Xiaomi introduced two new models in the Redmi Note series today, with the Redmi Note 5 taking over from last year’s Redmi Note 4 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro aimed at enthusiast users. After overtaking Samsung to become the largest smartphone vendor in the country, Xiaomi is now looking to consolidate its position at the top.

The Redmi Note 5 shares the same hardware as its predecessor, with the main difference being the 18:9 display at the front. The Redmi Note 5 Pro, meanwhile, introduces a lot of firsts for the series — it is the first phone to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 platform, the first with a dual rear camera configuration, and the first to feature a 20MP selfie camera. It’s time to see how the new arrivals stack up against the Redmi Note 4.
