Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Gets A Rumored Release Date – Coming Out In The Month Of August
As we move closer to the end of 2016, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is almost going to be upon us, featuring the same size as its predecessor, but packing powerful hardware in the process. Now, it is expected that the flagship phablet is going to be announced during the month of August, which means that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 will have a new contender.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Rumored To Launch In The Month Of August, Is Expected To Sport A Pressure Sensitive Display
The rumor comes all the way from China, where a Weibo user has commented that the rumored price tag of the device is going to be in the month of August. Perhaps this could be the $600 smartphone that we had reported about earlier. However, for the device to feature such a price tag, Xiaomi will have to incorporate some additional features, and we have a list that we feel could be a part of the smartphone:
- Waterproof chassis
- MicroSD card slot
- Better performing camera sensors
- Pressure sensitive displays
- Better quality displays
- Ultrasonic fingerprint reader
As for the specifications of Mi Note 2, it is said to sport a phablet form factor with a 5.7-inch screen size, which is the same as the original Mi Note. While the base model of the smartphone is rumored to feature a Snapdragon 820 coupled with 4GB of RAM, the highest configured model is going to be packing a powerful Snapdragon 823 and 6GB of RAM.
Let us hope that to conserve battery life, Xiaomi does not go down the same route as OnePlus 3 and incorporate a tweak that fires up apps slower in order to provide more talk time to the user. Speaking of battery life, a 4,000mAh is going to be present inside, and while it will be smaller than the massive 4,850mAh present inside the gargantuan Mi Max, it will still get the job done.
One of the biggest highlights of Mi Note 2 is that it is rumored to feature 256GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage, which delivers higher read and write speeds compared to the eMMC standard. One other addition that we could be seeing from the handset is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader.
For those that don’t know, an ultrasonic fingerprint reader is said to be more accurate and blazing fast compared to a standard fingerprint reader incorporated in modern day Android handsets. As far as the rest of the specifications and design goes, we do not believe that Xiaomi is going to be investing too many resources in the matter.
Just like Mi5, Mi Note 2 could sport a 3D ceramic chassis, a metal frame, a front and rear glass panel, and we could see the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor placed into the home button. One of the biggest highlights from an affordable smartphone was a 16MP shooter that featured an OIS chip and featured the ability to record 4K videos at 30FPS.
