The Redmi Pro 2 was supposed to be launched in March according to those in the know, but is yet to get an official unveiling a month later. A Weibo leak is now offering price details about the two possible configurations of the handset.
Chinese e-commerce site TaoBao seems to have listed the Redmi Pro 2 up for pre-orders. A couple of people appear to have signed up for the phone, even though it hasn’t been announced yet. No specs can be viewed at the moment.
Going by the screenshot, the standard Redmi Pro 2 will set buyers back by CNY 1599 (roughly $231 or Rs 15000) and the premium one at CNY 1799 (approx $260 or Rs 16900). This falls neatly in line with previous rumors about the handset.
Word on the street is that the base Redmi Pro 2 will be stuffed with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM and the higher-specced one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. Other features are likely to remain the same, including a possible MediaTek Helio P25 processor and dual 12MP cameras on the rear.
To recall, the original Redmi Pro had carried a 13MP and 5MP twin snapper system on its back. It’s more than likely Xiaomi wants to stick to the same functionality with the device’s sequel, perhaps enhancing it with some new features. The phone in the leak doesn’t have dual lenses, but that may be because the module is located towards the center like its predecessor.
