Xiaomi is rumored to launch the successor to last year’s Mi Note that came with flagship specifications. There are many rumors about the Mi Note 2 from the last few months. It is said to be the first Mi smartphone to feature dual curved display and dual rear camera setup, but recently the company launched the Redmi Pro with dual rear cameras. Today, the leaked front panel of the upcoming Mi Note 2 confirms the device to feature dual curved display.
As we said earlier, Xiaomi is expected to launch Redmi 4 on August 25th in China and we expect the Mi Note 2 to be launched on that day. While other rumors suggest the device to be launched on September 5th. Along with curved display variant, there will also be a flat screen variant of Mi Note 2. While the curved display comes with Quad HD resolution, the flat display will be limited to just Full HD resolution.
It comes in two variants with 4GB and 6GB of RAM and will be available in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. Under the hood will be the latest Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor which offers 10% better performance than the Snapdragon 820. Even Samsung will be launching their latest flagship Galaxy Note 7 with 6GB RAM exclusively in China, it might also come with Snapdragon 821 SoC. The device will be backed by a 3600mAh battery and supports QuickCharge 3.0 for fast charging.
Unlike the earlier flagship Xiaomi devices, the upcoming Mi Note 2 comes with metal build unibody. Even the Redmi 4 that will be launched later this month also sports an all metal body. Talking the device, the 4GB RAM variant of Mi Note 2 with 64GB storage will be priced at 2499 Yuan (approx $375 / Rs. 25,000) while the 6GB RAM variant with 128GB storage costs 2799 Yuan (approx $420 / Rs. 28,000).
From the leaked image, we can see the Mi logo on the top left corner and comes with an oval shaped home button which also houses the fingerprint sensor. The 6.44-inch Mi Max and the Redmi Pro missed the front Mi logo which is now back with the Mi Note 2. The official launch date will be announced in the next couple of weeks.
