Xiaomi has announced a ton of devices this year, and the latest two products that have been launched are the Redmi Note 3 smartphone, and the Mi Pad 2 tablet. These two devices were announced earlier this month during the ‘Grand Finale’ event. The naming of this event suggested that Xiaomi has no plans of making big announcements until the end of this year, but that doesn’t mean they won’t release a low or mid-range device(s) though. As you all probably know, Xiaomi ‘Kenzo’ popped up on Geekbench yesterday, and shared its partial specifications. We initially thought that might be the Redmi 3 handset, but it turns out it might be something else completely, read on.

Amazon India has revealed a rather interesting teaser recently which actually shares the ‘#PrimeIsComing’ caption, and above it is Xiaomi’s logo. That’s not all though, Xiaomi has also confirmed that they intend on releasing a ‘secret new product’ on December 15th. Now, some reports have been stating that this might be the Redmi Note 2 Prime, but according to the latest info, that’s not going to happen. Xiaomi looks set on launching a new devices, perhaps a new line of devices? Well, chances are that this phone will belong in the company’s ‘Redmi’ line of devices, and the Redmi 3 seems like a far-fetched idea at the moment due to the ‘Prime’ teaser.

The Geekbench listing which surfaced yesterday didn’t really share all that much info about the device, but we did get some specs out of it. According to the listing, Xiaomi ‘Kenzo’, a device which will probably be announced on December 15th, is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 617 64-bit octa-core processor. In addition to that, the phone will sport 2GB of RAM, and Android 5.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed on it with Xiaomi’s MIUI 7 OS available on top of it. That is pretty much everything we know thus far, Fonearena did share the possible Redmi Note 2 Prime specifications, but there’s no point in mentioning them considering that handset probably won’t be announced on December 15th, at least if the latest report is to be believed.
