Xiaomi Redmi Pro Sports China-Made Oled Panels: Report
Highlights
  • Chinese firm EverDisplay to make Oled displays for Redmi Pro
  • The second domestic company is called BOE
  • The Xiaomi Redmi Pro is priced starting at roughly Rs. 15,100

Xiaomi recently introduced the Redmi Pro in China, and the smartphone packs some flagship-worthy features.

Apart from the dual camera setup, the Xiaomi Redmi Pro is powered by a deca-core processor, offers 128GB inbuilt storage, and sports a 5.5-inch Oled display. Oled displays are much thinner, lighter, use less power and provide high colour gamut than LCD screens. They are also way more expensive than LCD screens, and that's why these displays are rarely ever seen on budget phones. However, Xiaomi used a neat alternative trick to ensure that the Redmi Pro sports an Oled display, while not compromising on its reasonable price point.

When an Oled display is introduced in a smartphone, it is presumed to be made by Samsung as it holds 95 percent of the market share. However, according to Xiaomi Today, the Chinese company took a different route and went to Chinese display makers to produce the display panel for the Redmi Pro. Xiaomi shipped the Redmi Pro Oled displays from two domestic companies called BOE and EverDisplay (Hui).

EverDisplay is reportedly the primary company responsible for supplying the Oled screens to Xiaomi, while BOE is secondary. Opting for a domestic tie-up instead of a global conglomerate looks to be proving to be cost effective for Xiaomi.

The Xiaomi Redmi Pro sports a full-HD Oled display with a pixel density of 342ppi, a 100 percent NTSC colour gamut, and 2.5D curved glass. The price of the smartphone in China is CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 15,100) for the 32GN variant; CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 17,100) for the 64GB variant; and CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,200) for the 128GB variant.
