Indeed, it seems there's two Batches, one released for the Indian market, known as PRO, and other for the Chinese market, know as Redmi note 5 only.....

Chinese Batch only comes with Snapdragon 636 and Adreno 509....so specs on this website are theoretically accurate...
