It will be just awesome if this turns out to be true: it seems that the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 model appeared for a moment in Xiaomi’s official page and then was removed, but not before we could take a screenshot of it!
Gizchina News of the week
According to this, the device is expected to use Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chipset (Snapdragon 660 SoC), a CPU that has impressive benchmark results so far, better than last year’s Snapdragon 821 flagship model! It will also pack a 5,5 inch OLED display with full HD resolution but it will stick to a 16MP single lens camera on its back (unlike Redmi Pro’s dual camera).
Rumors say that the device should be really affordable, given the specs it carries and will be priced at 1199 Yuan, that’s approximately $174! In case you don’t remember (and why should you?), last year’s Redmi Pro model was launched at a price of ¥1499 ($217) for the 3GB + 32GB model with the Helio X20 SoC; ¥1699 ($246) for the 3GB + 64GB model with the more powerful Helio X25 processor and finally ¥1999 ($290) for the 4GB + 128GB model that was also using a Helio X25 chipset.
This year’s model is expected to launch soon, so you’d better be ready to grab it!
