Users get to test the latest version of Android, the Android 9.0 Pie before its released to the public. There's no exact release date, but the above-mentioned devices should get it before the end of Q1 of this year.

Android Pie update for Redmi Note 5 Pro?

Redmi Note 5 is the global version of the Redmi Note 5 Pro. The same device which was launched in India earlier this year. On the other hand, Redmi 6 Pro is the latest low budget offering from the OEM. There's no mention of Redmi Note 5 Pro, its Indian counterpart. The company only provides one major Android Update, and that has already been given to the Redmi Note 5 Pro users with Android 8.1 Oreo update.
