The flagship from the ‘Apple of China’ Xiaomi has officially has been announced and has appropriately been named Mi Note 2 to succeed the original Mi Note announced back in 2015. Though it doesn’t feature a stylus to provide the user the ultimate Galaxy Note 7 replacement, it still does wonders in the hardware department, and best of all, it comes touting that dual-curved edge screen that’s slowly transitioning to other high-end devices.

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Comes Touting a Flexible OLED Panel, a Massive Battery, and an Affordable Price for a Flagship Smartphone

It was expected that Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was going to feature a Snapdragon 821 coupled with 6GB of RAM, but there are other aspects of the phone whose features are present in expensive flagships, but this phablet is a cheaper alternative. The beautiful OLED QHD panel has found its way on the 5.7-inch screen and its sheer size is also able to accommodate a massive 4,070mAh cell inside its housing. There’s also a 22.56MP rear camera sensor, and according to the company, they’ve added hardware stabilization in order to prevent further camera shake while recording high-resolution videos.

As for the pricing, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is available in several RAM and internal storage models, as the company has done many times before, and just like previous models before it, if you purchase a higher internal memory model, you’re guaranteed a higher amount of RAM as well.
