Redmi Note 5 update: Android Oreo released as MIUI 9.5.17, MIUI 10 beta 8.7.12 download available too

Redmi Note 5 Android Oreo

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is without a doubt one of the best budget phones on the market. The phone succeeds the highly successful Redmi Note 4 from 2017, which means you are still getting an equally impressive piece of hardware at an affordable price tag.

Despite the huge promise, the Redmi Note 5 is unfortunate that it still carries the Xiaomi brand that hasn’t made a name for itself because of software updates. But if you are still interested to know all about Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Android 8.0 Oreo update, this page has everything you need, including any other software updates info for the budget phone.

It’s worth noting that the Redmi Note 5 is a rebranded Redmi 5 Plus that was released in China late last year. As such, we may refer to older posts in our database, so don’t be surprised if you end up on a Redmi 5 Plus page.

With that out of the way, let’s dive right into it.
