The mid-range Redmi Note 5 Pro has a longish form factor with an elongated display. More on that later. Out of the box, the Redmi Note 5 Pro will also run Android 7 Nougat with MIUI 9 on top. The Redmi Note 5 will sport a 5.65 inch Full HD + Display and rear fingerprint scanner just below the expected vertical dual camera setup.
