There is a flash module placed between the two cameras. There is also a 5MP front-facing camera. Xiaomi is targetting this smartphone at photography enthusiasts.
On the inside, you get the deca-core processors with the Helio X20 and Helio X25 chipsets which are paired with Mali T880 GPUs. There will also be a fingerprint sensor on the home button, a 5.5-inch OLED display with 2.5D curved glass. It will come with a hybrid dual SIM configuration.
The phones will come with a 4050mAh battery capacity. Redmi Pro will launch in China on 6 August, and hopefully arrive in India soon. However, there is no official date for the India launch yet.
