We are facing a beast! Redmire Xiaomi Note Pro 5 is undoubtedly the best smartphone in the Redmi series, with a SoC never used before, a double rear camera and a camera dedicated to high quality selfies. What if I told you that it is possible to activate video recording in 4K resolution? What it would not be possible to do by default!
That's right, this new smartphone from the "Redmi" line is able to record videos in 4K resolution. This is a feature that is very nestled in the MIUI ROM code and that, strangely, Xiaomi has decided to disable.
We thank a user of Mi Community that has kindly translated the guide previously developed by a user of XDA.
How to activate 4K registration on Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro
- Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro with minimum 50% battery;
- Authorized root permissions; [GUIDA]
Once you have run the guide to enable the ROOT permissions, you must use a file manager and open the file /system/etc/device_features/whyred.xml
Find the text string that reads "support_camera_4k_quality".
Change the value "false" with the value "true" and then save the file.
Now you are free to restart your smartphone so you can enjoy the new option in the camera settings.
A really very simple and accurate guide. Recall that it is always possible to go back re-setting the value as "false" in the 3 step.
According to the details provided by the source, this procedure has been tested only on the MIUI 8.4.3 Global Beta (Oreo) but, in theory, it should work also with the other versions.
Remember the specifications of this device? No?
This smartphone of fine workmanship is equipped with one Dual rear camera from 12 Mpixel (f / 2.2) + 5 Mpixel (f / 2.0) and front camera from 20 Mpixel with Sony IMX376 sensor and facial recognition system. Registration in 4K is guaranteed by the ISP (Image Signal Processor) present in the SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 636. Two memory cuts are available, in both cases of the LPDDR4X type (also in this case it is a first in the Redmi series). You can choose between 4GB and 6GB, in both cases flanked by 64GB of internal memory, expandable with microSD up to 128GB. The screen has a diagonal of 5,99 inches, with 1080 x 2160 resolution and 18: 9 form factor, with reduced top and bottom bezels. Really not bad!
