Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is expected to be announced soon. Now, a leaked teaser image spotted on Android Pure suggests the device might launch on September 24. The teaser image has Xiaomi Mi Note 2 written on the top and 9.24 written in a smaller text at the bottom. The image also has Xiaomi’s logo at right hand corner. In a separate set of leaks, a Weibo user posted a picture of what could be Mi Note 2 along with its specifications and launch date. But the launch date mentioned here is September 14. Xiaomi has not made an official announcement regarding its new device yet.
Earlier reports have given out specifications of Xiaomi Mi Note 2. The smartphone is said to feature a dual curved display and a 5.5-inch OLED screen. The device will launch in two variants based on display resolution: 2K and 1080p. Mi Note 2 is reported to run on Snapdragon 821 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The highlight of Mi Note 2 is the dual rear camera set-up, which was leaked in official renders. The smartphone will come with a metal unibody design. Xiaomi is reportedly dropping external memory support for Mi Note 2. Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will support QuickCharge 3.0 for fast charging. The front home button will double up as fingerprint scanner. According to Phoneradar, Mi Note 2 will cost 2,799 Yuan (approximately Rs 28,000).
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 rumours suggest a high-end device in the making. But we’re not sure if Mi Note 2 will be made available in India as Xiaomi seldom brings its high-end smartphones to the country. For example, Xiaomi Mi Note 2’s predecessor – Mi Note – was restricted to China.
However, the company has been very active recently in bringing its products to India; and most of these include budget devices. Xiaomi has launched a slew of products, with the most recent being Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime. Premium offerings include Mi Max and Mi 5.
