Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi
has started rolling out in India the MIUI 9.5 update
for the Redmi Note 5
smartphone. The new operating system update is still based on Google’s Android Nougat operating system, but with some major improvements and customisation.
The MIUI 9.5 is currently rolling out as an over-the-air (OTA) update, and the Redmi Note 5
users can download and install it through the software update option available in the phone’s settings menu. The OTA version installs the update files without deleting the phone’s content and settings. However, for advance users who want to fresh install the MIUI 9.5 ROM, the full update file is also available and can be downloaded from the official MI forum. You can install it using the fastboot ROM flash option. In fresh install, however, the phone’s storage would be wiped out, so it is advised that you take a full back-up before installing.
