After the success that Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 saw in India, customers and industry watchers alike are bound to display some curiosity over its successor, the Redmi Pro. The new device has already been released in its home country — China — but it is yet to come to India.
The Xiaomi Redmi Pro was unveiled in China in July, and was released in the market a few days later. However, the device is yet to be made available in other countries, including India. The company is currently preparing for the launch of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 on Sept. 14. So it wouldn't come as a surprise if the Redmi Pro is released to other markets after the new handset from the Note series is announced.
The Chinese technology giant is tight-lipped on the release of its Redmi Pro but it should arrive soon, as it has been more than a month since it was launched in its home country. It features a full metal body, a fingerprint sensor and comes in three variants — one with Mediatek Helio X20+3GB RAM+32GB storage, priced at 1499 Yuan (around $225 / €204 / Rs. 15,100), the second one with Mediatek Helio+3GB RAM+64GB storage, priced at 1699 Yuan (around $255 / €232 / Rs.17,100), and the third one with Mediatek Helio X25+4GB RAM+128GB internal memory, priced at 1999 Yuan (around $300 / €272 / Rs. 20,100).
The Xiaomi Redmi Pro sports a 5.5-inch screen with 1,920x1,080 pixels (401 ppi pixel density), powered by a Mediatek Helio X20/Mediatek Helio X25 processor, and runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8.0 operating system. It features 32/64/128GB internal storage, a 3/4GB RAM, and a 4,050mAh battery.
