Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship Mi Note 2 is the next to undergo the rumour mill churn. China’s Weibo micro-blogging site has got some interesting speculation (spotted by MobiPicker) pertaining to this phablet.
The first speculation is about the variants of the Mi Note 2, which is expected to come in three models — 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage, and 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The website has also tipped on their pricing at CNY 2,499 (approx. Rs. 25,000) for the 4GB RAM model, CNY 2,999 (approx. Rs. 30,000) for 6GB RAM/64GB storage variant, and CNY 3,499 (approx. Rs. 35,000) for the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant. The release date of Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is said to be sometime later this year.
Regarding the specifications, the display size will be 5.7-inch for all the models. However, there could differences in their quality. To say, the low-end model will come with full-HD resolution and the others may feature QHD. The high-end model could be equipped with Force Touch. This is the technology that Apple calls 3D Touch. In its simplest term, it can differentiate between a hard tap, a regular tap, and a light tap on the display. Each tap would result in a different response from the handset. The higher-end model may also feature a curved-edge. There were some previous rumours about Mi Note 2 processor that suggested Snapdragon 820 or Snapdragon 823 at the helm.
In terms of camera, 6GB/128GB storage model Xiaomi Mi Note 2 may come with 12 MP dual rear cameras. The phablet with the 4GB RAM/32GB storage model will carry a single 16MP camera on the back. All the variants are expected to carry a 4000mAh battery integrated with fast charging support. All the Mi Note 2 models are also expected to be equipped with fingerprint scanner.
Xiaomi hasn’t confirmed any of these specs, hence these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt.
