Xiaomi is ditching the Redmi Pro 2 and decided to scrap the Redmi Pro Series as it didn’t do well in the market for the company. Now, according to a well-known China-based leakster who claims that Xiaomi is planning to release a new series of smartphones called Xiaomi X series. The first phone will be the Xiaomi X1 according to the leak. So, the new Xiaomi X series will replace the Redmi Pro Series and soon we won’t see another Redmi Pro smartphone from Xiaomi.

There are some details about the Xiaomi X1; the first X series smartphone. The Xiaomi X1 is said to come in two variants in two display sizes; the first variant will feature a 5.5 inches Pegasus display and the resolution would be 2160 X 1080 pixels.

The Xiaomi X1 will feature the Sony IMX362 or IMX386 dual camera setup which is going to be the second Xiaomi smartphone with the dual rear cameras setup. There will also be a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The Xiaomi X1 will have two variants; one with 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and the another with 6GB RAM + 128 GB ROM.

Both the variants are going to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC which is an octa-core chipset. The pricing of both variants is also leaked; the 4GB + 64GB model will be priced at 1,999 Yuan ($294), or 2,299 Yuan ($339) and the 6GB and 128GB high-end model is going to be priced at 2,499 Yuan ($368) or 2,799 Yuan ($412).

According to the price and specifications, these smartphones seems like a budget series, just like the Redmi Pro series.

It is also predicted that Xiaomi will be unveiling the Xiaomi X1 and MIUI at the same time this month.
