Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is one of the most popular smartphones in China that has sold more than 5 million units in less than a month of its launch. The smartphone is sold at a price tag of $150, a great deal for the specs that the Redmi Note 2 offers. Xiaomi seems to be bringing premium features to affordable smartphones. The Chinese company is planning to launch another handset in the similar price range.
The Redmi Note 2 Pro is yet another mid-range smartphone with premium build, according to images leaked by Chinese blog Mobile-Dad. Unlike its previous version, the Redmi Note 2 Pro features a full metal body and a fingerprint scanner on the back side, right under the camera and the LED flash.
In terms of specifications, the Redmi Note 2 Pro is pretty much the same as the Redmi Note 2 with some premium features in the Pro version. The new Pro version of the Redmi Note 2 could sport a 5.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display with 1080p full HD resolution and a 3,060 mAh battery.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro is likely to be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core with MediaTek MT6795 processor, a PowerVR G6200 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The phone could have a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, an LED flash and video recording while in the front camera is expected to be a 5-megapixel selfie camera. It is likely to have a inbuilt storage of 32GB expandable memory that can be increased to 128 GB via microSD card.
However, there is no update on whether or not Xiaomi will provide updates to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It is rumoured that the the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro should be announced at any time in December, though there is no official word as of yet.
