Towards the beginning of July, Xiaomi?s new handset dubbed ?Redmi Note 4? cropped up. However, the latest news is that the Chinese tech giant has reportedly renamed this device to ?Xiaomi Redmi Pro? instead.
The credible Russian tipster?Mobiltelefon, which has a history of getting the info right, asked fans to mark July 27 as the Xiaomi Redmi Pro release date. This news has been confirmed based on a slew of visits made by a device of the same name to Geekbench benchmark site.
The same benchmark site says the Redmi Pro smartphone will come powered by a MediaTek MT6797M chipset that works in tandem with a deca-core processor. The internal configurations will be backed by a good 3GB of RAM. Software-wise, without a doubt, Android 6.0 Marshmallow will run the device out of the box.
Apart from this base version,?Xiaomi will be offering a high-end variant of the Redmi Pro as well. This model is believed to come powered by a Helio X25 MT6797T SoC under the hood. Xiaomi has also increased the RAM size to 4GB.
Speaking of benchmark score, the base model of the Redmi Pro reportedly amassed 1,218 points in the single-core test of Geekbench, while the multi-core score stood at 4,183 points. The high-end version, on the other hand, apparently scored 1,845 points in the single-core and 5,012 points in the multi-core tests. It?s definitely not a bad score for an upper-mid-range device with an affordable price tag.
Spec-wise, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is believed to feature a 5.5-inch display and 16GB of native storage space.
Recently, an alleged image leaked out of nowhere showing a rear-facing dual-camera setup. The LED flash was located in-between the two camera sensors. And the logo of the company was not in the center but below the camera unit.
To top it off, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro photo showed curved corners, guaranteeing good grip. Overall, the handset in white hue looked stunning, neat and very stylish. Here?s the leaked image from My Drivers:
