Xiaomi is reportedly gearing up to release the high-end Redmi Note 2 Pro smartphone. This device was earlier rumored to come with a full-metal design and a fingerprint scanner. Now, a fresh report from the U.K. has confirmed that the upcoming handset has been certified in China.

Not long ago, Huawei trumped Xiaomi to become the top selling device maker in China. Needless to say, the pressure to get back the lost ranking is making Xiaomi bring out the best. The heavily-rumored Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro smartphone has been 3C certified in China, Times News UK reported.

Meanwhile, according to Tech Times, the all-metal Xiaomi device could come as several variants. This claim has been corroborated further by the latest report from Times News UK pointing to three certified models of the upcoming device, including 2015617, 2015611 and 2015056.

As far as the Redmi Note 2 Pro specifications go, the handset will reportedly feature a huge 5.5-inch display, packed with a Full HD resolution of 1080p. This translates to a pixel density of 401 ppi.

A MediaTek MT6795 chipset with an octa-core processor is believed to be powering the device. Plus, the graphics side of things will apparently be handled by PowerVR G6200 GPU and the device will come backed by 2 GB of RAM.

Furthermore, the handset will apparently come equipped with 32 GB of native storage capacity and microSD card slot for further expansion. A solid 13-megapixel rear-facing camera unit and a 5-megapixel selfie clicker have also been rumored to be part of the device.

This high-end smartphone will reportedly house a good 3,060 mAh battery cell. China’s Mobile-Dad, meanwhile, stated recently that a fingerprint scanner will be located at the back of the handset, beneath the camera unit.

Unlike the entry-level Redmi Note 2, the upcoming Note 2 Pro will apparently be expensive. Plus, the expected Redmi Note 2 Pro release date has been pegged for November, according to Times News UK.
