“The Redmi Pro sports an aluminum body, up to 4GB of RAM, up to 128GB of storage, a fingerprint sensor and VoLTE”
Xiaomi has just unveiled its latest Redmi series smartphone dubbed the Redmi Pro at an event in Beijing. As teased by the brand earlier, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro sports a brushed aluminium body with chamfered edges, and gets a dual-camera set up at the back. The phone runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8, and features a ceramic fingerprint sensor, which is integrated into its home button.
The Xiaomi Redmi Pro’s rear cameras include a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor and a 5-megapixel Samsung sensor. The former captures still images, while the latter captures depth information. The phone offers hardware-level depth of field processing thanks to the dedicated DOF ImagiQ photo processor. It allows you to capture a photo first and adjust the depth of field later. For selfies and video calling, the device gets a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter.
Coming to the other specs, the RedmI Pro flaunts a 5.5-inch full HD OLED display with a 100 percent NTSC colour gamut. The phone is powered by a 2.5GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 processor, aided by a Mali-T880 GPU. It comes in two variants – one with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM, and the other with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. There’s also a MediaTek Helio X20-powered model of the phone, which offers 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Connectivity features on board include a USB Type-C port, 4G LTE with VoLTE support, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. The device is fuelled by a beefy 4,050mAh battery.
The Xiaomi Redmi Pro comes in Gold, Silver and Dark Grey colour options. The Helio X20 SoC variant has been priced at RMB 1,499 (~Rs 15,100). The Helio X25/ 3GB RAM edition costs RMB 1,699 (~Rs 17,130), while the higher-specced 4GB/ 128GB variant is priced at RMB 1,999 (~Rs 20,150). The phone will go on sale in China starting August 6th.
