Sequel to the Xiaomi Redmi Note sounds like a monster
A report published out of China over the weekend, reveals specs for a high-end Redmi phone that Xiaomi is rumored to be prepping as competition for the Meizu MX4. The phone will be powered by an octa-core MT6595 chip from MediaTek, with 3GB of RAM. This is not the true octa-core chip offered by MediaTek, and relies on the Big.LITTLE architecture with four Cortex A-17 cores (with a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz) and four Cortex A-7 cores (with a top clock speed of 1.7GHz).

The Xiaomi Redmi model will sport a 5.5 inch screen and is expected to carry a 20.7MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP snapper on the front. There is supposedly a 3500mAh battery powering the handset, with support for rapid charging. The new Xiaomi flagship should be available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB versions priced at $165, $215 and $245, respectively (price of 128GB model is unknown).

The phone could be the sequel to the popular Xiaomi Redmi Note, and will feature 4G LTE and NFC connectivity. It will also come with support for gesture controls and employ temperature sensors. Since the MediaTek chip has scored 47,233 in the AnTuTu benchmark test, it sounds like Xiaomi has quite a powerhouse coming. Will we see this offered in a flash sale?
