Xiaomi Redmi Pro vs Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro: Everything compared

Xiaomi launched the much-awaited flagship Redmi Pro at a launch event on July 27 in China. Samsung is on a launching spree with the release of several variants under the Galaxy J series. Recently, the company launched Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro in India exclusively via Snapdeal. Do you want to wait till the release of Redmi Pro in India?

In this article, we will distil the features and specifications of both smartphones to help you in decision making.

Xiaomi Redmi Pro

As expected, Xiaomi launched Redmi Pro with dual cameras. The integration of dual camera was rumored before the official launch ever since a teaser image showcasing Redmi Celebrity surfaced on the web. He was seen holding the device with the dual cameras on the rear side. Redmi Pro features an OLED display instead of the IPS display, which is normally found on Redmi branded smartphones.

Dubbed to be power efficient, the display offers super high contrast ratio with 2.5D curved glass. Redmi Pro has been manufactured using an elegant brushed aluminum body paired with the ceramic fingerprint sensor. Redmi Pro is available in Helio X20 and Helio X25 processor variants with 3GB RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage variants.

We recommend Redmi Pro because it offers a large display with a power-efficient OLED display. It doesn’t make any sense to invest around Rs. 9890 for a smartphone with HD display when there is an availability of FHD displays around the same cost.

Moreover, the Redmi Pro offers enhanced battery with 4050mAh capacity, which is capable of delivering improved backup time. The smartphone also offers fingerprint sensor, which is missing in Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro.

If you would like to buy a new smartphone, it’s better to wait for the availability of Redmi Pro since the price difference of the standard variant will be only Rs. 5000. You will get a large display, enhanced performance and dual cameras at below Rs. 16,000.
