Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 may launch before Xiaomi Mi 6 as price and specs leak out

Xiaomi is all set to announce the upcoming smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 before the much anticipated Mi 6.

According to a report by Gizmochina, the launch may happen this month, before the launch of Mi 6, the next flagship by the Chinese smartphone maker. There is no official statement by Xiaomi at the time of writing but just like previous launches, the launch of Pro 2 will be limited to China.

As reported earlier, the smartphone will come with a brushed metal finish at the back and skip the dual-camera for a single lens with improved specs. It will feature a new sensor, the 12MP Sony IMX 362. This is a 1/2.55” sensor with large 1.4µm pixels and Dual Pixel autofocus. On paper it should be better than the 1µm pixels that are on the Mi Note and Mi Mix. The smartphone is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor but there is a possibility that the company maybe working on MediaTek Helio P25.

Other features include a larger 4,500mAh battery which is up from 4,050mAh unit. Expect two storage and RAM variants including one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage which could cost CNY 1,800 (Rs 18,000 approx). The other one would be a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage which would be the base version priced at CNY 1,600 (Rs 16,000 approx).
