MIUI 9 has been a highly anticipated software update for MIUI devices. We were previously told which smartphones Xiaomi makes that would be receiving this update and since then we’ve watched as they have rolled it out to more and more devices. The Redmi Note 5 Pro and its other variants have received a lot of attention since launch, and a beta version of the MIUI Global ROM leaked back in March of this year. There’s no need to flash beta version of the OEM ROM anymore as Xiaomi has officially released the MIUI 9.5 Global ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro.
There’s been a lot of confusion surrounding the popular Redmi Note 5 series from Xiaomi, and rightly so. The company previously released the MIUI 9.5 Global Stable ROM for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in India (which is actually a rebranded version of the Redmi 5 Plus in China). The Redmi Note 5 Plus in China shouldn’t be confused with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in India since it actually has upgraded hardware specs. It doesn’t end there either. There is a slightly different variant of the Indian Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which is sold in China as the Redmi Note 5.
This is why you may have had this post confused with a previous article we wrote about the Redmi Note 5 in India receiving a stable Global ROM of MIUI 9.5 update. We’re looking at a similar software update here, though, with many bug fixes, quick search options, and much more. The team has yet to publish an official changelog in Xiaomi’s Mi forums and the thread has actually been taken down (as of writing this). However, you can find the official download page linked below, or you can grab the actual ROM files directly with the Recovery ROM right here and the Fastboot ROM right here.
