We have been hearing a lot about the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro version, mainly because it is rumored to be the first Xiaomi smartphone to feature fingerprint ID as well as all metal design. While until now, we had no concrete proof for these rumors (except for a leaked image), now thanks to a TENAA listing we can confirm these features.
According to the image that we spotted on TENAA, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro will come with the same design that we saw in the leaked image back in October. So, you have a smooth metal body at the back, along with a fingerprint sensor right below the rear camera. Between these two sensors, we can see dual LED flash as well.
The front features a traditional Xiaomi design with capactive buttons and a camera sensor right on top. The display is said to be a 5.5-inch panel with FHD resolution, same one as the Redmi Note 2.
The phone will feature the same specs as the Redmi Note 2, so it will sport the MT6795 Helio X10 under the hood clocked at 2.0GHz with 2GB RAM (3GB RAM version a possibility), 16GB storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front facing shooter and a 3060mAh battery. Given its metal design, the phone will measure 149.98 × 75.96 × 8.75 mm (slightly thicker than 8.25mm Note 2) and will weigh a bit more than the regular version at 165 grams. It will run on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OS.
Since it features the same specs as the original version, the new Redmi Note 2 Pro is said to be priced at around 1099 Yuan which comes to just $172. Not a bad deal with MT6795, fingerprint ID and 2GB RAM on board.
We expect the phone to release pretty soon, so stay tuned to gizmochina in the coming days for more details.
