Not long ago, Xiaomi’s power-packed Redmi Note 2 Pro got certified by China’s TENAA rating agency. Now, a teaser believed to be an official one points to the exact launch date in November.
Configurations revealed by TENAA and several other rumors clearly give an idea of what to expect from the new device, which is the upgraded version of the Redmi Note 2. The handset will reportedly come with a metallic body and a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
Spec-wise, the Redmi Note 2 Pro is rumored to feature a 5.5-inch display, aided by a Full HD screen resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. Under the hood, a MediaTek MT6795 Helio X10 chipset with an octa-core processor is believed to power the device.
The leaked report also said there will be two variants of the Redmi Note 2 Pro. One of them will carry a 2 GB RAM configuration, while the other will apparently flaunt a 3 GB unit. The handset will come equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage capacity and microSD card slot for further expansion.
When it comes to camera specification, the smartphone will reportedly sport a 13-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel selfie-clicker at the front. On the software front, Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will run the handset, out of the box. A solid 3,060 mAh battery cell is reported to be part of the device, Phone Arena reported.
As far as the price goes, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro packed with 2 GB of RAM will reportedly set the buyers back by as low as $172.
Meanwhile, the flagship Xiaomi Mi 5 has been one of rumor mill’s favorite topics for a long time now. But then, there is no credible information available to pin point the launch date, even though the configuration details have cropped up time and again. Needless to say, the expectation of the Mi 5 getting introduced alongside the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro is quite strong.
