Xiaomi's large success last year was in large part due to the manufacturer's latest device lineup with successful handsets like the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Redmi Note and the Redmi 2. The latter is an extremely affordable device, priced at around $100. Xiaomi has realized its appeal and news has just surfaced that an upgraded version is already in the works. The original model is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC, has 8GB onboard memory, a 4.7-inch HD display, 1GB of RAM and even offers LTE connectivity.

The new improved version has popped-up on TENAA - the Chinese certification authority and it seems to be very similar to its predecessor, but with two very important changes. First of all the RAM has been bumped-up to 2GB, which is a lot more adequate on today's mobile scene. Storage is also doubled at 16GB, which is also a necessity given the growing requirements of a lot of apps.

Updated Xiaomi Redmi 2 makes the rounds at TENAA


Other than that the new Xiaomi Redmi 2 looks pretty much unchanged. It is equipped with the same set of cameras - an 8MP main shooter with LED flash and a 2PM front one. The device will probably ship with the same 4.4.4 KitKat OS as well, coupled with MIUI V6 on top.

If Xiaomi manages to keep the original tantalizing price tag the improved hardware might just rekindle the handset's popularity and prove to be a really smart move in terms of competing with rivals, like the Meizu m1 Mini, for example. With certification already passed the new Redmi 2 should hit consumer markets really soon and take its place among the premium Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro models to complete the company's current lineup.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Phablet First Look & Reviews || Specifications Latest tech news, gaming news, latest Smartphones, tablets and other new technology gadgets..Our official website is www.phonietech.com http://youtu.be/5wKUEZzSWKk New Oppo Mirror 3 Specifications Getting the specs out of the way first, Xiaomi Note Pro features a 1440x2560 pixels JDI panel, which would make it one with the enviable 515ppi pixel density. Not only that, but it is also blessed with the whopping 4 GB of RAM, and the highly-anticipated Snapdragon 810 chipset, making it an Android 5.0 64-bit powerhouse. Rounding up the great offering are a 13 MP rear Sony camera with optical image stabilization, and a 4 MP UltraPixel front-facer with large two micron pixels. Keeping the lights on will be a 3090 mAh of a battery pack, which is the only seemingly weak point of the phablet, unless the JDI display panel is really power-sipping. It's the Note Pro's design that is the most striking, though, as the phone sports an extremely thin body (which would explain the relatively small juicing capacity) and trimmed bezels for an all-around compact handset, regardless of the hearty screen diagonal. What's more, it comes with the very generous 64 GB storage out of the box. the Xiaomi Note Pro will cost you the equivalent of 3300 yuan, which is about $532 - not a bad pricing for a futureproof phablet with all the bleeding edge bells and whistles Subscribe for more tech videos.
