Xiaomi has started rolling out MIUI 9.2.4 Global Stable update for newly launched Redmi Note 5 Pro. The update is pushed via OTA and brings Face Unlock feature to the device. At the time of announcement last week, Xiaomi promised to bring Face Unlock feature through an OTA update by March-end, but it seems the Chinese smartphone giant wants to impress the initial Redmi Note 5 Pro buyers by early rolling out this amazing feature. With this, the Redmi Note 5 Pro becomes the company’s first handset in India to get Face Unlock feature.

At the launch event, the company said that its face detection algorithm scans features in roughly 500 milliseconds using a high accuracy matching mechanism, making it faster than the fingerprint scanner. However, the Face Unlock is certainly not as secure as the fingerprint scanner.
The new MIUI 9.2.4 NEIMIEK update is about 1.6GB in size and also brings significant camera improvements and stability optimizations. All those who have ordered the Redmi Note 5 Pro in its first flash sale will see the notification on its first boot itself. Although, users can also take the help of Updater app to manually download and install the firmware.
