The successor to the Redmi Pro 2 is reportedly still slated for a launch this month for as low as 1600 Yuan or 215 Euros. The Redmi Pro series is notable for incorporating dual rear cameras on an entry-level device.

The original Redmi Pro was one of the most inexpensive budget smartphones last year with dual rear cameras. According to sources close to MyDrivers, the upcoming Redmi Pro 2 will continue this trend with two identical 12 MP rear cameras. Additionally, Xiaomi could be upgrading the processor from the Helio X20 to the X25 with 4 GB RAM/64 GB eMMC and 6 GB RAM/128 GB eMMC variants. The lower-end 4 GB model is expected to launch for 1600 Yuan or about 215 Euros while the higher-end model could retail for 1800 Yuan or about 245 Euros.

The source is also pointing to a launch date later this month, though likely only in Asian territories for now. The Chinese manufacturer specializes in a wide range of smartphones from the very cheap budget end with the Redmi 4A to the mid-range Mi Max or Mi Note series. Like many smartphones from mainland China, the Redmi series is aggressively priced and may be even cheaper and more powerful this year when Xiaomi releases its Surge S2 SoC.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
