Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 2 seems to have caught to-be buyers unaware with the high-end-ish specs and the affordable price tag, but resellers in China seem to be up to the task.
Geekbuying has now listed the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 in 16GB anf 32GB variants for US$169.85 and US$206.85 respectively. This includes worldwide free shipping, but what you need to know (for now) is that the phone is on pre-order since sellers haven’t yet gotten stock of the phone.
If you aren’t aware (how can that be?), the Redmi Note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch screen, a Helio X10 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of ROM (plus a microSD slot) along with some goodies such as a 13 mega-pixel PDAF enabled rear camera, which you don’t get to see on a ‘budget’ phone usually.
You can check some hands on images of the phone released by Xiaomi. If you’re interested, we also have a bit of a comparison between the Redmi Note 2, the Meizu m2 note and the LeTV S1 here.
Are you planning to get one of these? If not, what other phones do you hare in mind for this year (and this budget)?
