It’s been reported that there will be a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. There is no word on battery capacity yet. Also, both devices will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with MIUI 9 on top.

On the other hand, Redmi Note 5A Pro will come in Octa-Core Snapdragon chipset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage.
