You generally think about 2 cameras in any latest smartphones, one front camera for taking selfies and one rear camera for taking regular photos and videos. But here is a game changer in Xiaomi Redmi Pro. In this smartphone, Xiaomi is introducing total 3 cameras, one camera in the front and the other two cameras in the back. The front camera is having 5 megapixels lens for taking selfies. You can expect selfie with good quality.
In the back, there are two cameras, the upper one is for picture shooting purpose which is having 13MP lens and the below camera is for detecting the distance of the objects from the camera which is having 5 MP lens. With the help of the combination of these two cameras, you will able to shoot excellent images with extremely good and soft bokeh effect. Xiaomi is claiming that the effect of bokeh you can click on Redmi Pro can be compared with any image taking with a DSLR camera. The camera software also comes with some features like Face Beauty, Face Detection, HDR, and the Panorama Shot.
4) Battery & Pricing:
The battery used in Redmi Pro is a lithium-ion polymer with a huge capacity of 4050mAh. This is an inbuilt non-removable type battery.

As per initial review of all features and specification of Xiaomi Redmi Pro, it is looking quite attractive. Xiaomi lovers are already buzzing on this. As per my understanding, the main selling points of this phone will be the huge battery capacity, the dual camera at the back of the phone and the great 5.5 inches screen. I will surely keep an eye on this phone to see how it will give competition to other flagships phones of Samsung, HTC or Sony.
