Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 MIUI 9.5 Global ROM now rolling out in India

Xiaomi announced the global version of MIUI 9 back in November. The company began rolling-out the MIUI 9 Global Stable update to its devices in the same month, starting with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Snapdragon variant. In January, the company released the MIUI 9.2 update for supported devices with new Mi Video and Mi Drop apps. Then, a few weeks ago, Xiaomi India Managing Director Manu Kumar Jain stated that the MIUI 9 update was now available for all supported Xiaomi India smartphones, going all the way to nearly four-year-old devices such as the Xiaomi Redmi 1s and the Mi 3.

Last week, Xiaomi started rolling-out the MIUI 9.5 Global Stable update to the Redmi Note 4X (which is the Qualcomm Snapdragon variant of the Redmi Note 4), the Redmi Note 3 Qualcomm Snapdragon variant, the Xiaomi Mi Max and Mi Max Prime. The MIUI 9.5 Global Stable update is an important update as it finally brings notifications in MIUI in line with stock Android for Android 7.0+ devices. It brings features such as in-line replies, one-finger gesture to expand notifications, and bundled notifications.

Now, the company has released the MIUI 9.5 Global Stable ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in India. As a reminder, the Redmi Note 5 in India is a re-brand of the Redmi 5 Plus in China. It should not be confused with the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India, which has upgraded specifications. To add even more confusion, a slightly different variant of the Indian Redmi Note 5 Pro is sold as the Redmi Note 5 in China.

The Indian Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has a decent list of specifications including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 system-on-chip, 3GB/4GB of RAM paired with 32GB/64GB of storage, 6-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) 18:9 IPS display, 12MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and a 4000mAh battery. The phone is powered by MIUI 9 on top of Android 7.1 Nougat. Details about an Android Oreo update haven’t been revealed yet.

The MIUI 9.5.3.0.NEGMIFA update for the Indian Redmi Note 5 brings many bug fixes, an optimized browser kernel, sound recording options for the screen recorder app, quick search options, revamped start page, the option to resume interrupted transfers in the Mi Mover app without starting over, and more.
