The Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro handset has recently reached the FCC, showing signs that it’s going to be released in USA at some point the near future. We’ve previously heard that Xiaomi was going to expand overseas, especially when The Wall Street Journal interviewed a Xiaomi official who made that claim.
The Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro is a 4.7 inch handset with a 720p display, a Snapdragon 410 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. It also has a 2200 mAh battery, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 4G LTE support. Pricing is said to be at around $110 and up for this model. The unit that appeared at the FCC has support for LTE bands 2, 4 and 7, meaning it would easily work on AT&T and T-Mobile’s US networks.
We should probably also mention that not every phone that gets submitted to the FCC also goes on sale in USA. Last we heard, this product had Android 4.4 KitKat on board with MIUI 6 on top, an 8 MP main camera and a front 2 MP shooter. The design here involves a colorful matte plastic case targeted to the young folks.
