An image that's said to be a leaked promo for the Redmi Pro 2 has apparently revealed some key hardware specs of Xiaomi's upcoming Android phone. While the company was already believed to be working on a successor to its Redmi Pro phablet, latest developments suggest that the launch of the device may not be that far away. According to the image that's been circulating on the Chinese social media site Weibo, the upcoming Redmi Pro 2 will come with some nice improvements over its predecessor, the Redmi Pro that was launched last year by the Chinese tech giant and sported some interesting features like a dual camera setup at an affordable price tag. However, if the leak does turn out to be authentic, that is one hardware feature buyers of the Redmi Pro 2 will have to do without.
Xiaomi has apparently done away with the second camera sensor and instead opted to go with a single 12-megapixel Sony IMX362 sensor which features the Dual Pixel autofocus technology. The image seems to reveal a few other hardware specs of the upcoming device as well, including the digits "660" preceded by a few Chinese characters at the top of the mini spec sheet. It will be interesting to see if that refers to the Snapdragon 660 which is expected to be the most powerful mid-range chip Qualcomm will release this year. The original Redmi Pro shipped in two different versions powered by either the Helio X20 or the Helio X25 chip, depending on the model.
As for the upcoming device, the rest of its alleged spec sheet seems pretty self-explanatory. The Redmi Pro 2 will apparently be powered by a massive 4,500mAh battery and ship in two variants with different combinations of RAM and internal storage. While the base version will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, the more premium model will apparently incorporate 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The former will cost 1,599 yuan ($230) while the latter will sport a slightly bigger, 1,799 yuan ($260) price tag. The device still doesn't have a release date, but more information will hopefully be available shortly.
