Xiaomi is known as a Chinese smartphone manufacturer targeting their product line towards the low to mid-end sectors of the market just like the Redmi Note 3. Furthermore, it is also known to create devices for specific niches such as what they did with the Mi Max. Just recently, they have released the Redmi Pro, which is the new “Redmi Flagship” device.

One of its main selling points is its Dual Rear Camera setup.
The Xiaomi Redmi Pro Channels its Inner Huawei P9 With a Dual Rear Camera Setup
Along with the dual camera setup, the new smartphone from Xiaomi offers an aluminum body that has a brushed metal finish. Because the device has an external plastic antennae that is visible on the body, it is no surprise that the device sports a unibody architecture. When looking at the back of the device, you will see the aforementioned dual-camera setup. There is also a fingerprint sensor, which is found below the camera. This kind of setup for the fingerprint sensor is typical for the company’s other phones. For its front, you will take a gander at the device’s 5.5-inch OLED display, and it does promise a better contrast than most LCD displays found on other smartphones within the same price class.
Looking at its internals, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro comes in two processor models: one variant has the Helio X20 SoC and the other has the Helio X25 SoC. The former has a tri-cluster setup that is built on a 20nm process. It has low power cores that comprise of 4x Cortex-A53 that are clocked at 1.55Ghz, whereas the medium power cores comprise of 4x Cortex-A53 clocked in at 2.0GHz. As for the performance part, it is handled by 2x Crotex-A72 clocked in at 2.5GHz.
As for the Helio X25 SoC modelm it comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage capacity. It is then further divided into two more variants, with the middle variant having the 3GB of RAM but has 64GB of internal storage capacity. There’s also the top-of-the-line unit that offers 4GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage capacity.
The main selling point of the new smartphone from Xiaomi is the aforementioned dual-camera setup. The primary camera has a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor, whereas the secondary camera bears a 5-megapixel Samsung sensor. The second one is responsible for capturing information that is related to depth of field. The device comes with the company’s custom-made Android UI called MIUI 8 and it runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow right off the bat.
