There have been rumors recently that Xiaomi is gearing up to launch a new handset. The company confirmed a couple of days ago that it’s holding a media event later this month and many expected that Xiaomi’s next Redmi handset is going to be unveiled at this event. Xiaomi has confirmed through a post on Weibo that it’s going to launch the Redmi Pro at its event on July 27th.
Xiaomi sent out the confirmation on Weibo which is China’s equivalent of Twitter. The name might throw off those who follow Xiaomi rumors because we have never heard of this device before and some now believe that this is just going to be the rumored Redmi Note 4 being launched under a different name.
The company hasn’t confirmed anything about the specifications of this handset but rumor has it that it’s going to feature a Helio X20 MT6796M chipset with 3GB RAM, and that there’s going to be another variant available that has a Helio X25 MT6796T processor from MediaTek coupled with 4GB of RAM.
No information has been leaked online yet concerned the pricing and availability of the Redmi Pro. We’ll have to wait until July 27th to find out for sure what this handset is all about.
