Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 leaks next to a Meizu, can you spot the differences?
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.

After S6 edge was launched, I find this iphone-like designs getting lame and boring. The saving grace for chinese branded phones are their monster specs and affordable price.

Almost certainly it's a photoshopped MX5. The Redmi Note released with $160 (999 yuan) price tag. Most likely The Redmi Note 2 will follow suit. At that price that specs is highly unlikely. Once Xiaomi phones was unrivalled with its prices. Not anymore. They decided it's a good time to enjoy fatter profit margins starting from 2015. If the Mi4i is $205, then with that depicted specs it should be more expensive. Much better SoC, check. Metal body, check. Fingerprint scanner, check. Larger display, check. It would be that the MX5 expensive. If it would come with SD615 instead to Helio X10, then it would be that the Mi4 (not Mi4i) expensive. Mi4i is overpriced considering old Xiaomi standards (and comparing some devices like The M1 Note). It's clearly a midranger and better suits Redmi line. They placed in Mi line and called it as a flagship. So they could have a ground to justify that price. No suprise they didn't release it in China yet. If you familiar with Chinese market, you would see there is no way it would sell in large volumes with that price. Look at the Meizu M1 Note. It released 6 months ago at $160 price range. Recently the M2 Note started from $130. If they are intended to stay strong in Chinese budget phablets market they can't afford to offer less than its contenders, but doing that could cause hurting their international customers' who bought Mi4i.
