Renders of Mi Note 2 Leaked – Galaxy Note 7 Might Have Its Latest Competitor Announced Soon


While there is word on the announcement of Xiaomi Mi Note 2, these latest rendered images provide a decent amount of evidence that the phablet could be getting ready to take on a Galaxy Note 7.

Renders Show a Curved Edge Display and Other Similarities Between Mi Note 2 and Note 7

In our previously detailed report, the front panel of Mi Note 2 shows a dual curved edge screen, along with a cutout for a massive button present in the middle, so as far as these renders go, they are quite on point with the leaked image we reported on earlier. It’s also possible that to engage in a fair skirmish against the Galaxy Note 7, the Mi Note 2 possesses a Gorilla Glass 5 as well. Gorilla Glass 5 protects smartphones and tablets from a height of 1.6 meters, as opposed to Gorilla Glass 4, which only protects them from a height of 1 meter.

Mi Note 2 could be the $600 smartphone that we had reported about earlier. Xiaomi did state that it was going to move slowly towards the premium Android smartphone market, which means that future mobile devices would be packing more features. Luckily, the company will continue to focus on other market segments to provide the best possible price/performance ratio to consumers globally.

Here’s a list of features that we expect a premium Xiaomi smartphone to possess:

  • Waterproof chassis
  • MicroSD card slot (highly unlikely, look at the company’s previous flagship offerings)
  • Better performing camera sensors
  • Pressure sensitive displays
  • Better quality displays (AMOLED to be more accurate)
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint reader

Notable hardware specification details suggest that a Snapdragon 821 and 6GB LPDDR4 RAM are going to be a part of sheet, and it’s also possible that dual 12MP cameras are present on the rear side. Since a QHD display is expected from Xiaomi’s Mi Note 2, we are also hoping that a 4,000mAh battery will be incorporated as well. There’s currently no word on its release date, but we’ll make all sorts of efforts to ensure that you’re updated as soon as possible.
