Here are your Friday morning Xiaomi Ni Note 2 leaks and renders

xiaomi mi note 2 redner

What a great way to end a week of Chinese smartphone tech, more leaked photos and a render showing us what the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is going to look like.

Rumours surrounding the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 are so varied that it is becoming increasingly difficult to figure out what exactly the phone is going to feature and look like. To recap, sources say that their will be around 4 different variants of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, from a more simple flat screened version to a top end model with curved display and dual rear cameras.

This mornings images come in two forms, the first set are actual photos of a curved display phone running a MIUI ROM, and the last image is a render based on all the leaks so far.

Gizchina News of the week

Leading with the real photos, it is hard to get overly excited from these photos alone. Yes, they do show a curved display and yes we can see Xiaomi MIUI ROM (or at least a theme) in there too. The issue is that this could be any of the current curved screen phones (Vivo, Samsung) with a MIUI theme installed, there are no distinguishing features that prove this is an all new device.

So this leaves us with the render. Again, it’s not too exciting as this is doesn’t appear to be an official render, but it does give us an idea of what the Xiaomi Mi Note too could look like and it sums up the main features of the phone too.

The render shows a curved front and rear, front fingerprint scanner, dual rear cameras and lists features to include a 5.5-inch OLED display (the original Xiaomi Mi Note was 5.7-inch), Snapdragon 821 chipset, 6 GB RAM and 128GB memory.

Although none of these images are confirmed, I do like the look of that render and am interested to know what a phone with curved front and rear is going to feel like in the palm of your hand.

What do you think of the latest Xiaomi Mi Note 2 news?

      Curved makes for a tighter device, the Galaxy Note 7 is 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9 mm with 5.7 inch and they aren’t even trying to lower the height. The Redmi Note 4 is 151 × 76 × 8.35mm. With curved they could do 5.9 inch in 150-160 height , depending how hard they try, and maybe as low as 76mm width, depending on the curvature and metal frame thickness. Not that Xiaomi is likely to go that big or optimize height but it would be nice if they did.

    i own the mi note pro (SD810 5.7″ 2K) and if they don’t hurry up to release a SD820 or SD821 phablet with at least 5.7 – 6.2 inch, then i’m leaving the xiaomi ship after 5 years. there is no high end phablet from xiaomi 🙁

    Mi note is by far the best and most quality xiaomi device up to date.
    I bought just for trying a black Mi Note (not the pro) about 3 months ago at 200€ , as a potential present for someone close , friend or relative.
    But after 2 days of use i just completely loved it!!!!
    We are talking about a very beautiful device , an absolutely wonderful screen (even not 2k and 1080p at 5.7 inches is trully remarkable), a great form factor (i had a limit of 5 inch devices but 5.7 at that size is the perfect combination for every use and i will never go back), and the most important astonishing build quality!!!!!!
    I wouldnt exaggerate if i said that it is even beter build than most of the 2015 and 2016 flagship smartphones. Most of other phones , especially midrange feel like toys in my hands!
    Xiaomi surely picked materials from the top top shelf for it.

    So, Mi note 2 MUST be the best device of the company until today and not a disappointment as the Mi5.

    Even as a Note 7 copy as it seems , there should be no compromises in the build quality in relation to its price.

    If i am not wrong i see chinese market is promoting overpriced devices like OPPO and VIVO but with great quality , great design , cameras , sound , and screens (espesially VIVO).
    I believe this is the path Xiaomi must follow with Mi note 2. Top quality , the best available features of 2016 including camera and sound , even at VIVO price.

    This curve reminds me of the LG concept but not quite that and that’s not bad but it will distort the image quite a bit and they need software solutions to mitigate that.Not doing anything about it would be problematic. The Note 7 has a very tight radius and they can get away with it without software fixes.
    The LG concept

      I can’t see strong resemblance with this LG concept.
      IMHO front is VIvo Xplay 5’s (except the home button Xplay hasn’t) and back is Mi5’s
