Earlier this month, Xiaomi confirmed to host an event in China to unveil the Mi Note 2. Now, the company has posted a product launch teaser revealing a key display feature.
In the teaser, the company says the new Mi Note 2 is "Curved to impress" and also confirmed that the device will boast dual-edge curved screen, contradicting rumours that suggested that the upcoming device would have a flat screen.
With a dual curved edge in place, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 users will be able to allow short cuts to notifications and other frequently used apps, easy access, and also view time and weather updates without having to press the power button to unlock the screen.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2: Other expected features
Besides the dual-edge curved screen, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is also said to be coming with dual parallel cameras on the back. Recently leaked images have shown that cameras are ingrained inside and there will be no awkward bump like we see in the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
Word on the street is that Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will have top-notch security features. It is said to boast Qualcomm's new generation ultrasonic 3D fingerprint sensor and state-of-the-art biometric technology-based Iris scanner as well.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is expected to sport a 5.7-inch QHD super AMOLED display (made by LG), Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor, 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB internal storage, dual cameras — 23MP (with Sony IMX318 sensor)+12MP (with Sony IMX378 sensor) on the back — an 8MP front snapper and a 4,100mAh battery with quick charge technology.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is said to come in two configurations — one with 4GB RAM+64GB internal storage and another with 6GB RAM+128GB, for ¥2799 (approx $415/€379/Rs. 27,720) and ¥2999 (approx $445/€405/Rs. 29,700), respectively.
The company has confirmed to stream the Mi Note 2 launch live online on October 25 at 11:30 pm IST.
With less than four days to the launch, Xiaomi is expected to tease a couple of more features.
Stay tuned for more updates.
