Update: Xiaomi won’t be bringing Redmi Note 2 Prime afterall. Looks like the company is bringing in another upgraded variant of Redmi Note 4G
Update 10, Dec 2015 – Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime has now been listed on Amazon, which almost confirms its arrival.
Xiaomi is likely to launch is much awaited Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 or Note 2 Prime in India. With pending patent infringement law-suit from Ericsson, the Chinese manufacturer was barred from selling its MediaTek chipset powered portfolio in India, but a recent patent licensing agreement between Xiaomi and Qualcomm has reportedly removed all roadblocks.
Latest social media teaser from Mi India hints that Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 might be heading to India and most likely on Tuesday, 15th December. The handset in the image below certainly looks like Redmi Note 2, but Redmi Note 3 with fingerprint sensor would have been a more exciting option at this point of time.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is the successor of Redmi Note 4G in India. The handset includes a 5.5 Inch full HD display and is powered by 2.2 GHz MediaTek Helio X10 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB/32GB internal storage. The handset also includes capable camera hardware, 4G LTE support and Infrared sensor.
