The highlight feature of the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is its dual rear camera setup, with a 13-megapixel Sony IMX258 sensor with a 5-lens module, an f/2.0 aperture and PDAF autofocus, coupled with a 5-megapixel Samsung (unspecified) sensor for the secondary depth-sensing camera. The dual-tone flash module sits between the two lenses. On the front, it bears a 5-megapixel camera with an 85-degree wide-angle lens and an f/2.0 aperture.
