New Xiaomi Mi Note 2 leak seems to confirm specs including 6GB RAM

We've had quite a few updates pertaining to Xiaomi's Mi Note 2 lately. One of the recurring themes is that the device will be the first from Xiaomi to pack 6 gigs of RAM, and a newly-leaked screenshot seems to confirm that at least one version will be generously equipped with the stuff. Elsewhere, the tidbit also points to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset, which refutes the general notion that the Mi Note 2 will get the newer Snapdragon 821. 

As you'd expect, the screenshot shows the device running the latest Android 7.0 Nougat firmware, beneath Xiaomi's MIUI overlay. On-board storage checks in at 64 GB with a total of 52.28 GB free to be used, though a 128 GB edition could also be in the offing. 

Display-wise, we're expecting a panel of 5.5 inches or more in diameter, and various sightings have suggested a pair of curved edges similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Then again, some of the leaks — photos of the 'Mi Note 2' taken in complete darkness — could easily have been faked. For now, then, we're taking most of the info — including this new screenshot — with a reasonable dose of skepticism. 

With IFA set to take place in Berlin next week, we hopefully won't have to wait too much longer to find out precisely what Xiaomi is plotting.

That's because your beloved brand is the one that's COPYING. Lmao. Have fun with your beloved copy cat.

Personally, I don't care who copies who, and for what reasons. I just want a phone with a big battery, Micro SD expansion, and a really fast camera that takes great pictures. If every company under the sun makes one, that's great! I LOVE competition.

"personally" then you should keep it to yourself.

"Personally" is why there's a comment section.. to give your opinion. Obviously you didn't hesitate giving yours.

"A comment section" There's your answer right there, A COMMENT SECTION, not your personal comment sections. Lmao.

Why do you care? A little more tolerance towards other people's opinion would sure be nice here.

..And what would a "comment" be? An opinion of whether you like/dislike the content of the article.. Much like your FIRST COMMENT.. which was your "opinion" that Xiaomi copied Samsung.. smmfh.. you're hardly worth responding to.

"what would a comment be?" Err stating the facts? My First comment was purely stating the fact of this being a copy cat. So now you can't even differentiate facts and opinions? Back to school maybe? Talk to yourself, your comments are hardly worth a response from anyone. Smh

Comment sections are for opinions.. You stated your opinion. YOUR opinion of whether it's a fact or not is subjective, as noted by several replies to your comments. Speaking of comments, I've read yours, and you're just an idiot. Period. I'm done here.

Yep copying......and getting paid more doing it. I should thank Samsung for their generous donations to the company that makes them look insignificant to the majority of the world. Well done Samsung.......

Thanks for admitting that your beloved brand is copying. Doesn't it feel good to admit the truth like I always do? :D

Well, apparently they're not insignificant to Xiaomi. They're not insignificant to you either since there is not a Samsung article that you have the ability to avoid.

Ummmmm........check every Samsung article below this Xiaomi one. Not a single comment from me. I find Samsung articles capricious by their very nature, so I tty to avoid reading them unless something truly important comes about. However, context is something of an issue here. I said "to the majority of the world" what way does that constitute my determination of their significance to me?

26. willard12 unregistered

Well, the "majority of the world" comment was absurd considering Samsung is the world's largest smartphone manufacturer. So, I thought that was just another one of your imbecilic platitudes. As for your posts, I didn't take into account the hate vacation you've taken since the original Note 7 articles. At 1600 comments since February on your current account , I would only have to guess that a few of them are on Samsung articles. What's really telling is the thanks you would like to give Samsung for their generous donations to Apple. A fanboy, a real fanboy, is the guy that applauds a corporations profits as if they are sitting on their board. Maybe you work for Apple. So, my assessment of this level of fanboyism could be wrong.

The world's largest smartphone manufacturer does not equate relevance. Most people recognize Samsung as the "other" company that makes phones. And you're right, I have commented on Samsung articles, but it's mostly troll stomping. I applaud profits because that's the only true method of measuring success in this industry. It denotes several things, including successful premium market penetration and dominance. Samsung can have their market share with Galaxy Grand Primes.....I'll take pride in something that actually matters thanks. You may call it what you like, but understand that your claim is contradictory by the very definition. You can't brag about "largest manufacturer" (that's by volume BTW) and chastise me for enjoying profit margins staying high.

High profit margins isn't the best metric for measuring success. Money alone can't save an OEM from becomming irrelevant. Blackberry and Nokia are examples.

A) Nether of those two companies accumulated a modicum of Apple's cash reserve. Nor were either capable of producing inelastic demand for their products, something Apple has accomplished. B) Contrary to your (and apparently the majority of the uninformed masses here) neither company is in need of saving. Both companies still have a wealth of assets that still command industry attention, especially in the case of BlackBerry.

I was talking about BB and Nokia's mobile division. They're in need of salvation.

You just confirmed what Willard said when you commented "I applaud profits that's the only true method of measuring success in this industry" From a companies perspective profit is important, to the consumer it means nothing. The problem is you use profits to make out Apple has the best products, which is totally irrelevant. Only a real fanboy, one who has no real reason to claim that their favourite company products are superior and is desperate to do, would use this metric to justify their claim. By the way Apple does not dominate the "premium market" Samsung is selling as many premium phones as Apple and Android sells more premium phones than Apple. I agree this is not relevant to which phones are best, but as you bring it up I should put the record straight.

In absolutely now way did I brag about Samsung's status as world's largest smartphone manufacturer. I only pointed in out to address your ridiculous theory on world relevance. I could care less what they rank as I do not personally receive any compensation for it, just as I don't receive any compensation for their profits. Profit only denotes one thing, and that is the ability to sell a cheap product (which you refer to as premium) for a high price. That is the only thing profit is. It is a margin. But, if you insist on bragging about a company's profits. I suppose congratulations are in order to you on the success of Apple's profits. Afterall, you bought a phone with $199 worth of technology for $800. You did at least contribute to being fleeced. Congrats!

Dear Mr kiko, Judging from all of your pointless responses from all over PA posts, I can confirm that you need a life. Step out of your room or even your house to breath in some fresh air and have a life. **Reminder** Just in case if you don't know what LIFE means since you have none for so long now, here is a link to the definition of LIFE: Please pay extra attention to this part of the definition - "or the EXPERIENCE or state of being alive" You're welcome.

I'm not wasting more of my time on your nonsense KEITH (haha....Keith) so run along with your Galaxy Note V Edge or whatever and leave the comments section to the adults in the room. P.S. The fact you had to research the meaning of the word life indicates several aspects of your own fragmented existence :D. Enjoy your therapy sessions!!!

Kiko007! A sale isn't a donation, and why should Samsung deny selling it's curved display to Xiaomi? Because Xiaomi does hurt it's smartphone sales in Asia? That would be a retarded reason, because Samsung is more than just a smartphone OEM. Samsung is a supplier/vendor of various components, of which it's curved display is a part!

Good point, but you are, just a teeny bit, in a different way. For example, you hit on every single stupid fandroid troll, yet ignore every single stupid ifan troll.
