The cameras on this device are also pretty good, the front camera is a 8 MP shooter and on te rear side, we have Dual camera setup where the primary camera is a 13 MP shooter and the secondary camera is a 5 MP shooter for depth sensing. The rear camera setup is quite similar to that of the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

  1. The fact that note 5 pro have more pixels at front camera doesn't matter at all 🙄 and add the fact about 6gb variant
