Xiaomi Mi Note 2 and Mi Notebook news and reports


The Mi Notebook and Mi Note 2 are two of Xiaomi’s upcoming devices that seem to have everyone excited and eager for their launches, and according to popular analyst Pan Jiutang, we won’t have to wait very long for one of these devices.

Pan went to Weibo to announce that the Mi Note 2 will be launched in August, which matches up with what was said by Xiaomi Co-founder Liwan Jiang. This does give the announcement a bit more authenticity, though this still hasn’t officially been confirmed so I’d recommend taking this news with a pinch of salt.

The Mi Note 2 is expected to have a Snapdragon 821 chipset along with a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED touchscreen, either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal memory. The device will also supposedly have a 12MP main camera, a large 3700mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner on the front of the device.

In other news, the Mi Notebook has appeared in a report claiming that Xiaomi is only expecting ship 300,000 units this year, down from the original amount which was one million units. This is apparently due to the device being delayed and postponed multiple times this year.

The Mi Notebook is expected to start shipping by the end of the month, and will reportedly come in 12.5-inch and 13-inch variants. What do you make of this news? Tell us in the comments below.

    Still checking for MiBook(s) price(s) and final specs… 🙂 Summer is Hot!

      Yes, I also want to see the specs. I own a Lenovo Y700 with 17,3″, but for holidays a smaller screened device would be perfect.

      If there is a Pro version that will be the one with the 6/128 and the base will be 4/64.

      There is absolutely no reliable info on that device yet besides an August launch date and a SD821 result on Geekbench that might be from it . Everything that is being said are assumptions and speculations.
      I can tell you one thing though, it’s likely to support Daydream and then it won’t be 1080p. It is also likely that they’ll have a curved screen since they’ve been rumored to and they said a while ago that they are working on a device with curved.
      So if we had to speculate it would be 5.7inch 1440p curved ,SD821 , some RAM (lol), some NAND and no microSD (what can you do, they are shameless animals) , some low pixel count cam because they would follow others so likely 12MP and you know … a battery (how awesome it has a battery!) And ofc , given the price for the previous Note and the MI5, it would cost too much. -that’s what those so called rumors are,some random dude taking a guess. The only diff is that i’m better at paying attention.

        ” The only diff is that i’m better at paying attention.”
        oh look at you …. all arrogant like that ??

        “LG G8 in 2019 will have foldable screen,16GB RAM, xpoint, 5G
        connectivity, fingerprint sensor integrated in the display (not under
        glass, that’s something else), wifi ad and ah, bluetooth 5, 6000mAh,
        quantum dot cams. That’s about as reliable as the published Note 2
        rumors lol.”

        riiight … and it will cost how many kidneys ?? ?

        • realjjj
          July 25, 2016

          Most speculations are less than informed guess and obvious garbage, it’s not at all arrogant to claim to be able to do better.

          That was just a relaxed listing of crap that could be in a phone by then not a serious prediction. Anyway ,pricing would be the normal LG pricing + a 50 to 100$ premium since more is not doable no matter what. But the premium depends on when we see the first foldable screens.If it’s next year , prices will drop quite a bit by 2019.

    The Mi Note 2 will cost $600 when OP3, Axon 7 and Z2 Pro all have AMOLED at $400. Forget it… I am interested in that Notebook if they price it to sell.
