Although not yet official, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has already been tipped for greatness. This comes after leaked details of the handset showed off details that prove the phone will indeed be a monster, at least on paper.
Pictures have been spotted doing rounds on Weibo and along with are some few, but significant details regarding the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 flagship. According to the report on Weibo, China’s microblogging website, the new Mi Note 2 will come with a roomy display of 5.7 inches in size and a 2K resolution on board. In addition to this, the Chinese OEM will be borrowing a feature from Apple – 3D Touch – which should be interesting to see how it works on the phablet.
Under the hood, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will also come with massive specs, including a Snapdragon 821 SoC and two RAM options of either 4GB or 6GB. These differences creep onto the storage options, where you get three units of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB, something almost similar to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus storage options.
There is more coming from the leaked photos, with claims that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will further add a decent 16MP snapper on the back as well as a capable 5MP shooter on the front. In terms of battery capacity, the huge 5.7-inch screen will be kept alive by a 4000mAh battery unit. Software-wise, Xiaomi is expected to pack the latest Android 7.0 Nougat on the handset, alongside the latest MIUI 8 skin.
Still on the same matter, the latest word on the street claims that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 could drop this name and instead come in with a Mi Pro name. While this is possible, it could end up featuring for the high-end variant that packs 6GB RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.
As noted earlier, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that do not feature a 16GB storage option for the first time in years. The available options, unlike the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, are 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Even though there is no mention of a microSD card storage on the Mi Note 2, it is also expected, something that gives it a competitive edge over the Apple phablet.
