Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 teardown: here's what's inside a $125 phone

Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 teardown: here's what's inside a $125 phone
Short of a week ago, Xiaomi once again proved that it was one of the key players in the affordable niche of the smartphone market by announcing the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, a pretty affordable device that packs some pretty solid punch for the price tag. 

We are dealing with a device that boasts MediaTek's powerful Helio X10 chipset, which comes with eight Cortex A53s cores running at up to 2GHz for the 16GB version and 2.2GHz for the 32GB one, respectively; 2GB of RAM, a 5.5" 1080p display, a 3,060mAh battery, and a 13MP rear/5MP front-facing cameras. 

All of this is starting at $125 for the most basic version (in China, that is), but even the best-spec'd one is totally on the affordable  Sounds too good to be true, but totally real - Xiaomi already slung some 800,000 units of the entry-level phone in a 12-hour flash sale that took place in China a few days ago. Whoa. 

Well, the device is certainly going to rattle a few cages with the hard to match bang-for-buck ratio it comes with. As some units of the phone are already out in the wild, it was more than normal for a teardown of the Redmi Note 2 to pop up, giving us a full view of its neatly packed internals.

Check what's inside the exciting low-cost trooper right below!
