Remember the touted Snapdragon 675-powered Xiaomi phone? Well, rumors say it could be the Redmi Pro 2, a direct successor to 2016's Redmi Pro. The Redmi Pro 2, if released, would be the top of the line Redmi phone.

There have been rumors of a new Xiaomi phone in the works. The device is expected to be powered by the new Snapdragon 675 and also to feature Sony’s new 48 MP IMX586 sensor that is slowly making its way unto a number of smartphones. According to word on the grapevine, that Xiaomi phone could very well be the Redmi Pro 2.

Xiaomi released the Redmi Pro two years ago and failed to follow it up with a successor last year. Finally coming up with a sequel will be sure to make fans of the original phone happy. For some context, the Redmi Pro was the top of the line Redmi device at the time. It was the first Xiaomi phone with two rear cameras and was powered by the Helio X20, MediaTek’s premium SoC at the time.

The purported Redmi Pro 2 will attempt to build on that and while we don’t know much about it, the rumors of a 48 MP camera and Snapdragon 675 would make it the best-specced Redmi phone on offer. A Redmi Pro 2 would likely be priced under US$250, providing an ideal option for those not looking to shell out US$100 more for the Mi 8.
