Xiaomi is a company known for making a lot of confusion with its smartphones’ names. The device which is known in China and in the global market as the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus has been launched in India with the name Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. The Indian Redmi Note 5 (so the re-branded Redmi 5 Plus and not the Redmi Note 5 Pro with dual cameras) has just received the official update to MIUI 9.5 Global.
The rollout comes right after the Redmi Note 4 series was updated to MIUI 9.5 and it brings the version number to 188.8.131.52.NEGMIFA. If you own an Indian Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, you can flash the update via recovery by downloading a firmware which weighs 1.4 GB or via fastboot mode with a firmware which weighs 2 GB. As you may have understood from the huge size of the update, MIUI 9.5 has a very rich changelog.
It contains several new features and bug fixes. Among the most important changes, there is an improved notifications system with quick replies, quick gestures to expand the notifications menu and bundled notifications.
