Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 “leaks” look to be made from Meizu MX5 photos

xiaomi redmi note 2 fake

Xiaomi might have dropped the ball with the Xiaomi Mi 4i, but we doubt they would resort to stealing the design of the Meizu MX5 for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 as this “leak” would have us believe.

I don’t know if I am being too suspicious here, but the above image is quite clearly a fake to me. Someone has simply taken a photo of the Meizu MX5, added a little width and tweaked it a little to make it look “unique”.

Those tweaks include turning the dual LED flash around, adding a touch fingerprint scanner, Mi logo and a speaker grill design from the Xiaomi Mi 4i.

Although fake it has been rumoured that the next Redmi Note will have a full metal body, but we imagine it to be more in line with the Xiaomi Mi 4 chassis and retain the plastic rear panel.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is long overdue and it must be about time for launch, but what do you expect from Xiaomi a second time around?
