Xiaomi has unveiled the Redmi Pro with flagship grade internals. The company claims that it is the most powerful device in the entire Redmi series of smartphones. The price of the phone ranges from RMB 1499 or about Rs. 15,000 for the lowest variant to RMB 1999 or around Rs. 20,000 for the top-end version.
