Redmi Pro 2: Xiaomi’s next phone could feature 48-megapixel camera
Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 with 48-megapixel camera and Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor is expected to launch early next year. Here’s everything you need to know.
Xiaomi is working a new budget smartphone with 48-megapixel camera. Ahead of the official launch, Xiaomi has posted a bunch of teasers, revealing a few important details of the device.
Xiaomi President Lin Bin last week posted a photo of phone with "48MP camera" engraving right below the rear camera sensor. According to reports, Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 will also be the company's first smartphone to sport three rear cameras. One of the camera sensors is expected to support big 48-megapixel resolution.
Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro is also said to have a punch hole for selfie camera instead of the traditional boat-shaped or dewdrop notches.
It's not clear whether Xiaomi's new phone will have a 48-megapixel sensor or will rely on 'super pixel-like' mechanism where multiple photos are stitched together to deliver such high resolution.
