The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is one of the most powerful smartphones announced this year. This is Xiaomi's flagship phablet, and it was introduced two months ago alongside the Xiaomi Mi MIX, Xiaomi's bezel-less phablet which managed to intrigue quite a few people. The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is currently available in China, though its availability is still limited, as the company is trying to meet the demand. That being said, we've seen some rumors recently stating that Xiaomi might introduce yet another variant of the Mi Note 2, a variant which will sport a flat display, compared to the curved one the regular Mi Note 2 comes with. Well, Xiaomi has now officially decided to respond to such rumors, read on.

Xiaomi's Marketing Director, Zang Zhiyuan, basically said that Xiaomi has no plans to release the flat-screened variant of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Some consumers were expecting this model to be released mainly because the device surfaced on TENAA, China's equivalent to the FCC, but it seems like that won't happen. This device was supposed to be identical to the already available Mi Note 2 handset in all aspects except its display, and it was supposed to be slightly cheaper because of that. Mr. Zhiyuan seems rather adamant, and it seems we won't be seeing another Mi Note 2 variant at all, at least not the one that will sport a flat display, and that is perfectly logical from a business standpoint, the Mi Note 2 is quite popular as it is and the curved display makes it stand out from most other phones in the same category (phablets).

The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is made out of metal and glass, and the device is quite powerful. The Mi Note 2 comes with a 5.7-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) curved AMOLED display, 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 64GB / 128GB of native storage. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC, and a 4,070mAh battery is available on the inside, while Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging is also included in this package. The 22.5-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of this phablet, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes out of the box with MIUI 8.
