The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has definitely been one of the most leaked smartphones in the last couple of months. Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship phablet has been popping up all over the place, and the company had opted to introduce the Xiaomi Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus flagships handsets before they announce the Mi Note 2. These two handsets were introduced at the end of last month, and the Mi Note 2 is expected to land in October or November, at least if the latest report is to be believed. That being said, the company’s CEO has just released some more info when it comes to the Mi Note 2, read on.
Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, has announced via his official Weibo (Chinese social media) page that the Mi Note 2 is in mass production, which suggests that its announcement is near. Now, if the rumors are to be believed, then we might see two variants of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 hit the market. One will sport LG’s curved dual edge QHD display, while the other variant is said to come with a 5.15-inch fullHD display, which seems a bit odd considering that the Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus comes with a 5.15-inch display, and it’s the company’s flagship smartphone. In any case, both of these models are said to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core processor, while only one of these two devices is going to ship with 6GB of RAM (we’re guessing the larger one) and 256GB of storage, while the other will be equipped with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Now, the camera setup on the back of these devices will also be different it seems, one unit will sport two 12-megapixel cameras on the back, while the other one will ship with a single OIS camera. Now, based on previous leaks, the larger Mi Note 2 variant will come with the dual camera setup.
The 5.15-inch variant of the Mi Note 2 seems quite unlikely, Xiaomi had already introduced two high-end 5.15-inch devices this year, the Xiaomi Mi 5 and Mi 5s, while the latter one landed quite recently. Now, as far as the other, QHD variant is concerned, you can expect it to sport a 5.7-inch display.
