Two Xiaomi Mi Note 2 models touted; top-end version to get Snapdragon 821 & 6GB RAM
Xiaomi is expected to take the wraps off the Mi Note 2 in the very near future. Hitherto, reports have suggested that the device will offer cutting-edge interior hardware, while leaked snaps have showcased a slick, curved-edge design. The latest tibdit suggests there will be not one, but two versions of the Mi Note 2; a top-tier model with the Snapdragon 821 and 6 GB of RAM, and a still-powerful standard variant with the Snapdragon 820 and 4 GB of RAM. 

The latter — which could possibly be given the 'pro' or 'plus' moniker — will apparently feature 128 GB of on-board storage. The lesser model, meanwhile, may only get 32 GB ROM, and history indicates there's a good chance that Xiaomi will not offer expansion via microSD

AndroidPure cites a Weibo source in tentatively suggesting the two different configurations. While the Snapdragon 821 has been touted for the Mi Note 2 before, another recent leak indicated there could be a model with the Snapdragon 820 and 6 GB RAM. In addition, one website already lists a Mi Note 2 with the Snapdragon 821 and 4 gigs of RAM, at a cost of $399. Needless to add that until the Chinese firm officially shares its plans for the device, all rumored specs should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Images and renders indicate a design somewhat akin to the Galaxy Note 7. Given that a global recall of Samsung's handset is on the cards due to battery issues, a device like the Mi Note 2 could potentially reap stronger sales for Xiaomi at its Korean rival's expense. 

Reports allude to an early-September announcement for the Mi Note 2, though Xiaomi has kept very quiet regarding its whereabouts. We will, as ever, keep you informed of any update. In the meantime, have a sift through the latest leaks below, and let us know if you're considering the Mi Note 2 in the comments.
