There have been a couple of rumours until now about the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Note 2, but today, we finally had the chance to see a full presumed render of the handset. Of course, there’s no guarantee of the fact that this is the real deal, but hey, it’s still better than nothing!
As pictured below, the handset could feature a dual camera setup on the back, but a bit different than everything we’ve seen before, as the sensors are aligned vertically, not horizontally, as previous rumours were claiming. Also, the fact that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has such a setup doesn’t come as a surprise, since other models from the manufacturer’s portfolio, like the new Mi 5s Plus or the Redmi Pro have something similar.
It seems that the handset has already entered production and should be unveiled somewhere in November, packing a lot of surprises. In fact, CEO Lei Jun claimed that the Mi Note 2 will pack a couple of surprise, without giving any other details. Someone knows how to create buzz around an upcoming product, that’s sure.
Spec-wise, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is supposed to come with a 5.7″ Super AMOLED display, rocking a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Under the hood, it will have a Snapdragon 821 chip, as well as 6 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of internal storage (there’s nothing about the presence of a microSD card yet), and finally, a massive 4000 mAh battery, which should keep it powered for a full day of intensive use.
As for the design, the phone should be built on a metal chassis, with glass panels on the front and back, curved toward the edges. It will be very interesting to see if the design will have a bit of a Galaxy S7 Edge flavor as well!
