Xiaomi Redmi Pro photo shows more of that brushed body


xiaomi redmi pro

Redmi Pro news is hot this morning with an image showing more of the brushed metal phone and even confirmation the device will run a Helio X25 chipset.

The brushed metal body of the Redmi Pro has appeared in new photos this morning along with an image showing the side of the phone and its retail packaging.

This is not the first time that we have seen the metal finish of the phone, but this image does give us a better idea of the quality of the finish. Even in this slightly blurred photo the body looks much more upmarket than previous Redmi devices.

A second image shows the side of the Redmi Pro with its retail packaging. It appears that this is the left side of the phone and that the antenna bands continue to run around the edges of the handset.

In other news, Xiaomi’s Lei Jun has taken to Weibo to confirm that the Redmi Pro will run a 10 core Mediatek Helio X25 chipset. This is a slightly updated version of the X20 with more powerful GPU and faster 2.5Ghx clock speed.

From previous reports we expect the Xiaomi Redmi Pro to launch with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB memory, fingerprint scanner, OLED 1080p display, and even dual rear cameras!

    x25 and a dual cam setup? Nice! Now nobody will even consider to buy an elephone s7 or p9000 edge. (not that they would in the 1st place anyway) haha.

      Anyone that was considering those two phones needs their heads checked lol. To many low priced phones from cheap brands to ever even consider an Elecrap.

        someone was spreading the rumor that you were gonna buy an Elephone either S7 or p9k Edge 😀 ….

          He bought the P9000 and discourages everyone from getting one so he can be the only kid on the block with such a marvelous, stable, well supported, masterful blend of art and cutting edge technology…………….. Bhwahahahahaha!

            I’m trying to keep the “excellent” Elephone, UMi and Ulefonea all to myself!!!!

              You forgot about the 8gb ram 512gb rom Doogee!

              The Doogee with the 16K display that’s so advanced it looks like 720p. According to Doogee it’s a trick to save battery life.

          I might actually if I find one cheap enough.

    My problem with Helio X20 and 25 is their GPU. They have stronger CPU compared to SD652 but a disappointingly weaker GPU.
    Would like to see Xiaomi making an SD652 version available for this new Redmi.

    This one looks a lot closer to 5.5 inches than previous leaked images which looked like a 5 inch phone.

      I would prefer a 5.2″ for better usage with one hand. If it is a 5.5″ phone, hope the width will be below 75mm. I really don’t care about the CPU (Snapdragon vs Mediatek), I would buy the Redmi Pro instantly if it is avaible through resellers.

        Personally I prefer a 5.5 inch for better viewing of media, that little bit of extra space makes a difference with movies and games.

        • Misto
          July 22, 2016

          Yeah the difference is not that huge, honestly if after resellers the final price is not exaggerated I will buy the Redmi Pro without any hesitation if it comes with a big battery and good camera. I do have a budget of 400€ but I dont want to spend all of it for a phone.

          If the leaked photos are real, then the Redmi Pro seems to have a great build quality (premium).

            you could already buy mi5.

              July 23, 2016

              MI5’s design is horrible and it has a small battery. I will get the Redmi Pro for sure, I also like the Honor 8 but it is still expensive.
              I don’t want to spend more 200€ for a phone.

              July 24, 2016

              Well, if it the case then no problem for me. I will leave with the design taking into account the price of the device. It is been a while that I am looking for a phone at a competitive price with decent camera, mid range processor (like SD625, SD650, SD652) and good battery life. I was expecting a Redmi 3S with SD625 but instead Xiaomi preferred the SD430 and the camera is below average. There are of course new devices like the Honor 8 which is offering a lot but still expensive for me. The Redmi Note 3 Pro is cheaper now but its camera is not great at all. I am curious to see the quality of the camera on the Redmi Pro. I hope that Xiaomi will release a Redmi Pro with black front. I am tired of the white one which is released at first 99% of the time.

              What about lenovo vibe x3? Good battery and camera.

              Lenovo is too big for my hands.

              July 25, 2016

              I bet not bigger than any Redmi Note device. Let’s see if the Pro is 5-5.2″.

    i have , but ONE QUESTION …
    who on EARTH leaks these images and why doesn’t the Lei Jun Mafia take care of the leakers 😀 ???
    (not that im against leaks but would really like to know who on earth is the restless soul who keeps ratting his company out ! )

    • TheOracle
      July 22, 2016

      They’re deliberate leaks. Every company does it.

        July 22, 2016

        oh…

        • balcobomber25
          July 23, 2016

          Yea it’s usually a high ranking executive who “leaks” them. Sometimes they are fan made designs in photoshop passed off as a leak.

          The reason companies will “leak” photos is to gauge public reaction.

            makes sense

    stop fighting over the faggy X25 versus SD652 battle, the only real questions are : is brush metal the new rose gold ? Will there be brush gold, silver, copper and gunmetal ? And of course, is Lei Jun wearing a wig ?
