Today was the big day of the Xiaomi event in Beijing and it brought us a new smartphone, as expected: the Xiaomi Redmi Pro. The device is now official, with a starting price of $225 and featuring a brushed metal body, as well as a beefy battery.
Xiaomi Redmi Pro has a dual camera setup, with a 13 MP Sony IMX258 sensor for photo/video capture, accompanied by a 5 MP Samsung camera used to capture depth of field information. Inside the device we find a 2.3 GHz deca core Helio X20 or X25 CPU, depending on the version of the device you purchase. There’s also 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32, 64 or 128 GB of storage.
We get a 5.5 inch AMOLED Full HD screen upfront and an USB Type C Port, plus an infrared sensor at the top. One of the appealing points here is the 4050 mAh battery, which somehow didn’t bulk up the phone past 8.15 mm in thickness. Xiaomi Redmi Pro will start being shipped on August 6th, priced at $225 for the 3 GB RAM/ 32 GB storage model with Helio X20 CPU, $255 for the 3 GB RAM, 64 GB unit and $299 for the 4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage handset.
