The upcoming Mi Note 2 could be Xiaomi’s flagship phablet with top of the line hardware.
Off late, Xiaomi seems to be quite busy working on successors of some of its popular smartphones. A few months ago, we came across a report that the Mi Note successor could flaunt a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge-like curved AMOLED display, which Xiaomi will source from Samsung. Now, a new rumor out from China sheds more light on possible specifications and features of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Note 2 phablet.
Citing sources, GizmoChina reports that Xiaomi Mi Note 2 could be offered in three variants. The base variant is likely to feature a single camera at the back, ‘regular’ quick charge function and a Hi-Fi audio chip. The second version could feature a dual-camera setup at the back, Hi-Fi audio chip and ‘super quick charging’ feature. Lastly, the top-end variant is likely to come with dual curved edge AMOLED display, the same as we’ve already seen on Galaxy S7 edge. While it is also rumored to include Hi-Fi audio and super quick charging, the report doesn’t talk about dual-camera setup.
In terms of hardware, rumors suggest the Mi Note 2 could feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC or slightly faster Snapdragon 823 SoC at helm, paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Previous leaks also pointed that the Mi Note 2 could be offered in 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage variants. That’s not all; it could also feature Sony’s 16-megapixel IMX298 sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 3,600mAh battery.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi has also been working on the Mi 5s which is said to come with a pressure sensitive display, Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint scanner and a dual camera setup at the back. Just yesterday, we also learned that the Redmi 4 is likely to be powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 deca-core chipset.
Based on the leaks, the upcoming Xiaomi smartphones and phablets seem to pack some impressive set of specifications and feature. However, we will have to wait until Xiaomi makes them official.
