Xiaomi is reportedly gearing up to unveil the successor to last year’s Xiaomi Redmi Pro. To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro featuring a deca-core processor and a dual-camera setup did not make it outside China market. However, a new Xiaomi phone, allegedly the Redmi Pro 2, has appeared online with pricing and some key specifications. Xiaomi has apparently dropped the idea of housing a dual-camera setup in the rumoured Redmi Pro 2 smartphone.
The leaked image also reveals that the device features a single 12MP rear camera. Other leaked specifications hint that the Redmi Pro 2 packs in a bigger 4500mAh battery under the hood. The phone will likely arrive launched in two memory options — 4GB RAM with 64GB built-in storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB built-in storage. We, however, are not sure about the phone’s memory expandability by means of a microSD card support.
The report has it that the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 is priced at 1,599 Yuan (approximately Rs 15,720) for 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. On the other hand, the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant comes at the price of 1,799 yuan (approximately Rs 17,695).
Last year’s Xiaomi Redmi Pro sports a 5.5 Full HD display with 401 PPI pixel density. Inside are a deca-core MediaTek MT6797 chip paired with Mali-T880 GPU for graphics. Furthermore, the phone comes in two variants — 3GB RAM + 32GB/64GB built-in memory and 4GB RAM + 128GB built-in storage. It features a dual 13MP + 5MP rear camera and a 5MP secondary camera for capturing selfies. It also packs in a fingerprint scanner, Type-C port, and 4050mAh battery.
