The Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 Will Have A 48 MP Rear Camera
Xiaomi has shared teasers for an upcoming smartphone on Weibo. The teaser reveals that the smartphone will carry the “Pro 2” suffix. According to the teaser, the smartphone will feature the Snapdragon 675 SoC and a massive 48 MP camera. Earlier this month, Xiaomi President Lin Bin shared a photo of a smartphone that had a 48 MP rear camera and a report claims that it will be a Redmi device. The same report also claims that the upcoming Redmi smartphone will have an in-display cutout for the front-facing camera like the Samsung Galaxy A8s and Huawei Nova 4.
All the reports suggest that the upcoming smartphone is the Redmi Pro 2. It is the successor to the Redmi Pro which was launched back in 2016. The Pro suffix smartphones are the flagship devices for Xiaomi’s Redmi series and the same is expected from the Redmi Pro 2. Except for the camera and processor information, not many details of the Redmi 2 Pro are available. However, being the successor to the Redmi Pro, it is expected to have better specifications than the latter.
The Redmi Pro has a brushed aluminium back. The smartphone has wide top and bottom bezels. The bottom bezel houses the physical home button/fingerprint sensor and two capacitive touch buttons. The smartphone has a 72.2% screen to body ratio display.

Redmi Pro 2 Design
The Redmi Pro 2 is expected to have a similar design and build quality as its predecessor. However, the new phone will have narrower bezels and the company might move the fingerprint sensor to the rear of the device. Alternatively, the official specifications and design of the smartphone will only be available after its official launch.
Although the launch date of the Redmi Pro 2 has not been announced, it is expected to launch soon. Like the Redmi Pro, it is believed to be a sub $400 smartphone.
