Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 will come with Helio P25 SoC, not Snapdragon 660?


Recently we heard rumors that Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 was about to be unveiled some time during March, packing a -not-yet-unveiled- Snapdragon 660 SoC and a single main camera, thus having no relevance to the original model that came with dual camera setup on its back.

Earlier today however some new leaks from China insist that the upcoming Redmi Pro 2 model will indeed have a dual camera on its back, equipped with two 12MPixel sensors! The same leaks also suggest that it will rely on MediaTek’s Helio P25 and not the Snapdragon 660 SoC, meaning that the Chinese company will choose an octa-core CPU that consists of four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz and another four that only go up to 1.6GHz, along with a Mali-T880MP4 GPU and support for Cat.6 LTE.

If rumors are correct, then the new Redmi Pro 2 model will have metal design, 2.5D curved glass on top of the display and two variants: one with 4GB RAM/64GB ROM priced at CNY 1,599 ($231) and another one with 6GB RAM/128GB ROM that will have a price tag of CNY 1,799 ($260). We expect to see the upcoming model later on this month, so be prepared guys.

    Find a mediatek chip means a chinese version and not a global one. Bad news, as apps like Snapchat etc. are bugged on Redmi Note 4 MTK and Redmi Pro

    common Xiaomi! whats up with this trend of upgrading a model but choosing a weaker soc? I mean, part reason of an upgrage is to get better???, I mean we expected a snapdragon 65+ for the global version of the RMN4 but got a 4X with SD625( but maybe a power version is coming? correct me if am wrong), which is not in anyway a bad cpu but doesn’t feel like an upgrade from either the 3pro or the mtk version of 4. it’s like owning a tesla model s and ‘upgrading’ to a model 3 which is in fact a fantastic car but not a worthy upgrade just because it’s new. but again, maybe they will have multiple versions as seen in the redmi line. but other features are exciting, please blow us away with at least the camera performance

    DAMN YOU Xiaomi if you really put another mediatek soc to your new smartphones, you make your fans NOT HAPPY with that kind shitty soc.

    Also with that high pricing, it will be very overprice if you only put the lousy mediatek soc in it. It should be $125

    The reason i WILL NOT EVER buy Redmi note 4 (both normal mediatek and Pro SD625 version) because of their shitty weak soc. I purposely waiting for redmi pro 2 because of previous rumor that it will be equip with a faster qualcom soc 660.

    Guys, just go for the Mi5 – 200 $ +new + flagship device for less, don’t forget, many compare the phone with s7 edge.
