Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 images and specs leak: 4500 mAh battery, 6GB of RAM for premium model

Information about an alleged successor to last year’s Xiaomi Redmi Pro has surfaced on Chinese blogging website Weibo. The legitimacy of the leak has not been confirmed yet, but the user who posted the info claims his image is that of a legitimate product poster for the upcoming device.

Alleged specifications for the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 reveal two variants of the phone – a premium one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and a cheaper version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Unlike last year’s dual-cam Redmi Pro, this phone features only one camera on the back – a 12MP shooter with a Sony IMX362 sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus at its core. The Redmi Pro 2 will allegedly sport the same full HD 5.5-inch, Chinese-made OLED display as its predecessor.

Both versions of the Redmi Pro were powered by Mediatek CPUs, but the new device will reportedly sport a Snapdragon 66x chipset. Another difference from last year’s model is the bump in battery capacity – from the already quite generous 4050 mAh, up to 4500 mAh.

Another interesting bit of information revealed by the leaked poster is the pricing for both models of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2. The base model with 4GB RAM/64GB storage will go for roughly around $230, while the premium variant with 6GB RAM/128GB storage will be priced at $260.

Never heard about Gizchinashop/Aliexpress/Gearbest/Bangood/NIS Store/Xiaomi Global and alot others 3rd parts resellers that ships WorldWide? I dont have any problem to buy Xiaomi stuffs, headphones, powerbank, chargers, Xiaomi Note 3, Xiaomi Mi5S etc... They will start slowly enter the global market. CES 2017 presentation about theirs products isnt just for fun even it was freaking boring presentation.

exactly... and those 3rd party resellers also give 1year international warranty.. and they did sell their phone outside of china, including west, south, and south-east asia, and some part of EU (even if they didn't have physical store or service centre)

They do offer international warranty, but first time you have a problem with device, you will find out that it is only on papir... I gad problems with Mi4i both seller on Ali abd Xiaomi said that there is no international warranty, with Redmi Pro from GB they said that it is my fault that screen has burn in, after just months and half of using it, because i "watch YouTube too much". So yes... You have warranty, but you don't.

Yeah right you're telling me to buy something from a third party seller with double its price. Great thinking Did you even check the prices before commenting that? And good luck with the after sales services in case you damage your phone And obviously it wont support all of my country bands Another issue would be the global rom that xiaomi releases for its products outside china. You wont get that and will be stuck using the China rom forever without updates unless your "third party supplier" installs you the multi pack rom. With your comment i assume you have never ordered one from the third party sellers. Ive already been through all that and thats why I've been criticising this company

LOL? Seems more you haven't checked the prices before buying. I bought Mi5S for 290US from gizchinashop. Go and check how much Xiaomi sell it in China! None of Xiaomi products I bought are doubled prices.

And im really getting sick of their propaganda. They tease the whole world at mwc then refuse to release their best products outside china!

Lawsuits are the reason. This company infringes on many pantents. Go to YouTube and see for yourself the real reason they're ignoring one of the largest markets on earth (USA) is because of the lawsuits. Go and search it, I promise.

They can sell their s**t only in China as long as they get their heads out of their asses and include European basebands.

Well, your comment is a s**t. Did you ever use Xiaomi's phones? No right? Their phones are equally good as with samsung and apple in a half price.

Obviously you did not use their phone when you are stating something like that. Yes, they are good,some of their device have great processing power, nice build quality and they are good for a price, but not as nearly as good iPhone or Galaxy S phones. I had 5 Xiaomi's devices (3 are still here around) a lot of other stuff, like speakers, headphones, characters, bands, drone...also many Chinese device that you never heard for, so i can tell you, there is always reason why are that devicea cheaper then "originals".

If turns out to be true,this phone will replace my htcm9 as I am looking for a new phone that I don't have to spend money on that much

Would be a legitimate successor to the Redmi Note 3 Pro. Improvements on the right spots, camera and display.

Exactly what I'm looking for to replace my Note 3 Pro. Powerful processor, more storage, more ram and bigger battery. The Note 4 doesn't do it for me. Hopefully it has international bands.
