Last week, Xiaomi confirmed to launch the Redmi series by the end of July, but refrained from revealing the device's moniker. Now, the company has teased an image with the name.
Xiaomi's poster (via official Weibo account) has disclosed that the Redmi Pro will be unveiled on July 27, not Redmi Note 4, as previously rumoured.
What we know so far about Redmi Note 3 successor:
From what we have gathered, Redmi Pro will have huge upgrade over its predecessor. It is said to come with display based on OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) and two cameras on the back. This is the first time a Xiaomi device will boast such a specification. Previous iterations came with LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen and a single camera module.
The Redmi Pro is expected to sport a 5.5-inch screen with all-metal body and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8 OS backed by MediaTek (MT6797T) Helio X25 deca-core processor, 4GB RAM and 4,100mAh battery.
Recently, Redmi Pro made a stop at Geekbench with same aforementioned specification; it scored an impressive 1.847 and 4,761 points on single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
