Xiaomi’s Redmi series may have been grabbing the headlines of late, but it’s the Mi series that happen to carry the real flagships. It’s been a while since the last Mi Note launched, and it might just be time for a refresh.
The Mi Note 2 has been in the rumours for a little while. If reports from China are to be believed, this smartphone is all set to launch as early as next month, on the 5th of September. This time around, Xiaomi seem to be in the mood for some experimentations.
The Mi Note 2 will, allegedly, come with a dual rear camera setup akin to the Redmi Pro. It’ll also feature a Samsung-style curved screen on either side, according to the reports. To top it off, this will be a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED 2K display, with another full HD variant.

That, with a Snapdragon 821 SoC, 6GB RAM, a 16 mega-pixel main camera (with the dual-camera version having 12 mega-pixel cameras on the rear). Other ‘goodies’ like HiFi audio, IR blaster, etc. are expected to be present as well, with all of it powered by a 4000mAh battery.
Moving on to the purported pricing, the 4GB RAM 1080p edition is expected to cost 2499 Yuan ($375), while the 6GB RAM 2K will be 2999 Yuan ($449) with the top-end 6GB RAM 2K curved screen edition getting a 3499 Yuan ($524) price tag.
If I were you, I’d take this with a pinch of salt and wait for 5th of September.
