This device is named the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 and features metal chassis, but this time a single main camera. In place of the dual cameras on the original Redmi Pro, the Redmi Pro 2 has a Sony IMX362 with a 1/2.55” sensor and a 1.4µm pixel, there is also a Dual Pixel autofocus feature too!
Other changes include the move away from Mediatek to a Snapdragon 66- chipset. The phone also has a larger 4500mAh battery but retains a 5.5-inch FHD display.
