The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro has apparently cleared the TENAA certification, which is the FCC-counterpart in China. In the process, configuration details, design and price have been revealed.
Initially, it was rumored that the Redmi Note 2 Pro is an upgraded version of the current-generation Redmi Note 2. By taking a look at the configurations, it is clear that the aforesaid devices carry same specifications. However, the upcoming Xiaomi handset will reportedly flaunt a metallic build, in addition to a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
Spec-wise, Gizmo China said, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro will feature a 5.5-inch display and 1,080 x 1,920 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, the device will apparently come powered by a MediaTek MT6795 Helio X10 chipset, working in tandem with an octa-core CPU, clocked at 2.0 GHz. Even though, the leaked specifications point to a 2 GB RAM configuration, a 3 GB variant is a possibility, according to Phone Arena.
A 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel snapper at the front for selfies have been reported to be part of the device. When it comes to memory, the handset is believed to come equipped with 16 GB of built-in storage space.
It is worth noting that the fingerprint scanner will be housed on the back of the handset beneath the camera unit, unlike other high-end devices where the sensors are embedded on the home button. The handset apparently has a powerful 3,060 mAh battery cell to keep the lights on. On the software front, Android 5.0.1 Lollipop will run the device, out of the box.
Speaking of price, the upcoming device will reportedly set the buyers back by roughly $172. Nevertheless, readers are advised to take the reported Redmi Note 2 Pro specifications and price with the proverbial pinch of salt as Xiaomi has not confirmed any information so far.
