Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 could be announced on August 13, at the same time with MIUI 7
The long-rumored Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 might be finally announced next week, at the same time with Xiaomi's brand new MIUI 7 Android skin. While Xiaomi already confirmed that it's going to announce MIUI 7 on August 13, it didn't say anything about a new Redmi Note. However, according to Chinese website MyDrivers, the Redmi Note 2 will likely be showcased on August 13, too.

It looks like a Chinese retailer has already revealed the price of the Redmi Note 2. If the screenshot seen below is genuine, the new handset's 32 GB version will cost just $128 (799 CNY) in China.

It's said that the Redmi Note 2 will have about the same size as the first generation model. But the new smartphone should come with various improvements, including a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, and 2 GB of RAM.

Not long ago, we heard that the Redmi Note 2 could be announced on August 16, but this may actually be the date when the handset goes on sale. Photos showing the new Xiaomi Redmi Note can be seen in the slideshow below.

They are, but MIUI is kinda not optimized for the phones. I mean, on my Redmi 1S it gets seriously hot and gets to the point it won't register touches anymore, also serious battery drain on the new MIUI 6 update. What's with that?

I think it also same as the redmi note at the time of launch (solid, brilliant, premium and with not so premium price tag)
