Supposed Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 backpanel pics, specs, possible price leak
3 weeks ago, we heard about a new Xiaomi handset in the makings – one that is supposedly going to go up against Meizu's latest offering and AnTuTu champion – the MX4. The rumor suggested that the device will be equipped with the same MT6595 SoC as the MX4, only paired with the more generous 3 GB of RAM, and sporting a bit of a larger 5.5" screen. These specs led to the speculation that this new Xiaomi may be the next Redmi Note model.

Today, we see another leak, claiming to show us the back panel of the yet unannounced Redmi Note 2, and citing different hardware specs. This leads us to believe that either one of the rumors is wrong, or we are talking about two completely different phones.

So, the newest whispers about the Redmi Note 2 claim that it will have a 5.5" screen, a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 SoC, 2 GB of RAM and a 13 MP main camera. The leaked back panel measures at 6.26" x 3.23" (159 x 82 mm), while the positioning and shape of the camera and flash cutouts show a different design language than Xiaomi's current-gen devices.

Lastly, the rumor claimed that the price for the device would be around $244. This affordable powerhouse definitely has our attention now. What do you make of all these whispers?

82mm seems wide for a 5.5" screen.

Good step Xiaomi. If you want respect this is exactly the right direction to take. :two thumbs up: Looks nice. Now stop mimicking Apple and create your own corporate image for once. Then you'd have my full respect. Heck, perhaps even more than Apple (which have their own obvious advantages and embarrassing flaws) with time.

Don't see any worthwhile design from Apple after iPhone 4 and MacBook Air. Apple has been quietly copying features and design from other company. Its ok to be inspired by others design. Just don't be a snob like Jone Ive.

A snob? There is a thing called intellectual properly in the US. He does have reason to be PO'ed about Xiaomi. Oh, and remember. Xiaomi won't base their whole Mi 4 design after the iPhone 5/5S if it wasn't deemed worthwhile.

You are entitled to your opinion while i am entitled to mine. I was a Apple fan with Macbook and first iPad gen. I move on to other more interesting gadgets since then. Mac OS X and iOS is just my old forsaken toys. Now i am playing with Oculus Rift DK2 and Ubuntu Server NAS running ZFSRAID2

BTW how is the DK2? Worth the money? Heard it's terribly hard to setup. Is that true?

I am also non believable of design and software patents. Such modern days patent will only limits humanity abilities to create and extend on each other ideas.

Good point and I partly agree. But you have to remember what Xiaomi (the topic at hand) is doing here. As I said, they aren't keen on innovating and thinking for themselves at all. Their business practices (as of right now - there is a chance things might change when they go global) deserve no praise whatsoever. Just look at their products they released in the past 2 years. How they conduct their business. Then you'd understand what I mean.

Strange it may sound i support OEM copying practice. Push the creative individual to come out with even better design. Unless its drug that require years of R&D funding and effort. Design and software patent promote laziness and greed. iPhone 6+ look like Note 2, M8. What does Jone Ive has to say about that?
