The Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 seems to be launching soon, as a follow up to the Redmi Pro that was launched in July 2016 in China.
There are new leaks on Weibo offering a peek into the upcoming device.
According to specs leaked about the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, the Chinese smartphone comes with an OLED display screen of 5.5 inches. It has 2.5 D, curved glass and comes in three versions. One of the versions makes use of the 2.5 GHz, deca core, MediaTek, Helio X20 chipset and is combined with a RAM of 3GB and an internal memory of 32 GB. The second variant uses a deca core, Helio X25 chipset and has the same RAM of 3 GB but comes with a bigger internal storage of 64 GB. The third version of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 is powered by the Helio, X25 chipset and has a bigger RAM of 4 GB with the biggest internal storage of 128 GB.
As for the camera of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2, the rear camera is a dual setup with a resolution of 13 MP and 5 MP, whereas the selfie camera or the front camera has a resolution of 5 MP. The battery on the smartphone is powered at 4050 mAh.
New Leaks: Renders and Specs
There is a new leak that originated on Weibo giving more information regarding the specs and the price of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 along with new renders. According to the new leak, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset. It will be combined with a RAM of 6 GB and an internal storage of 128 GB. As for the camera on the device, it will be a Sony IMX 362 sensor and will have a resolution of 12 MP. The battery will be powered at 4500 mAh.
Leaks on Pricing
The new leaks on Weibo suggest that there will be two versions of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2. One will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The other variant will have 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. The first variant with the lower RAM will be priced at 1599 yuan and the second one with 6 GB RAM will cost around 1799 yuan, according to the leaks.
However, the leak on Weibo could be false and the images are not entirely reliable. There is only one camera at the back according to the render, which does not seem plausible. This is a downgrade when compared to the dual setup of cameras on the previous version, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro released last year. In addition, based on the images it looks as if the fingerprint sensors are placed beneath the camera. This seems a little strange, as the fingerprint sensor on the previous Redmi Pro device was embedded along with the Home button on the front.
There is no news regarding the launch date of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2. It will probably not be released before the month of July this year, as the current variant of the device was only launched in July last year.
