Xiaomi splits its smartphones into two families: the Mi line of phones tend to have flagship-level specs, while Redmi phones are typically budget models with a few premium touches.

But the company’s latest phone blurs the lines a bit: the Xiaomi Redmi Pro features a 5.5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel OLED display, a fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras, a USB Type-C prot, and a 4,050 mAh battery.

The Redmi Pro i launching in China for 1,499 yuan ($225) and up.

The phone is powered by a MediaTek deca-core processor and the entry-level model features a Helio X20 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The dual cameras on the back of the phone include a 13MP Sony IMX258 camera and a 5MP Samsung camera for capturing depth information.

Xiaomi also offers a 3GB/64GB model with a faster Helio X25 chip and a version with 4GB of memory and 128GB of storage. Even that top-of-the-line model is only 1,999 yuan, or about $300. While the phone is fairly expensive for a Redmi model, it’s still pretty cheap for a phone with that kind of hardware.

The Xiaomi Redmi Pro feature dual SIM support, an IR blaster that lets you use the phone s a TV remote, fast charging, and a 5MP front-facing camera. You can also use one of the SIM card slots for a microSD card if you don’t need dual SIM support.
