Xiaomi has released their first dual camera phone – Redmi Pro at the launch event held in China National Convention Center. The design of the device wasn’t secret since the device already got leaked by several different sources on the internet before the release, but the device is officially released now and we have all the authentic information and detail about the first Xiaomi dual camera phone.
Redmi Pro is powered by Mediatek’s deca-core Helio X25 chipset with Mali-T880 GPU, and sports a 5.5-inch FullHD OLED display. Xiaomi says the Redmi Pro is the company’s “most powerful Redmi ever.”
Judging the design and specification the device is looking stunningly powerful from every aspect and I hope Redmi Pro will also perform as per our expectation and we will see the performance one can expect from flagship device like this.

The main focus of Redmi Pro is its rear dual camera and as I mentioned in beginning this is the first dual camera device from Xiaomi so Mi fans can expect a magnificent camera experience from Redmi Pro. The company has claimed that the Redmi Pro is capable of capturing the SLR level photographs, thanks to the dual camera setup and a separate “CPU”, specializing in image operation. Apart from dual camera setup it also featured Dual-tone LED flash, 5-lens module, f/2.0 aperture and PDAF autofocus.
There are three variants of Redmi Pro 32GB variant with Helio X20(2.1GHz) & 3GB, 64 GB variant with Helio X25(2.3GHz) & 3GB RAM and the top variant with 128GB internal storage + 4GB RAM and Helio X25 (2.5GHz).
Mi fans in China can purchase this device from August 6th whereas release date of Redmi Pro in India and other countries is yet to announce officially but it may hit the Indian market by the end of September and there is a chance of official announcement on 15th August (Indian Independence Day)
The price of Redmi Pro In India is yet to be announced officially but Xiaomi has revealed the price of Redmi Pro in China which is 1499 CNY for 32GB, 1699 CNY for 64GB and 1999 CNY for 128GB.
Price of Redmi Pro in India as per current exchange rate will be roughly Rs. 15,000 for 32GB variant, Rs.17,000 for 64GB variant and Rs. 20,000 for 128GB variant.
