Anonymous, 13 Mar 2017Well, this certainly sucks.Yeah, it does for some of us but hope the SD660 variant will follow soon afterwards.

That device was a surprise hit for mid-rangers because of its almost flagship performance (can be compared to QSD810). Helio P25 is a poor choice because the performance is much slower than the QSD650 (based on benchmarks and reviews of other devices).
I think many people that comment here is just Chinese hater or jealousy or Racism, post comment without basic of knowledge or evident. MTK midranger chipset is good enough and worth every penny, it can compete with SD. Myself have no worry for MTK midranger as long as it latest chipset, but for flagship class I prefer SD rather than MTK.
Pumpino, 13 Mar 2017I've been waiting for this phone since the specs were leaked in January. The SD 660 and decent... moreAnd just like that, my search for a suitable OPO replacement continues. Sigh... I really thought this could be the one :(
Maybe an international version?
sxperiaSP, 14 Mar 2017Redmi Pro 2 Pro will have snapdragon 660 :)you have any source or is that just your wish?
Firstly to the author and then to the all fun boys around hire. MTK P25 have a ARM Mali T880 MP2 not an MP4 & it is clocked up to 800~900MHz. It's on competitor to S625 & dose have a dual IPS & that will is where fun part stops compering both P25 & S625 to the S65x, S660 & X2x is retarded as those (P25 & S625) are lower grade mid range SoC's.
Totally not intended in this phone anymore.
I will always prefer Snapdragon because of better custom ROM support.
Wilto, 14 Mar 2017You are illiterate if you think they are equivalentNo i think P25 is better, because of my points. And i see you have no points. So your opinion have no weight at all.
I would take P25 over 650 honestly.
1) 16nm vs 28nm
2) DDR4x vs DDR3
3) 880MP4 vs 510 is not big difference
4) Difference in processor power is not that much probably
5) Better battery life for P25 most likely
6) P25 is cheaper.
pocopico, 13 Mar 2017P25 is a downgrade compared to X20/25. Helio X30 is a much more logic choice. It also matches ... moreNo. X20/25 has DDR3, P25-DDR4x dual channel, Both have 880MP4. But P25 is made 16nm, while other two on old 20nm. The difference in real time usage between the processors is not really noticeable, but p25 is better power eficient and better memory.
At first I interested and then... Helio P25? Nope.
SD660 or SD650 would be nice.
Kinda weird though when the Pro got X25 but Pro 2 got P25.
...and there goes Qualcomm... In other news, Chinese spyware ftw!
So after the mi5c being a downgrade over mi4c the redmi pro 2 is a downgrade over the original. Weird strategy. However the only good thing about the p25 is ultra fast ram.
