Last week, Xiaomi finally started rolling out the MIUI 9.5 update for the Redmi Note 5 Pro based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Apart from bringing the May security patch, the latest version of Android and the improvement it brings, MIUI 9.5 also comes with its own share of enhancements and improvements.

Like with other budget devices launched by Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro also feature an IR blaster at the top. In fact, Xiaomi is now the only OEM in the budget space that continues to include an IR blaster on its devices.
