We all know that the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is set to be unveiled on July 27th, just days from now. That didn’t stop Xiaomi’s own CEO, Lei Jun, from revealing a few additional things about the upcoming device. In fact, we’re seeing several more (important) details you’d certainly love.
First, the SoC. Lei Jun confirmed that the Xiaomi Redmi Pro will come with the Helio X25 chipset from MediaTek. This will certainly make the device incredibly fast and very efficient, a combination we all look for from a smartphone these days.
We are also seeing the device being used by an early adopter. It features a metal back cover with the classic Redmi shape, along with a dual-camera setup on the back. The dual-camera appears to be separated by an LED flash.
Speaking of the dual-camera setup the Xiaomi Redmi Pro uses, a recent teaser also confirms its ability to take photos with shallow depth of field. There is no detail about the two cameras just yet – not even the resolution it will support – but the sample images look really good.
It is also confirmed that the Xiaomi Redmi Pro will come with MIUI 8 out of the box. The device is using Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as its base operating system. Of course, all MIUI 8 features will be present, including Dual Space and the ability to clone apps for a more fluid multiple account experience.
Build quality seems to be in line with other Redmi phones. The metal back looks really good under the light. There is a slight brushed metal texture on the surface. The screen looks just as good; Xiaomi Redmi Pro is rumored to use an AMOLED panel for deeper blacks and vivid colors.
Xiaomi’s July 27th Event
As mentioned earlier, we’re just days from the official release of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro. The company is hosting an event on July 27th, 2016. Aside from the Redmi Pro, Xiaomi will also be launching its first laptop.
The event will certainly be interesting. Based on the leaks and teasers so far, both the Xiaomi Redmi Pro and the upcoming Mi Laptop will once again be superb in terms of value. There is no work about pricing and detailed specifications just yet, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Don’t forget to stay tuned here on ObeyGeek for more reports from the launch event. Trust me, this is going to be a good one.
