Redmi Pro Confirmed To Have Presence of Deca-core SoC
It’s official now, Xiamoi’s Redmi Pro will feature a Deca-core processor. Xiaomi released a new teaser for its flagship Redmi smartphone, ahead of the device’s launch next Wednesday. According to the teaser, the Redmi Pro will in fact, as rumored before, feature a Deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 chipset to deliver amazing performance.
The teaser was originally posted on the Chinese social networking site Weibo by Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun. The image shown simply states that the device will be using Helio X25 SoC while another post revealed that the Redmi Pro will indeed be the flagship device of Xiaomi’s Redmi lineup.
Xiaomi had earlier this week confirmed that Redmi Pro will be launching at an event in Beijin, China on 27th July and then proceeded to tease the presence of a deca-core processor and an OLED display for the device.
Not a whole lot besides these bits of information is known about Redmi Pro. There have been however many rumors. Some of those suggest that the phone will feature a metal unibody design.
In terms of features, according to the rumors the smartphone will have dual rear cameras, 3-4GB of RAM and a fingerprint scanner on the home button, similar to Apple and Samsung devices.
Lei Jun also recently confirmed that the company has managed to sell 1.5 million units of Mi Max, the company’s phablet which was launched only two months ago. The 1.5 million units shipped figure came from analyst Kevin Wang on Chinese social network Weibo, and his post reposted by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun – pretty much confirming the credibility of the number.
Wang also reported that similar phablet/large sized devices in 2015 saw a maximum of 300,000 units being shipped.
Xiaomi also announced some new devices to further take the smartphone market by storm (not that they needed this push) including a new phablet, Mi Note 2.
