Already sold on a few markets as Redmi 2 Prime, this handset is now apparently heading for the US market.

Xiaomi has managed to sell over 3 million handsets in India since their debut on that market, a little over a year ago. A recent report published by The Wall Street Journal revealed that Xiaomi has plans to enter the US market and now we already hear about the Redmi 2 Pro showing up on the FCC website.

Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro already retails for about $110 USD in India, where it is known as Redmi 2 Prime. These are its highlights:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 4.7-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 8 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, dual micro SIM, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, micro USB
  • Battery: 2,200 mAh

According to the FCC documents, the Redmi 2 Pro should offer support for AT&T and T-Mobile's networks, featuring band 2, 4, and 7 LTE connectivity. While the sub-$200 USD area of the US Android smartphone market is pretty crowded, remains to see what the future holds for Xiaomi. In the end, they could even change their mind and enter the US market with another handset, but they could also avoid it completely. Nothing is official yet, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
