Xiaomi launched the Redmi Pro smartphone around July last year. The smartphone that sported a mammoth 4050 mAh battery and priced at just $200 (approx Rs. 13,500) for the 32GB variant and $278 (approx Rs 19,000) for the 64GB variant was selling like hotcakes in China. Apart from the massive battery, the other selling point of the device was its brushed metal body, OLED display and dual cameras (13MP + 5MP).
Like every other ‘triumphant’ phone out there, now it seems like the mighty Redmi Pro is getting a successor too: the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, discovered first by PlayfulDroid. A poster showing off the Redmi Pro 2 has surfaced on popular leaks website Weibo, along with pictures and specifications. Check out the poster below.
According to the poster, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 will come with two storage variants. One of the variants is said to carry 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, and the other with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It will be powered by Snapdragon 660 processor and backed by an enormous 4500 mAh battery. There is also a 12MP Sony IMX362 rear sensor listed in the specs sheet.
Looking at the pictures, one can safely assume that the Redmi Pro 2 will have a larger display, compared to the 5.5-inch display of the Redmi Pro. Also, this one will boast ultra-slim bezels at the two side edges of the screen. Based on the poster, the 4GB RAM variant will carry a price tag of 1599 Yuan (approx Rs 15,700), while the 6GB RAM variant will be priced at 1799 Yuan (approx Rs 17,700). Currently, there is no information regarding the launch date or availability of the smartphone. It’s a shame that the Chinese company did not launch the original Redmi Pro outside China, considering that the device had raised a lot of interest in countries like India and US. At this point, we have no clue if the upcoming Redmi Pro 2 will get a global launch or not. Stay tuned for more updates on the device.
