Xiaomi Mi Note 2 leaked hours before official launch

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 leaked hours before official launch
Ever since the Xiaomi Mi 5s and 5s Plus rolled out a month ago, the Mi Note 2 rumors have really picked up. A number of leaks before now have pointed to a dual curved-edge display akin to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, and with just a couple of hours to go until the grand unveiling, we've a last-ditch preview of what will soon become official. 

PowerPoint presentation recently revealed most of the juicy details of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, including its supposed 5.7-inch, 1440 x 2560 display, Snapdragon 821 processor and up to 6 GB of RAM. It's probable that the device will include up to 128 GB of internal storage, while the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor of the Mi 5s will likely get another outing. 

Industry analyst Pan Jiutang has suggested that the Mi Note 2 will cost around 4000 Yuan ($590), presumably for the top-spec version. This is quite pricey for a handset from Xiaomi, regardless of the impressive innards. With the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 out of the picture for the most part, Xiaomi will be aware of those consumers willing to part with vast sums for a powerful, curvaceous phablet. Whether current and former Note 7 owners will flock to the Mi Note 2 in their droves, however, remains to be seen. 

The device will be unveiled at a special event in Beijing in just a couple of hours' time. We'll have all of the specs, images and details covered right here as they arrive, so stay tuned!

For all you know it's better than the Note 7 and that excluding the explosive nature of said device.

Oh common, enough already with the Samsung ripoff, mobile manufacturers copy each other almost every time. what makes you think note 7 is better. Stop already. I'm happy cuz we are the ones benefitting cuz these devices are high spec, most with premium look and is reasonably low cost. Not everyone can afford the prices from Samsung and Apple. The fact that a device is manufactured in China does not make it awful. Are you buying for the company name?

Just to start with the only real photo on the left is completely fake. Really like you said it would be a Note 7 rip off, why? because Xiaomi make everything symmetrical. Ports etc are all centred not like the Note 7 and previous models that has the ports off centred. That ear piece is sitting way to high and Xiaomi don't put unnecessary fluff around the camera lens, it's always minimal. Samsung do that because they can't engineeer it to sit inside the phone. Now I dare you to take the time to compare the first Samsung 3D glass Note 5 (August 2015) with the first Xiaomi 3D glass Mi Note (Jan 2015) and tell me who copied who.
