The Mi Note 2 is Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship phablet. This device is expected to launch in the coming weeks as a direct successor to the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phablets which were introduced back in January last year. The Mi Note 2 has been leaking out for weeks now, and we’ve seen quite a few rumors as well. The latest Mi Note 2 leak surfaced yesterday, a screenshot containing Mi Note 2’s partial specifications. Well, today we have a new leak to share with you, yet another set of the alleged Mi Note 2 renders, read on.
Six new Mi Note 2 renders surfaced online, showing off a rather sleek-looking smartphone, even though they seem more like concept images rather than actual leaked renders, but we cannot confirm that. This handset does differ from the other leaks we’ve seen, it pictures a differently designed smartphone, but it still comes with a dual camera setup, a curved display and a physical home key below said display. The phone’s power / lock and volume rocker keys will be placed on its right-hand side, and interestingly enough, the ‘Mi’ logo is missing from this handset altogether, which is rather weird, and kind of makes us think that this leak is not legit. In any case, the 3.5mm headphone jack is placed on the top of this smartphone, and as you can see, the phone comes with a metal frame. The Type-C USB port is placed on the bottom of this smartphone, and it is flanked by two sets of speaker grills. The home button on these images is actually rectangular, and it’s quite large.
The Xiaomi MI Note 2 is rumored to ship in more than one variant, but the model of the phone pictured here (curved display unit) is expected to ship with a 5.5-inch or a 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB of RAM and either 64GB of 128GB of internal storage. The device will be fueled by either the Snapdragon 820 or 821 64-bit quad-core SoC, while Android 6.0 Marshmallow will probably come pre-installed on it, even though yesterday’s leak suggested that we might see Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Whatever the case might be, Xiaomi’s MIUI OS will ship on top of Google’s Android offering.
