Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Will Come In Two Variants; An MT6795 And A Snapdragon 615 Model

According to Mobipicker, Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 could be announced on the aforementioned date, which is only three days ahead of Samsung’s August 13th event. Coming to the hardware specifications of Redmi Note 2, we expect that the handset is going to be shipped out in two variants; an MT6795 and a Snapdragon 615 variant.

On a personal note, on pure performance terms, we will immediately be compelled to purchase the MT6795 SoC model, since Snapdragon 615 comes nowhere close to the performance level of MediaTek’s chipset.

Additionally, we should also expect 2 GB of RAM to be present in the handset. As for the screen size and resolution, Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 will feature a 5.5 inch screen that will render a 1080p resolution. Thanks to its larger form factor, we could be seeing a 3,020 mAh battery present in it as well. A 13 MP/5 MP camera sensor combination will provide satisfactory image snapping quality and we also expect the handset to feature 16 GB of on-board expandable storage.

Since the device is going to target the mid-ranged smartphone market, we should expect a price tag of less than $200. As for which model we would purchase, we would definitely settle for MT6795. Qualcomm has disappointed consumers and its corporate clients lately, and we don’t want to be a part of that circle anytime soon. Looks like we are going to have to wait for Redmi Note 2 to be unveiled on that aforementioned date. Are you guys excited for the launch? Let us know your thoughts.
