Xiaomi is going to host an event tomorrow (November 24th) in China.

Formerly known as Redmi Note 2 Pro, the device was renamed by Xiaomi following a teaser photo on Weibo.

According to rumors, the Redmi Note 3 will feature a 5.5-inch FullHD display, and is powered by an octa-core 2GHz Helio X10 processor. It packs 2GB or 3GB of RAM along with 16GB of internal storage. In the camera section, the phone gets a 13-megapixel primary camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter. Powering by a 3,060mAh battery, it includes several connectivity options including 4G LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.

On the build side the Redmi Note 3 is identical to its predecessor the Note 2 apart from having a metal unibody design and a fingerprint sensor on the rear side below the camera module. Weighing in at 165.97g and measuring 49.98×75.96×8.75mm, it is believed to be just 0.55 mm thinner than the Redmi Note 2.

It would be interesting to see whether an extraordinarily early launch in succession to the current Redmi Note 2, launched two months ago, would be a boon for the company as well as the potential consumers.
