Trending Smartphones From Last Week: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Oppo Find X, Galaxy J6 And More

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note line-up of smartphones has been hugely successful in India. The latest member of the series is the Redmi Note 5 (also available as Redmi 5 Plus in China), which was launched earlier this year (alongside the Redmi Note 5 Pro).

Even though the smartphone offers solid specs for the money, it launched running a now dated Android 7.1.2 Nougat out-of-the-box. That’s finally changed, as Redmi Note 5 is finally receiving stable Android 8.1 Oreo update. Spotted by XDA-Developers, the stable Android 8.1 Oreo recovery ROM is now available for the smartphone. This is the global build that also bumps MIUI to version number 9.6.5.5.0.
