Redmi Note 5 Global vs Redmi note 5 pro

Search This thread
The indian version uses Sony sensors (the sames from the Mi A2 and Redmi note 6 Pro)
The rear may actually be worse as the Sony sensor is smaller, but the front 20 MP (5, it's pixel binned) is better than the omnivision one
And even that doesn't matter much cuz you can buy the sensor replacements on AliExpress
That's it, hope i helped :)

Please elaborate on this matter!
I'm interested in switching to a better sensor for my Redmi Note 8T. Not happy with samsung sg1 sensor. Other version of the same phone have Sony sensors on board and some newer board versions a baetter samsung sensor, sg2.
Thanks.

I'm sorry, but there are no variations of the redmi note 8(or t), they all use the same sgm1 and the 13MP omnivision as the front sensor
Hardware mod on the redmi note 5 is only possible because all the variations use the same board, only with different sensors so they all use the same connectors and software
TLDR, this is not how it works :/
