Redmi Pro Could Be The Very First Redmi Phone To Feature An OLED Panel


Redmi Pro is said to be a highly souped up successor to the company’s Redmi Note 3, and it looks like Xiaomi is changing things up with a different form of display.

Redmi Pro details An OLED panel – Might End Up Making The Smartphone Slightly More Expensive

According to the leaked image given below, Redmi Pro could feature an OLED panel. With manufacturers like Samsung and LG ramping up OLED display production, it’s almost likely that nearly all mid-ranged devices to high-end smartphones are going to be sporting such a display. However, what is compelling manufacturers to head down this road? OLED panels have energy efficient attributes that allow users to save slightly more battery life. Additionally, the panel’s thickness allows manufacturers to reduce the overall thickness of their future handsets, and we know how inclined manufacturers are to continue reducing the thickness of its offerings.

On the bad side however, OLED panels are expensive and might increase the retail price of the upcoming Redmi Pro. However, Xiaomi’s successful business model will naturally force the firm to continue pricing the upcoming phone at the range it once offered its Redmi Note 3. As for the rest of the hardware, a screen size of 5.5 inches has been listed, and we assume that the resolution is going to be retained at 1080p to allow for additional talk-time to the user. The biggest change is going to come from the internals and we honestly never expected a Helio X25 to be part of the hardware specifications.

For those that don’t know, MediaTek Helio X25 is a slightly more powerful variant of Helio X20. Both chipsets feature Cortex-A72 and Cortex-A53 cores that are paired together in ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture and will feature the following processing cores and clock speed differences.

Helio X20 (MT6797)

  • Two Cortex-A72 cores running at 2.1-2.3GHz
  • Four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.85GHz
  • Four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz
  • ARM Mali-T8800 running at 780MHz

Helio X25 (MT6797T)

  • Two Cortex-A72 cores running at 2.5GHz
  • Four Cortex-A53 cores running at 2.0GHz
  • Four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.55GHz
  • ARM Mali-T8800 running at 850MHz


While a Helio X25 is going to be present, the leak from Twitter also suggests that 4GB of RAM is going to be a part of the hardware. While this is more impressive, we suspect that a Snapdragon 652 could be present in the international variant of the device. This is probably not going to be the only dual-camera smartphone from Xiaomi, since there are rumors that both Mi Note 2 and Mi5s will come stacked with the same upgrade, but it could be the most affordable dual-camera smartphone that you guys could ever come across.
