Xiaomi's next blockbuster handset, the Redmi Note 2, is fast approaching, and with its imminent unveiling, the leaks just can't stop pouring in. The latest spy shots are in, and they confirm what we've seen before - a chassis rear that very much resembles Meizu's MX franchise, but with a round fingerprint sensor twist. In fact, this time the Redmi Note 2 has even been put next to a Meizu, and the similarity is even more striking.
We don't complain, as the new Xiaomi midranger is said to come with a 5.5" screen carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That combines to produce a 401ppi pixel density. A MediaTek's MT-6795 SoC is expected to be under the hood, containing a true octa-core CPU, and a PowerVR G6200 GPU. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP, respectively. Inside the phone, a 3000mAh battery is keeping the lights on.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 supports 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 5.0 would be pre-installed, with Xiaomi's MIUI 6 running on top. All of this will eventually be wrapped in a metal body, and hopefully don an affordable price, so no complaints.
