Leaked graphic appears to confirm specs of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2


We've already caught several glimpses of Xiaomi's upcoming Mi Note 2, a phablet set to go heads-up with Samsung's Galaxy Note 7. Some of the device's specs have also been revealed before now, and a new graphic seems to tie everything together quite nicely. Whether this info has merely been cooked up by the rumors or not, it does seem very likely that a curvaceous, cheaper Note 7-incarnate is on its way to market. 

By the sound of things, the Mi Note 2 will go all out to impress. Aside from the Snapdragon 821, up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the 5.7-inch curved-edge display will apparently boast quad-HD resolution, dependent on the version. It's rumored that Force Touch may also be supplied along with dual rear-facing cameras, and the top-tier model — per the folks at Phonandroid — could be on the market for the equivalent of just $420. With a 4,000 mAh battery also set to keep the lights on, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 could be a real winner. 

It's thought that Xiaomi's answer to the Note 7 could be unveiled in early September, perhaps on the 5th. Amid the excitement and anticipation of what may be in store, it's worth adding that these leaked renders and snippets of info have yet to be confirmed. There's expected to be a lower-end version with a full-HD display and 64 GB of storage, and it's possible that said model could launch for around $375 — with or maybe without the curved edges. 

Though it's probably wishful thinking, one can certainly hope to see this beastly smartphone launch in the US as Xiaomi plots its Stateside expansion. Whatever the case, we'll have further details right here as and when they arrive. 

In the meantime, take a look at some of the leaked renders below, and be sure to share your impressions in the comments.

That COMPLETE PHONE costs a bit north to the screen replacement cost of a Note 7......

To challenge the note 7 it needs a quad hd screen. Also 1080p on >5.5 inch displays is a bit lousy for today's android flagship standards.

All my phones are 5.5" 1080p and it's more than adequate.

I wrote >5.5 inch. Open your eyes and see this (>) sign; it means 'greater than' ,for ur info......And also read what I wrote before this statement: It needs a quad hd screen to challenge the note 7. Infer something appropriate if you are sensible enough.

I hope the prices are correct, because Xiaomi Mi5 is sold for almost $500...
