Xiaomi has officially launched the Redmi Pro, the latest in its smartphone lineup that has been in and out of a lot of leaks in recent weeks. As the leaks had revealed, the Redmi Pro features a dual camera setup at the rear. The phone has a 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP secondary sensor for advanced depth-of-field effects (also called bokeh). On the front lies a 5-megapixel camera as well, although it doesn’t offer any special tricks.
Under the hood, the Redmi Pro is powered by the deca-core Helio X25 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, in both 3GB and 4GB RAM variants. There is also a 3GB RAM variant with the Helio X20 processor. Like the Redmi Note 3, the Redmi Pro has a large battery capacity (4,050 mAh); storage options include 64GB and 128GB, along with a microSD slot for expansion. On the front of the device lies a 5.5-inch OLED display of Full HD resolution.
The Redmi Pro also comes with a USB Type-C port and a front-facing fingerprint sensor. Set to go on sale on August 8 in China, the Redmi Pro costs RMB 1,499 (roughly $225) for the Helio X20 and 3GB RAM model. The more powerful variant with the Helio X25, 3GB RAM and 64GB storage is priced at RMB 1,699 (roughly $255), while the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage variant with the Helio X25 will retail for RMB 1,999 (roughly $300). The phone will be available in gold, silver and dark grey. There is no word on international availability yet.
