When Xiaomi launched the Redmi Pro it was the company’s first device with dual main camera setup and is pretty much a mediocre overall, it too comes will a fairly capable decacore MediaTek chipset that mostly with lower performance scores than what Qualcomm could offer with their Snapdragon 6xx series chipset.

There were also rumors that Xiaomi might release a Snapdragon variant of the handset to fulfill customers demands but now it seems that Xiaomi will have to debunk current Redmi Pro update rumors as it might just have to release an all new handset with the Redmi Pro 2. What’s remarkable about the unreleased handset is that, it has addressed all the users complaints about the Redmi Pro with an all new direction as we supposed.

The Redmi Pro 2 was leaked recently with an image of the alleged device along with a few number of specs information which is entirely new to the series. If this turns out to be true, the Redmi Pro 2 will settle for the standard single camera module for its main camera as opposed to the one included on the current Redmi Pro. Though it may look like a step back, it’s actually an upgrade to as it will use a more powerful and capable Sony IMX362 sensor that includes a1/2.55 sensor with large 1.4m pixels with Dual Pixel Autofocus that works much like the one on the Galaxy S7.

It will also house a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 this time which will include a more capable GPU. It will come in two variants with a 4GB/64GB and a 6GB/128GB RAM and storage combos. Other features on the handset is also expected to be upgraded from the one found on the current Redmi Pro.

Though, the leak went out as early as this time, according to rumors, the handset is expected to become available in the market on the second quarter of this year. more likely towards on the same time as the first Redmi Pro went available in the market, presumably a year after the Redmi Pro went on sale.
