Xiaomi Note 2 Pro TechTurismo

Xiaomi is holding a launch event on Tuesday, 24th November where the company is expected to reveal the new Redmi Note 2 Pro. The company has been showcasing the handset in continuous teasers.

Now, Xiaomi has shared a new teaser possibly showing the next-generation Mi Pad 2, as well as a fresh teaser for the Redmi Note 2 Pro.


Bin Lin, Co-Founder and President, Xiaomi, has shared an image on Weibo showing the sides of the Mi Pad 2 tablet that is now expected to be showcased at the company’s Tuesday event alongside the Redmi Note 2 Pro. The teaser image appears to confirm that the Mi Pad 2 tablet will feature a metal body. Considering that the first generation MiPad (First Impressions) tablet did sport a plastic build, we will have to wait for the launch event for confirmation.

Earlier this week, the company also shared an image of the Redmi Note 2 Pro. Xiaomi has already confirmed that the Redmi Note 2 Pro will feature a metallic body and fingerprint scanner. The company in its teaser images has shown the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro sporting a circular camera lens at the back followed by a dual-tone flash below and a circular fingerprint sensor placed below it. It also showed the metal-clad smartphone in gold color.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Pro was recently spotted in a Tenaa listing. As per the listing, the smartphone will likely feature MediaTek’s MT6795 Helio X10 processor, a 5.5-inch full-HD display; 2GB of RAM, 16GB of inbuilt storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 5.0 Lollipop with Xiaomi’s MIUI on top, and pack a 3060mAh battery. It also adds that the Redmi Note 2 Pro will measure 149.9×75.9×8.7mm and weigh 165 grams. The Redmi Note 2 Pro is tipped to share the same specifications as the Redmi Note 2. The only difference would be an inclusion of a fingerprint sensor and a metal build. The device will likely be priced at around $175 which is highly affordable considering the fact that it sports a metallic build and a fingerprint scanner.

Update: According latest news, Mi Pad2 and probably Xiaomi’s First Smartwatch too will be launched on November 24, along with Redmi Note 2 Pro
