Xiaomi’s been trying to keep their Redmi Note 2 Pro under wraps for a long time, but clearly without much avail.
The Redmi Note 2 Pro has been the subject of many a leak already, and there’s another one that popped up earlier today. This time round, it’s the rear cover of the phone that managed to get spied upon.
The rear of the phone still reminds us of the Meizu (MX5, to be precise). But there’s a difference, and a major one at that — the Redmi Note 2 Pro packs a fingerprint sensor on the rear.
If that does happen to be the case, the Redmi Note 2 Pro will become Xiaomi’s first ever phone to have a fingerprint sensor. That is, if the Mi 5 doesn’t come out before that; it’d be a gruesome mistake to not have a fingerprint sensor on the Mi 5, so you can take that for granted.

As for the specifications, the Pro version of the Redmi Note 2 seems to be sharing most of its components with the ‘regular’ version. This includes a 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p display, a Helio X10 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera, and a 5 mega-pixel front facing camera.
The Redmi Note 2 Pro is believed to cost 1,099 Yuan or $170 in China. Xiaomi have a major event coming up (December 11th), which is probably when the Redmi Note 2 Pro will go live also.
