For camera optics, the Redmi Pro will feature a dual-camera setup at the back and a 5MP selfie snapper in front. The camera array at the back works a lot like the one on the HTC One M8, consisting of a 13MP Sony IMX 258 unit or capturing still images and a 5MP Samsung camera to capture depth information.

This way you can capture your image first then adjust the depth of field (DoF) later thanks to hardware level DoF processing. Xiaomi claims that this can give you DSLR-quality bokeh and even compared it to a Canon 5DSR.
