Xiaomi announced its first dual-camera phone in India will arrive in September. VP and Managing Director for India at the company Manu Kumar Jain tweeted the news, leaving followers guessing which device exactly will appear.
It will be either the new Xiaomi Mi 5X, announced two weeks ago, the flagship Xiaomi Mi 6 or the first Xiaomi dual-camera phone – the Redmi Pro.
Xiaomi Mi 6
Let’s have a quick rundown of the phones. The Xiaomi Mi 5X is the newest device of them all. It was announced at a fancy event and was presented with the MIUI 9, the latest user interface by Xiaomi. Its cameras are 12 MP – one with wide-angle lens and the other with a telephoto lens.
The Xiaomi Mi 6 is currently the flagship device for the company. It has a Snapdragon 835 chipset and more RAM than the Mi 5X. Its dual camera setup is 12 MP with f/1.8 lens and OIS and 12 MP with f/2.6 telephoto lens. It will get the MIUI 9 on August 11.
Xiaomi’s first dual camera phone the Redmi Pro
The last phone that technically might be is the Xiaomi Redmi Pro. It has one 13 MP lens with another with 5 MP sensor and f/2.0 lens, but due to its age of almost one year, we doubt this is the phone Manu Kumar Jain is talking about.
