Official Redmi Pro Teaser Poster Is Out – Looks Like A OnePlus 3 Minus The Dual-Camera
The first teaser of Redmi Pro (which includes two images) have been released, and it won’t be long till we get to see the smartphone in action.
Check Out These Redmi Pro Teaser Images – Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun Looks Happy Posing
This is probably the first time that we’re seeing the Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun pose with shorter hair, but regardless, let us focus on the Redmi Pro. From a distance, the phablet sized smartphone looks identical to an OnePlus 3, with its metallic unibody that has been brushed dexterously in order to deliver that aesthetic upgrade. However, the absence of the dual-camera setup would give away the fact that it’s a Redmi Pro, and it could be the first ever smartphone from the Redmi family to feature an OLED display. However, these hardware upgrades (detailed below) will definitely increase the price tag, since it has been rumored that the device’s highest performing model is going to cost $210 in China.
When it gets shipped out to other regions, that price tag is going to increase exponentially. Coming to the hardware specifications, Redmi Pro is going to be armed to the teeth with a MediaTek Helio X25, which is a 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 speeds.
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
The powerful SoC will deliver the much needed performance, but the presence of 10 cores with a higher clock speed will spell disaster for the battery life. However, it has been reported that Redmi Pro will feature a massive 4,100mAh battery underneath the hood.
While a Helio X25 is going to be present, more info also suggests that 4GB of RAM is going to be a part of the hardware. While this is most 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.
The release of Redmi Pro could allow the price of Redmi Pro 3 to further reduce. Even now, the affordable Snapdragon 650 powered smartphone costs less than $200 on Gear Best and is supplemented by 3GB of RAM and an astounding 4,000mAh battery, making it a great purchase for those that want a powerful Android smartphone that goes easy on their wallets.
