Here are the key features of the smartphone:

1) Dual camera setup

Xiaomi is using the dual camera setup as the selling point of the Redmi Pro. It sports a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor with a 5-lens module, an f/2.0 aperture, PDAF autofocus and supports dynamic depth of field, coupled with a 5-megapixel Samsung sensor for the secondary depth-sensing camera. The front snapper is of 5 megapixels with an 85 degree wide angle lens.

2) Design

Two speaker grilles are featured at the bottom and a USB Type C port. The home button comes integrated with a fingerprint scanner and the 3.5 mm audio jack at the top.

3) Mediatek Helio X25 Processor

Xiaomi claims that deca-core processor makes the Redmi pro "the most powerful Redmi ever". Xiaomi Redmi Pro is powered by the 2.5GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio X25 SoC, coupled with a Mali-T880 GPU, that's available on the 4GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, while the 3GB RAM + 64GB storage variant has the same processor clocked at 2.3GHz.

4) Price

The price of Xiaomi Redmi Pro, with the smartphone packing all these powerful features, is a delight. With Redmi Pro, Xiaomi keeps the decent pricing tradition alive and offers three variants at pocket-friendly price points. The Helio X20 (3GB RAM + 32GB storage) is priced at CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs 15,100), the Helio X25 (3GB + 64GB) variant is priced at CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs 17,100), and the Helio X25 (4GB + 128GB) variant is priced at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 20,200).
