Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi Note 2, the company’s latest flagship smartphone. The Mi Note 2 features a dual-curve display and around the back of the phone, resulting in a near-symmetrical device. In fact, it’s almost akin to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7‘s design.
The OLED display technology in the Mi Note 2 makes it possible for the curved display. Xiaomi says this is a continuation of the original Mi Note’s design, which had a “3D glass” back.
The Mi Note 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, with up to 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.0 storage onboard. It also features a large 4,070mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. So far, the Mi Note’s specifications are very respectable.
In terms of camera, the Mi Note 2 packs a 22.5MP Sony IMX 318 sensor with phase detection autofocus and f/2.0 lens. The front-facing camera, on the other hand, is an 8MP IMX 268 shooter with f/2.0 aperture.
As is always the case with the company’s smartphones, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 carries very competitive price tags. The base model with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM goes for 2,799 Chinese yuan (about RM1,720), while the 128GB variant with 6GB of RAM retails at 3,299 yuan (approximately RM2,030). The “global variant,” on the other hand, carries a slightly higher price tag of 3,499 yuan (around RM2,150).
