It was reported that Xiaomi would release its Mi Note 2 on Sept. 14 but it didn't happen. So, when will the Chinese technology giant announce it? Nothing is confirmed at the moment but it should come next week if all goes well.

The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has been cleared by the Chinese CCC authority (China Compulsory Certification), but is yet to be certified by the Chinese telecom equipment certification authority, TENAA, which is a compulsory processor for release in China. So, many were doubtful if the device would be released on the rumoured date – Sept. 14. Now, reports are doing the rounds that the handset will be unveiled on Sept. 24, but it is yet to be confirmed.

According to the reports that have surfaced so far, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will come in two variants -- one with a 64GB internal memory and a 4GB RAM with a price tag of 2,499 Yuan, and the other model with a 128GB internal storage and a 6GB RAM priced at 2,799 Yuan.

Reports have suggested that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will sport a 5.7-inch 2K dual curved display, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, and run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system. It is also expected to feature a metal body, a fingerprint scanner, a Force Touch support, a 64/128GB internal memory, a 4/6GB RAM, a 12MP dual camera, and a 3,600mAh battery with Quick Charge technology.

Meanwhile, it is also reported that Xiaomi is releasing a model with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a 32GB storage, and a 4GB RAM called Mi Note 2, and another variant called the Mi Note 2 Pro with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821processor+128GB storage+6GB RAM. It went on to claim that the two variants will share other specifications like a 16MP main camera with 4 axis OIS and dual LED flash, and a 4,000mAh battery.

However, Xiaomi is yet to announce the specifications and other details of the Mi Note 2.
