Xiaomi Mi Note 2 in mass production says CEO Lei Jun; two variations coming?
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun announced on his Weibo page today that the highly anticipated Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is in mass production. The phone is expected to be released in mid-November with two-different variations to be offered. One will feature an LG curved dual-edge screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The other version carries a flat 5.15-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

The two models will each be driven by the Snapdragon 821 chipset, carrying a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. One unit will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The other model carries 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory. One of the two units is said to include dual 12MP cameras on back. The other phone will have a single camera with OIS.

We still have about five to six weeks before the Mi Note 2 is launched, so we could see more leaks ahead. Of course, the posts from CEO Lei Jun carry a lot more weight. If you're interested in this phone, feel free to check in often.

Well, lads... Xiaomi Smartphones are iPhone wannabes... That guy, Lei Jun is a Steve Jobs wannabe... And... The MIUI is an iOS wannabe... Now how about that, eh? All my 'reservations' against Samsung aside, I think they're doing a BRILLIANT job by being the technological leaders... Not copying stuff off of others but actually inventing by investing in R&D... Now some inventions turns out to be a dud or perhaps a 'gimmick' if I may, but that's the price of it... You've to face the heat for being the leader and beacon...! Quite naturally, You'll either hit it or miss it... And when a new idea in tech evolves, the 'suckers' step forward, simply "Copy/Paste" others hard work and save millions in R&D and call it an "original" idea... Pfft...! That's so typical... Oh well... S'Day!

MIUI an iOS wannabe? Clearly never used a Xiaomi device. iOS wishes it did a quarter of the stuff that MIUI does out the box. I'll admit that the standard icons are a bit Appley, but hey, it's MIUI and you can install and use hundreds of different theme packs that change the icons, wallpapers, fonts, lock screen, boot screen and sounds for free.

MIUI not an iOS wannabe? Clearly never used an iPhone... I quote: "iOS wishes it did a quarter of the stuff that MIUI does out the box." For example...? Apart from copying another OS, what 'exactly' MIUI does that iOS can't...? ??? Figures... G'Day!

"For example...? Apart from copying another OS, what 'exactly' MIUI does that iOS can't...?" you never own a xiaomi phone, so you dont know. Liking iphone is OK but to be blinded by fanboyism is not ok. The only apple-ish is the icons... in fact MIUI has better icons XD

I loathe the MIUI launcher so I changed it. Can you do that with an iPhone? I've used many brands over the years and miui is by far the most feature rich.

So, you iCrap can: - Control resource usage per app (the bandwidth, not permission)? - Take a loooooooooooooong screenshot? - Lock certain apps from being accessed without permission? - Child mode for child safe application list? - Customize notification light to your liking? - Clone apps with separated user data? - Or even have completely two different account (different sets of apps, different wallpaper, different app permissions, different everything but the phone itself)? - Have official support for theming? - Have one-handed mode with several different screen size? - Transfer your old phone data to new one without using internet? I think that's enough though there are still more, but clearly iCrap is nowhere near MIUI in terms of features.

Who cares. I think people fail to realize that you can get done what you can on an android what you can on an iPhone. Those features you listed, nobody is using on a day to day basis.

I can't get done with iOS, what I can with Android: Multiple mail accounts on a same device, multiple user profiles, Guest Mode, Kids Mode, hide private Apps, documents, photos, etc... Quote: "Those features you listed, nobody is using on a day to day basis". It's about conveniency. Those features are available for use whenever they are needed. Who says nobody uses them on a daily basis? Your usage isn't everyone else.

Trojan, did it ever occur to you that not everyone in this world is a 'power user'...? Eh? Ah! Figures...! Oh well... G'Day!

We, MIUI users, care. Of course you don't care, you don't even have them! :v Taking long screenshot helps our designer team's job to show what they've done to customers easily. Many users love themes, they change one to another frequently. One-handed mode is useful when you commute and need to use your phone while holding food / drink, and a lot of people (including me) do that in train stations. Other features might not be for day to day basis, and so what? Are all features must be that way? What do you have settings app for then? You set it once and forget it most of the time? Or you change it everyday? It's not nobody is using them, it's you who can't see them.

@Foxgabanna Going to say the VERY same thing... But you already beat me to it... So I'll just 'hush hush'...! iOS, Windows Mobile, Blackberry 10, Android or whatever... At the end of the day you'll have roughly the same phone with roughly the same features and you use it for roughly the same thing...! Checking E-Mails, Instant Messages, Push Notifications from Social Media, listening to music, surfing the internet and of course... Pokemons!!! G'Day!

And to add to that, if you want more out of your poor phone, than you my friend is a "Power User"... iPhones are NOT targeted at power users who use their poor little phones as "Work Stations"...! iPhones are for 'regular' people (as opposed to geeks) who want to do 'regular' things, eh? Like "taking pictures of their dog and post in on Instagram" sort of stuff... Android can do just that, of course... But it just 'trembles' too much for my taste...! Lag, if I dare say (I'm a Nexus 5 user BTW)... Whereas iOS is silky smooth and dead simple... Oh well... G'Day!

A Porsche performs just as well as a Ferrari for thousands of dollars less. I prefer my Android (Porsche) to your overpriced iPhone (Ferrari).

The Porsche doesn't lag though...!

I've had my Redmi Note 3 for 6 months and it's never lagged or frozen. Have you ever used or even seen a Xiaomi? If you are comparing it to the Nexus 5 you claim to own then you need a reminder that a 2013 phone can't compare to what's available today. The only 2013 phone that can is the iPhone 7!!

Of course you don'tcare, because it is pointless to care about what you don't have...
