The launch of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 2 Pro is imminent. So far we’ve heard an abundance of specification and design rumors, and we even recently saw the upcoming handset pass through China’s TENAA a few days ago. Now we’re getting yet another form of speculation, this time in the form of a teaser image posted to Xiaomi’s Weibo account.

The teaser image features the words ‘Grand Finale’ in Chinese at the top, as well as a launch date of Tuesday, November 24th at the bottom. The festivities are scheduled to take place at the Beijing National Convention Center, according to My Drivers. It should be noted that the image doesn’t specifically mention the Redmi Note 2 Pro, though we’re still pretty certain that the teaser image is referencing the rumored device.

The Redmi Note 2 Pro will feature a smooth metal body design with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is a first for Xiaomi. It will weigh approximately 165 grams compared to the Redmi Note 2’s 160 grams. It will also feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek Helio X10 (MT6795) processor, 2GB of RAM, 16 gigabytes of on-board storage, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and a big 3060mAh battery. These may not seem quite like “pro” specifications at first glance, but for a rumored price of around just $172, we’d say the phone will be well worth it.

We’ll be sure to update you as we learn more about this new device.
