Teaser for Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro calls for the phone to be introduced on November 24th?

Just a few days ago, we told you that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro had been certified by Chinese regulatory agency TENAA. The specs revealed by TENAA confirmed the speculation that the Redmi Note 2 Pro is essentially the same phone as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, except with a metal-clad body and a fingerprint scanner.

The certification by TENAA brought the Redmi Note 2 Pro one step closer to being launched. And if a teaser that surfaced today is legit, we now have a date when we can expect the phone to be officially introduced by Xiaomi. The teaser shows November 24th as the likely date when the device becomes official. The festivities will take place at the Beijing National Convention Center.

The rumored specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the MediaTek MT6795 SoC, carrying an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU. This is a true octa-core CPU, with all eight Cortex-A53 cores running together There should be two different models, one with 2GB of RAM, and the other sporting 3GB of the sweet stuff. 16GB of internal memory is inside.

The rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP, with a 5MP snapper in front to shoot selfies and handle video chat. The fingerprint scanner on back is the first to be found on a Xiaomi handset, and a 3060mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 5.0.2 is installed out of the box. And while it is apparently true that the difference between the Redmi Note 2 and the Redmi Note 2 Pro is the latter's metal build and fingerprint scanner, the Pro model is also .5mm thicker.
