Xiaomi has been making its mark in the smartphone ecosystem, not only in terms of sales with its value for money devices, but also with its experimental phones. It got acclaim in the west with its concept phone – Mi Mix. But, prior to that, the China-based company had launched a Redmi Pro smartphone, its first experimental smartphone.
Now, it seems that Xiaomi is aiming to take its experimental gamble a step ahead. The company is prepping to launch a successor to Redmi Pro, dubbed as Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2. The phone has been leaked online, detailing its features and a listing photo.
The new leak suggests that the smartphone will pack a massive 6GB RAM, paired along with 128GB of onboard storage space. While the 6GB RAM will be for the high-end model, there may also be a 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage variant.
The Redmi Pro smartphone launched by the company in China last year came with a dual camera setup at back and also featured an OLED display. While it was powered by a MediaTek processor, the Redmi Pro 2 is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 66x processor.
Featuring the Snapdragon 66x processor, it could be the world’s first smartphone to be running on that chipset since the company has not yet launched any processor in that series. Other leaked features include a 5.5-inch Full HD display and a 12MP Sony IMX362 sensor for the rear camera.
Though, it seems Xiaomi has decided to drop the dual camera setup. But, it’ll still pack a better camera in comparison to its predecessor. The entire package is said to be powered by a 4,500mAh battery, an upgrade over the 4,050mAh battery on the Redmi Pro.
As of the pricing, the 4GB variant of the Redmi Pro 2 is rumored to cost CNY 1599 (approx. Rs. 15,691), while the 6GB variant is expected to be priced at CNY 1799 (approx. Rs. 17,654). Stay tuned for more updates.
