Yes, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 does support Micro SD


xiaomi redmi note 2

There was a little confusion yesterday at the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 as to if this killer phone supports micro SD or not. We already spoke to Xiaomi and confirmed it does, but here is a little more evidence.

As you can see (below) the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 boasts dual 4G LTE, a removable 3060mAh battery (an features we are seeing less and less of these days) and there is room for a micro SD card. You can also see that Xiaomi haven’t used a SIM tray forcing to use either dual SIM or a single SIM and micro SD, but instead have 3 separate places under the rear cover. We can also confirm that SD cards of up to 32GB only are supported.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 launch sent a shock through the Chinese smartphone market when it was announced from 799 Yuan to 999 Yuan with octacore Mediate Helio X10 chipset, 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel camera, Phase Detection Auto Focus, 5.5-inch FHD display, quick charge 2.0 and a built-in IR blaster.

Xiaomi will first release the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 in China on the 16th of August, international customers can by the phone through shop.gizchina.com for $169.99.

    How much will the 32GB version be selling for outside of China? Hopefully resellers won’t be greedy and it going will come in at under $200. Otherwise it’s only a good buy if you live in China.

      it will always be market price.
      the price floats with the demand.

      if people are willing to pay big bucks for this phone then they will keep the price high.

      the first batches are going to be pricey but then we should see a price drop after a couple of months

          do you like this one?
          i would wait anyway, just to make sure.

          not that i don’t trust Xiaomi, but you know, better safe than sorry.

          MIUI 7 might come with few bugs so we will let other people being beta tester.

    Meizu MX5 killer, so clear!

    • balcobomber25

      Not quite, the MX5 has some things the Note doesn’t such as fingerprint scanner, a metal build and has more RAM. It will eat into sales of the MX5 but it won’t kill it.

      It has been my experience that most phones with a “max” amount will accept much more than that. I have used several that said 32max and took 64 and even 128 cards.
