Xiaomi is likely to introduce MIUI 9.5 update, based on Android Oreo, to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. This was announced by the company's MIUI India Twitter account, that confirmed the rollout through a poster. The Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched in India with MIUI 9, based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
As part of the tweet, MIUI India said, "MI fans! You asked for it, and we're getting it for you. Redmi Note 5 Pro users will start getting the MIUI 9.5 update in phases, starting Friday, 29th June! If you are not part of 1st phase, don't worry! You will get it in sometime soon." Xiaomi's Redmi Note 5 Pro can be expected to receive the MIUI 9.5.6, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The Xiaomi users who have installed MIUI 9.2.7 to their Redmi Note 5 Pro phones will receive the update from June 29, while others can be expected to wait for the update.
The MIUI 9.5 Global ROM was initially rolled out in March, but was pulled back after developers spotted vulnerabilities. Eventually, the stable Global ROM was introduced earlier this month, that is being offered to more and more Xiaomi devices. Redmi Note 5 Pro users can expect this to show as an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade.
