It has become a fad among smartphone-makers to tease key features before the official launch, and Xiaomi is no exception. But sometimes the companies do tend to go overboard.
Xiaomi, in a bid to evoke excitement among followers, has now teased a promotional video of the Redmi Pro. The teaser, which is based on a Chinese kitchen theme, gives a glimpse into the particulars of the upcoming device, and has given rise to much talk among those loyal to the brand.
The video starts with a row of 10 cups filled with cashews, almonds and other varieties of nuts, and also a plate containing two bamboo shoots.
Many fans (via official Xiaomi blog) seem to have deciphered the teaser based on the visuals.
They have suggested that the device will be powered by deca-core CPU. It will also house a dual-camera module on the back.
In the final phase of the video, we see a blue-hued dish on the plate with a tag "OLED Ping" confirming the device will boast LED-based screen. Once launched, Redmi Pro will be the first Xiaomi phone to boast this type of display panels. The older generation devices come with LCD screen.
The Redmi Pro test model, which appeared on Geekbench last week, had also showed the device running MediaTek Helio X25 deca-core CPU.
Earlier this month, Liu Hao Ran, Xiaomi's newly appointed Chinese celebrity brand ambassador and spokesperson, had teased a phone with dual cameras on the rear, but back then, he had refrained from revealing the name of the device.
Now, with the release of the two new teaser images, things are getting clearer on the Redmi Pro.
We are still one week away from the launch, and Xiaomi is certain to showcase more features of the Redmi Pro before July 27.
Stay tuned for more updates.
