At its first launch event of the year, Xiaomi brought the much-awaited Mi TV4 to India. While that stole the show for the most part, the company also announced the Redmi Note 5 as well as the Redmi Note 5 pro. At a glance, the two phones may look the same from the front, but internally there are a lot of differences. Pricing is the key here with prices starting at Rs. 9,999 and Rs.13,999 respectively for the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro. These phones offer the best value for your money. While most of us have been talking about the performance and the hardware specification of the two phones lately, the design and build of the phone have taken a backseat. Hence, via these pictures, we are taking a good look at the design and build of the two phones.

The biggest visible change in the new phones is the display. The 5.99-inch 2160 x 1080p panel feature thinner bezels and rounded corners. The Android navigation keys are now on-screen and the display looks aesthetically pleasing.

Although, compared to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, the display on the two phones still looks inferior. Moreover, both phones have a spacious top and bottom chins, which makes the phones quite tall.

Both phones pack a 4000mAh battery and are 8.1mm thick and are little on the heavier side of about 180 grams. However, there is a camera bump on both the devices, and on the Note 5 Pro it does not look particularly good.

At the bottom, you have the speaker and the standard micro USB port. The speaker is decently loud and we are not that happy about the micro USB port. Xiaomi could have easily introduced a type-C port to the Redmi series with these phones.

Both phones also feature a much-loved feature by Mi fans, the IR blaster.

At the back, you have the camera and the fingerprint scanner. Both phones still feature a metal back with plastic inserts on top and bottom and do not look quite as upmarket as the Xiaomi Mi A1.
