Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi has today announced the latest model in its affordable Redmi line of smartphones. Looking at the device's body materials and specifications it would not look out of place in the company's flagship Mi series, though.
In the imaging department the Redmi Pro features a dual-camera setup that combines a 13MP Sony IMX258 1/3.06" sensor with a 5MP Samsung depth sensor. The dual-cam does not offer any optical zoom capability, like on the LG G5, nor does it combine the captured image information from both sensors for improved image quality, like on the Huawei P9. Instead, it uses the dual-camera to simulate the bokeh of a fast lens on a large-sensor camera, something we first saw on the HTC One M8. Like on the HTC and several other dual-cam devices, you can change the focus point of the image post-capture in the gallery app.
