Xiaomi's announced the Redmi Pro featuring an OLED display plus a dual-camera

Today, the Chinese company announced the Redmi Pro which is the latest smartphone in its entry-level portfolio. As suggested by the name, this Android 6.0 device packs some surprising features that make it stand out from its predecessors: This is the first time that Xiaomi's featuring an OLED display plus a dual-camera setup on a device, which is a surprising move given that these are headed to the affordable Redmi line instead of the flagship Mi line. The price is From 1,499 yuan which is about $225.

The Redmi Pro comes in a gold- or silver-colored brushed metallic unibody -- a real bonus at this price point -- and packs a 5.5-inch 1080p OLED display (with full NTSC gamut), a fingerprint reader plus a 5-megapixel selfie camera on the front side. Flip it over and you'll find a Mi 5-like curved back sans glass, along with a dual camera featuring a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 main sensor plus a 5-megapixel Samsung assistive sensor for bokeh effects. Like many earlier dual-camera phones, here you can change the focus point on the image even after capturing; and there's a dual-tone LED flash, too. There's also a generous 4,050mAh battery inside -- similar to the one in the very recent Redmi 3S -- with fast charging via the USB Type-C port. Likewise, the Redmi Pro has the same IR blaster as the Redmi 3S which lets you control your TV and home appliances.

Given the base price point, it's no surprise that the Redmi Pro is powered by a MediaTek chipset --MediaTek Helio X20 / X25 - the world's first mobile processor with Tri-Cluster CPU architecture and ten processing cores (Deca-core). 

The base spec starts comes with three variants :
  • 10 Core Helio X20 32GB storage 3GB of RAM (1,499 yuan/about $225)
  • 10 Core Helio X25 64GB storage 3GB of RAM (1,699 yuan/about $255)
  • 10 Core Helio X25 28GB storage 4GB of RAM (1,999 yuan/about $300)

As with most Chinese and Indian smartphones these days, the Redmi Pro is a dual-SIM 4G+ device (VoLTE supported), though you can also use the second SIM slot to add a microSD card instead. 

There's no word on when to expect the Redmi Pro to hit the markets outside China, but we're pretty sure it'll eventually land in India plus other developing markets. Or you can just fly yourself to China for a quick shopping trip.
