The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and Mi MIX are Xiaomi’s newest flagship phablets. Both of these devices were introduced by the company a couple of days ago in China, and while the Mi Note 2 was expected to land, the Mi MIX was not. The Mi Note 2 sports a curved display, similar to the Galaxy Note 7, while the Mi MIX comes with a bezel-less design, and looks gorgeous because of it. That being said, we have plenty of coverage on the site already, when it comes to both of these devices, but new info just keeps on coming. IT168 is a China-based tech website which usually gives the teardown treatment to newly-released Chinese devices, and that’s what just happened to one of Xiaomi’s handsets, read on.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is the device in question, and if you’re interested to see what lies on the inside of this smartphone, you’re in the right place. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see the whole teardown process, image-by-image. Now, the first thing you need to do is remove the back cover of the device, and you’ll need a suction up in order to do it, as the back place of the Mi Note 2 is removal, as was the case with the Mi 5’s back cover as well. As soon as you remove that part of the device, you’ll get to see the phone’s battery, and the first layer of its internals. Now, if you proceed, chances are you will void your warranty, so do keep that in mind. From this point on you will need to remove some clips on the sides, and then proceed to removing the sound chamber, a vibration motor and the printed antenna. Now you’re able to disconnect the battery, and remove it. This more or less gives you access to every other part of the phone, including its motherboard. Now, do keep in mind that you should not go through this procedure on your own if you don’t know exactly what you’re doing, because chances are that you will not only void your warranty, but also damage the phone.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 sports a 5.7-inch fullHD AMOLED display, 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of internal storage. The phone is fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor, and it comes with a 4,070mAh battery. The 22.5-megapixel snapper can be found on the back of this phablet, and an 8-megapixel camera is placed on its front side. Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the Mi Note 2, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 OS.
