by Jed John 14

In a surprising twist to its current set up, Xiaomi has announced a new price for the Redmi Pro which was released a couple of months back as the company’s first dual cameras sporting device. The Xiaomi Redmi Pro price started at 1,499 Yuan ($225), coming in as Xiaomi’s costliest Redmi handset till date. Now the device will be available for 1,099 Yuan ($163) for the lower version with Helio X20, 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM, that’s a huge 400 Yuan off!

Not only that, the higher storage version with Helio X20 SoC, 3GB RAM + 64GB ROM has also been slashed downwards to 1299 Yuan ($193) from its previous 1699 Yuan price tag. In addition, the top-end Redmi Pro version with Helio X25 chips, 4GB RAM + 128GB of built-in storage which hitherto retails for 1999 Yuan ($300) now starts at 1599 Yuan ($237).

This is coming a bit as a surprise as no reason was given for the price cut across board but it may be connected to the launch of the Huawei Honor 6X which also features a dual camera set up and is moderately priced. Sales of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro would commence on October 19 at 10 am via Mi mall, and Mi Home.

As a reminder, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro was released with an all new CNC brushed metal body design, equipped with the MediaTek Helio X25 on the topmost version with 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There are two other versions, both with Helio X20 chips, 3GB of RAM and then 32GB ROM as well as 64GB ROM respectively. The device also sports a 13MP main camera and 5MP depth of field sensor at the rear, with a large 4500mAh battery keeping the lights on.

    I think this price cut makes this my next new phone. Will wait for the meri/Mi5c release details first.

    • princetom

      The meri, performance wise, isn’t gonna be close to this at all

      • Lazar Prodanovic

        We didn’t see “Meri” yet & there for don’t even know what big cluster will be, if it’s a costume core from their server design you are in for a surprise.

        • princetom

          Follow the news closely

      • Jh1

        I agree, but if it can offer SD 625 level performance, it will be more than adequate for my needs. I’m more interested in battery life and camera performance. Though with this price cut, the redmi pro is going to be hard to top.

    @Jed, that battery should be 4000 mah not 4500.

    I really like this phone previously but is has reviewed more average than anything else. Sort of put me off purchasing it although at this price I may have to take another look.

  • Fábio

    Over hyped phone

    • Jh1

      The dual cam is more of a gimmick than anything, but for $165 not much can compete with the overall package.

  • Kamui

    I think the price now is comparable to better prefer redmi pro rather than redmi 4. I think LetTV start to have some impact on Xiaomi’s price here

  • Hiwyx

    Make a “Taiwan” international version (with b20 and b28) and I buy it.
    This phone is a real bargain.

    but Xiaomi phones are banned in Pakistan :'(

    i would BLINDLY order this

    • princetom

      Awwwww, yasir finally getting a phone. Hope he wount change his mind though

      • Muhammad Yasir

        i din’t change my mind … but PTA does NOT allow import of Xiaomi phones into pakistan due to duped IMEIs on some of their handsets … its makes the phone untrackable in theory and an easy weapon for misuse.

    When will this prices be implemented? At online stores, it is still in their old prices.
