The PPI count on a 18:9 5.7" 720p display is the same as the PPI count on a 16:9 5.2" 720p display.

Redmi Note 5 Pro specs?

- Snapdragon 636
- 5.99" 18:9 display
- Dual Camera
- 3GB+32GB onwards
- Likely to start from RMB1099, but slightly higher possibility for RMB1299 onwards

It's being rumored that the Snapdragon 636 will be exclusive to Xiaomi for three months, other phone makers can only use it from Feb 2018 onwards. This is same for the Snapdragon 660, which was also said that it was exclusive to OPPO for three months.

Redmi Note 5 Pro will likely feature a smaller battery than Redmi Note 4X, which will mean it's lighter than the 4X. This make sense as the 5 Pro is targeted to the offline market.

The regular Redmi Note 5 will come with 4000mAh battery still, and likely featuring a 5.7" 16:9 Full HD display.

seen that they said 636 is like a mini upgrade to 630 but better efficiency and power, but still wonder as compare to 660?

OT: iphone user posting xiaomi phone XD

Xiaomi Phones below RMB 1500 will not come with SD660, or else it will cannibalize the sales of Mi Note 3.

It's being rumored that there will be two variants of Redmi Note 5, being the standard Redmi Note 5 and enhanced Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Redmi Note 5 will come with a standard 16:9 5.5" display, with dual camera on its rear.
Redmi Note 5 Pro will come with a full screen 18:9 6" display, similar to Mi MIX 2.
Previously Mi Max with SD650 is below rmb 1500 anyway.

taller display/screen, but with same capacity battery, same 14nm finfet CPU, means shorter SoT, compared to Note 4/4x.

maybe lower resolution to compensate?

anyway its a good move, with recent success in the india market. while sd660 is rare & expensive, sd636 is just nice for those bored with sd625.
not bad since it gives 40% extra performance.

battery endurance top spot still goes to lenovo p2 (dying model, no p3),mi max 2, redmi note 4x.

my $$$ on mi max 2, wait till neck long oredi, for the kernel sources & custom roms.

not gonna repeat the wait for note 5

The SD636 can be seen as a lite version of SD660, as it features the same custom Kryo 260 CPU as the SD660 albeit at a lower clock speed(SD660: 2.2GHz, SD636: 1.8GHz).

It make sense for the Redmi Note 5 Pro to come with the SD636, as the SD636 is able to support FHD+ 18:9 display and dual camera. The possibility of SD660 for the Redmi series is very low.
