Xiaomi appears to be planning to release its Mi Note 2 with a new colour. The device was released in October last year and is currently available in three colours -- black, silver, and gold – but it has been spotted in pink, giving a hint that the company could be trying to attract the female consumers.

A Weibo user by the username @Zheng Shaoyou Janice has uploaded a picture of a cherry pink Xiaomi Mi Note 2, according to MyDriver (XiaomiToday). However, it is not known if the handset is a fake or real.
