Xiaomi listed Redmi pro 2 with OLED display in its official site:
Redmi phones have been insanely popular for their incredible features and great quality. It is true to its original philosophy of letting users expect more, achieve more, Redmi Pro was a powerhouse featuring rear dual cameras, OLED display and front fingerprint sensor. Inside its premium brushed aluminum body, Redmi Pro houses a MediaTek 10-core Helio X25 processor. It was the most powerful Redmi we’ve ever built. The successor to this pro device is upon us.
Xiaomi is on a roll leaking its new hardware. After reportedly listing upcoming Mi Max 2on its official website, Xiaomi has once again accidentally put up another yet-to-be released device, the Redmi Pro 2, on its site which was there for a brief period and was subsequently pulled down. But the limited time was more than enough for someone to take a screenshot which has gone berserk now.
We wonder, was this an accident or a deliberate move to innocently tease its upcoming product, at the same time not endorsing it officially. Whatever it is, this unexpected appearance of the Redmi Pro 2 on the official website has given enough juice to tipsters for now. The screenshot reveals a few key specs which we can take as officially confirmed.
Unfortunately, there’s no official word on the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 as of now. The brief listing of the Redmi Pro 2, however, points to an imminent launch of the phone in China in the coming weeks or months. The China listing was first spotted by GizmoChina.
Let’s talk about specs:
So, this successor to Xiaomi Redmi Pro will rock a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080p. The phone will be powered by Snapdragon 660 processor, which is a nice upgrade from the MediaTek chipset carried by Redmi Pro.
Much like the original Xiaomi Redmi Pro, the successor is also likely to sport a dual rear camera setup. To recall, the Redmi Pro featured dual rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor with a 5-lens module, an f/2.0 aperture, and PDAF autofocus, coupled with a 5-megapixel Samsung (unspecified) sensor for the secondary depth-sensing camera.
The battery on the new Redmi Pro 2 has been slightly upgraded to 4100mAh from Redmi Pro’s 4050Mah, though only little. Xiaomi will be keeping the dual rear camera set-up intact in Redmi Pro’s successor as well with a 16MP sensor. The phone which went live was seen packing in 3GB RAM. But there should be 4GB and 6GB versions as well, we are sure. Finally, the price was written as 1199 yuan which translates to around INR 11500 which should be for the 3GB model, while the other versions will cost more when released. We can’t wait to have our hands on this device.
The Chinese company is also said to have launched a new pair of USB Type-C earphones in China. The new USB Type-C earphones have been launched at CNY 299 (roughly Rs. 3,000), and will be going on sale in China soon.
