TENAA certification for Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro makes the rumor mill happy
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro has been certified in China by regulatory agency TENAA. The rumor mill had been all over this device, leaking out pictures of the back plate, which turned out to match the official TENAA image. In addition, the speculation was that the Redmi Note 2 Pro would have the same specs as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, but with a metal build and a fingerprint scanner. And that is exactly what the TENAA certification reveals.

That means that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro carries a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The MediaTek MT6795 Helio X10 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside (although a variant with 3GB is possible), along with 16GB of native memory. A 13MP snapper adorns the back of the unit, and the 5MP camera in front takes selfies and handles video chats. A fingerprint scanner is located on the rear of the phone, under the camera.

Powering the Redmi Note 2 Pro is a 3060mAh battery. The device is .5mm thicker than the Redmi Note 2 at 8.75mm, and is a little heftier than the original model. Android 5.0.1 is pre-installed. The phone is expected to sell for the equivalent of $172 USD. At that price, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro would be quite a bargain.

We still await the unveiling of the handset. At that time, Xiaomi will give us the official pricing and availability.


Thanks for the tip!

I had a few of these chinese phones, very cheap for all their nice features. But after a few months, or even only weeks, they all break down and nobody can fix them. Waste of money.

That isn't the case with Xiaomi, they hace nice craftsmanship, or at least on par with LG & Samsung as far as I hace experiencia with the brand, and plenty of cheap parts are available, for example, the LCD frame assembly for my redmi note 2 is around $30 (Hope I never need one, although I have dropped ny phone various times #nocase lol). Maybe that could be the case with crappier brands like thl or those unbranded things that you can find in any flea market in mainland China.

Xiaomi Phones and Typical Chinese Phones. They both are two different things...

Xiaomi is top quality brand. Who says the contrary? *sigh*

Hmm, why is this a bit familiar to me? Oh, I remember. This is the exact same design, as the Meizu phones' (excluding the fingerprint sensor). This is a bit awkward from Xiaomi IMO... But I'm looking forward to it
