Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 with Helio X25 SoC and 3GB RAM spotted at Geekbench


There has been a lot of buzz regarding the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 lately. The phone was initially believed to come with either a Snapdragon 660 or a Helio P25 processor. But now, a recent Geekbench listing, putting these rumours to rest, suggests that the Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 will come powered by a Helio X25 processor instead.


The listing further reveals a combination of a 1.5GHz deca-core MediaTek Helio MT6797T processor paired with 3GB of RAM in the works for this device. The phone boots Android 6.0 Marshmallow with MIUI 8 on top of it. Additionally, it will come with a 5.5-inch display with 2.5D curved glass. The phone is said to come with 64GB of internal storage.

The Redmi Pro 2 might feature a 12-megapixel dual camera setup at the rear. The base variant is rumoured to be priced at CNY 1,599 (approximately ₹15,000). However, some also believe that a 6GB RAM variant with 128GB of internal storage might be launched alongside the base variant. The 6GB RAM variant is said to be priced CNY 1,799 (approximately ₹17,000).

As of now, the company has not scheduled any events, but the smartphone is rumoured to debut this month. Also, do note that although the benchmark listing mentions the device to come with a Helio X25 SoC, going by the company’s track record, it wouldn’t be far fetched to believe that the company could have a Snapdragon variant for the global release. However, we’ll have to wait until we get an official confirmation on the same. Stay tuned.
