As we’re waiting for Xiaomi to announce their Mi 5 flagship which is due to arrive before the end of the year, we’re in for yet another smartphone announcement. The device in question is the Redmi Note 2 Pro, a smartphone which has been popping up all over the place lately. The Redmi Note 2 Pro is said to be the first ‘Redmi’ device to be made out of metal. This smartphone has been certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) quite recently, and the device’s back cover has surfaced yesterday as well.
That being said, the company has released a new teaser on their official Weibo (Chinese social network) account. This teaser, more or less, confirms that the Redmi Note 2 Pro will be launched on November 24th. The teaser points to a device launch for the said date, and judging by the amount of leaks we’ve seen in regards to the Redmi Note 2 Pro, it is almost certain that phone will be announced. Xiaomi will hold the event at the Beijing National Convention Center, so mark the date.
Now, according to TENAA, the Redmi Note 2 Pro will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The listing said that the device will be fueled by MediaTek’s Helio X10 (MT6795) 64-bit octa-core processor, and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will come pre-installed here with Xiaomi’s MIUI OS available on top of it. The 13-megapixel camera will be available on the back of this smartphone (along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash), and a 5-megapixel snapper will be located up front. TENAA’s listing has also revealed that the device will measure 149.9 x 75.9 x 8.75mm, while it will weight 166 grams.
How, we still don’t know how much will this device cost, but according to the recent leaked info, the Redmi Note 2 Pro will be priced at around 1,099 Yuan ($172) in China. There you have it, all we can do at this point is sit and wait for the company to unveil their newest mid-ranger.
