The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has been leaking out for months at this point. Some people were expecting this phablet to land back in Q1 this year, but that did not happen, instead, the company will introduce it in the fourth quarter of the year. A rumor earlier today suggested that LG will be supplying Xiaomi with curved OLED panels for the Mi Note 2 handset, and the company’s CEO recently teased the arrival of this phablet. That being said, we did not have an idea when will this phone land, well, until now, read on.
The company has just confirmed that the Mi Note 2 will be announced on October 25th, and they’ve done that through a popular Hong Kong actor, Tony Leung. It seems like Mr. Leung is Xiaomi’s official spokesperson for the event, as he has not only confirmed that the Mi Note 2 will be landing on October 25th through his Weibo (Chinese social network) page, but has also confirmed that the phone will sport a curved display. Mr. Leung did not exactly right out say that the Mi Note 2 will arrive with a curved panel, but Weibo provided us with that information as Mr. Leung has shared the post using the Mi Note 2, as you can see in the image down below. Xiaomi will host this event in Beijing, as we could have guessed. There you have, the Mi Note 2 will be announced on October 25th, and the rumors / leaks will finally stop.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch curved AMOLED display, 6GB of RAM and more than one internal storage variant. This phablet will be fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor, just like the Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus. We do expect this phone to be made out of metal and glass, and you can expect to see a front-facing fingerprint scanner on this smartphone. Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow will quite probably come pre-installed on the Mi Note 2, and the company’s MIUI 8 OS will be available on top of Google’s offering. That is more or less it, October 25th is the day, though we will probably see more leaked content before Xiaomi announces the device, so stay tuned.
