Xiaomi is tight-lipped on its upcoming device, the Mi Note 2 and Mi Note 2 Pro, but leaks have revealed almost every detail, including specifications and pricing. Reports are doing the rounds that the handset will see the light of day next month.
It was earlier reported that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 would be announced along with the Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus on September 27 but that didn't happen. Now, analyst Pan Jiutang has said that the Mi Note 2 will be unveiled by the end of October and will be available in various colours, according to PhoneArena.
The device is already cleared by the Chinese CCC authority (China Compulsory Certification) but is yet to get certification from the Chinese telecom equipment certification authority, TENAA, which means it may take sometime for release.
It is reported that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will come in two variants of the Mi Note 2 -- one with a 64GB internal memory and a 4GB RAM priced 2,499 Yuan, and the other with a 128GB internal storage and a 6GB RAM priced at 2,799 Yuan.
Reports have it that the device will sport a 5.7-inch dual curved display with 1,440x2560 resolution, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor clocking at 2.6GHz, and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system. It is also expected to feature an Adreno 530 GPU, a 64/128GB internal memory, a 4/6GB RAM, a 12MP dual camera or a 16MP main camera with 4 axis OIS and dual LED flash, and a 4,000mAh battery.
There are also reports doing the rounds that Xiaomi will release a model of Mi Note 2 with a 256GB internal memory, an 8GB RAM, an Android 7.0 Nougat based MIUI 8 operating system, and a 3,600mAh battery with Quick Charge technology, but it is not confirmed yet.
