Xiaomi’s Upcoming Mi Note 2 Pricing and Specs Leaked

Xiaomi’s Upcoming Mi Note 2 Pricing and Specs Leaked

Xiaomi has a few distinct product lines that it follows along for its smartphones. The Redmi series of devices often fall into the low-end and budget price categories (even though there may not be anything low end about them), while the Mi lineup is towards the mid-end in terms of price. Of course, Xiaomi’s products pack punches way above their pricing, but this distinction between the Redmi and the Mi lineup gives us a fair thought on what one can expect from the next iteration in the series.

The Mi 5 earlier in the year set the tone of Xiaomi raising the bar with its flagship. While still a good flagship choice in terms of pure hardware, the Mi 5 got left behind with the OnePlus 3 coming into the picture. But it seems that Xiaomi is looking set to pitch in another flagship with the upcoming Mi Note 2.

As per presentation slides obtained by AndroidPure from Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, the Mi Note 2 certainly paints a strong picture. The phone will reportedly feature a 5.7″ 2K Super AMOLED display made by LG, which will also have support for 3D Touch (pressure sensitivity). There is also likely to be an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the glass, just as we have seen with the Mi 5s.


For the insides, the Mi Note 2 is likely to bear the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC. The RAM and storage combinations of the device will be 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB. There will also be a 4100 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support over the USB Type-C port.


The phone will also sport a dual rear camera setup, with the sensors being reported as the 23MP Sony IMX318 plus the 12MP Sony IMX378 (which is used in the Google Pixel). How Xiaomi implements the dual camera system is yet to be seen. The phone will also have an iris scanner, just in case users thought that there was some feature missing.

Pricing for the Mi Note 2 is still quite up in the air. Earlier reports pitched in that the device would be around CNY 5,699 mark ($845), but these presentation slides bring down the price to CNY 2,799 ($415) for the base variant and CNY 2,999 ($445) for the higher variant. All of these pricing and spec info is based on leaks, so do take them with a pinch of salt.
