Xiaomi CEO Confirms Processor & Dual Cameras On the Redmi Pro!

by Joe 20

The past few days have been flooded with news about the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Pro smartphone that will be announced on July 27. In the past three days, the company released a few teasers which hinted and almost confirmed that the phone will come with a metal body, deca-core processor, dual cameras and OLED display. However, now, Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun has officially confirmed the processor on board the upcoming smartphone as well as the presence of dual cameras at the back.

First of all, Lei Jun confirmed that the Redmi Pro will feature the Helio X25 deca-core processor. We had a doubt whether the phone would be using the slightly slower Helio X20, but this confirms that the faster variant is going to end up on the device. Along with the image (above), he asked his fans which other flagships use Helio X25 chipset inside. Well, there are the two popular ones, the flagship Pro 6 and then, the Le 2 Pro. So, looks like he’s trying to say that the new Redmi model will be competing with these two devices.

About an hour later, Lei Jun further took to Weibo to ask another question to his fans: “Some smartphones use two cameras to take pictures, what would you call this technology?”. He even gave three options: Dual cameras, Dual lens and double cameras.

Well, we take this as a confirmation that the upcoming Redmi Pro features a dual camera setup!

Now, we look forward to more details about the rest of the specs of the device, such as the display size, RAM, storage, fingerprint and other features. Expect most of these details to be revealed in the coming days to the launch. Meanwhile, you can read this article for its earlier leaked specs.

Stay tuned!

  • Frank Wu

    Hoping it will have NFC!!

    • balcobomber25

      It should as Xiaomi is attempting to launch it’s own mobile payment service. But the Mi Max did not so who knows.

      • Federico

        In China almost every mobile payment system uses QR codes, so there’s no need for NFC.

        • balcobomber25

          Yea, NFC hasn’t really caught in China. The funny thing is China was one of the first countries to launch NFC payments

  • Muhammad Yasir

    OMG !
    im soo gonna force myself to get a part-time job (no MATTER HOW HUMILIATING OR HOW TIRING ) JUST so i can collect CASH for my DREAM PHONE (which no other than the RENOWNED and SPLENDID XIAOMI are MAKING !)

    this has 10 cores , prolly loads of ROM , atleast 4 GB ram , a finger print scanner , TYPE C (it would be an ASSHAT move to exclude type C !) , Fast Charging , large battery , dual flash , FHD display , Marshmallow OS , LARGE SCREEN and whatnot !

    oh my … is this a DREAM ?! cos that spec set being fulfilled surely feels like a DREAM PHONE IN CULMINATION !


    • AtereJr

      Woah slow down tiger, we would all love to see this on a Mi phone most especially this one. It’s okay to dream but are u sure all of this specs are going to feature in it?
      Take the fingerprint scanner, there is no word about it yet with all the recent leaks but if there will be, it definitely won’t be at the back (mostly due to the dual cam setup).

      • Muhammad Yasir

        no problem .. i just want a fingerprint sensor , no matter where it lies (front , back or side!)

        and most other features are a given … time will tell tho

        but this is somewhat revolutionary and exciting overall!

        • AtereJr

          Well guess what, the best part of your dream is here – PRICING. The phone is reported to go for an official $210 price tag.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            ohh … :/
