Redmi Note 5pro launched in India in mid-February. This device was running on the Android Nougat 7.1 which is too old because Google just released Android P for a developer. Xiaomi is running 2 years behind from google.
Redmi note 5 pro is great value for money and provides great features including dual camera, great performance, and display but the only bummer was it runs on 2-year-old Android 7.1, We have seen one leak that Redmi note 5 Pro Chinese version was running on the Android 8.1 and also Chinese version of the device was launched with the Android 8.1 so there is method using that you can install Android oreo in Indian variant of Redmi note 5 pro.
This Android 8.1 Oreo build comes courtesy of FunkyHuawei.club, an online service which allows users to update, unbrick, or rebrand Huawei and Honor phones. They ask for a fee to do this stuff. They created a thread about how to port Android Oreo in Mi Mix2 and just like that they have a method to install Android 8.1 on Redmi Note 5 Pro.
