While we were expecting it to be called the
Redmi Note 2 Pro all this while, turns out the new Xiaomi smartphone -
which is scheduled be unveiled at an event on November 24 in China -
will instead be called the Redmi Note 3.
This was revealed by Xiaomi itself in a teaser
image (shown above) posted on its official Weibo account. So, we'll see the
successor to the Redmi Note 2 smartphone - which was released back in
August this year - being made official tomorrow.
Xiaomi President Lin Bin also recently posted
a teaser image of the device on his Weibo account, revealing a metal
design and fingerprint sensor on the back.
From what is
known till now, the handset will be powered by MediaTek's MT6795 (Helio X10)
chipset, and sport a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) display. It will come in
2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB memory configurations and feature a 5MP/13MP camera
combo. Weighing in at 165.97g and measuring 49.98×75.96×8.75mm, the smartphone is
rumored to pack in a large 4,000mAh battery.
