Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Release Set for Mid-November – Two Variants in the Making?

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Leaks

Samsung is not the only company making great Note phones, Xiaomi has also made its name in this smartphone category with the Mi Note series.

The latest name to show up is the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, a phone that has been in the rumor mills for quite some time now. Apparently, a top company official has thrown in a bit of a hint that the phone is indeed under production. In fact, the official seems to insinuate that the phone is being produced in huge numbers so as to meet the growing demand of Xiaomi phones.

With the company’s recent launch in the American market, a number of devices are expected to make their way to North America. Even though these devices are not yet known, we won’t be surprised to see the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 among them.

If the latest reports are to be believed, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will be here in mid-November. Furthermore, it is thought that there will be two variants of the phone where one has a flat screen design and the other will feature an LG-made curved dual-edge screen. The former will come with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels while the latter will feature a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution. Apparently, the two will share the same screen size of 5.15 inches, similar to what we have on the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 5s.

Under the hood, there will be a Snapdragon 821 SoC that is paired with an Adreno 530 graphics processing unit. As for the RAM, the two variants will have different sizes. The flagship model that carries a QHD resolution will include a 6GB RAM and onboard storage of 256GB. As for the base model, you get 4GB RAM alongside 64GB of onboard storage. It is possible that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 – both variants – will come with room for microSD card storage.

One of the two Xiaomi Mi Note 2 units will reportedly come with a dual-lens camera of 12MP whereas the other will only have a single lens setup, but both will come with OIS on board. The front camera has not been mentioned, but it could anywhere in the regions of 8MP.

If Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun is to be believed, we should indeed see this mid-November release date for the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 materialize. But until then, expect more leaks about the phone to keep coming in. We’ll be here to bring you the latest of them. Just keep following us.
