Purported Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro screenshot has 8GB RAM and Android 7


xiaomi mi note pro 2

Xiaomi will launch 2 new phones in the coming week (well if you believe the rumours) with the larger device of the two rumoured to get a hell of a lot of RAM and the latest version of Android.

We’ve been hearing a lot about the new phones from Xiaomi, in fact you all probably know the specs off the top of your head by now, but if not….

Expected to launch on the 27th September are the Xiaomi Mi5s and a larger phone either called the Xiaomi Mi5s Plus or the Mi Note 2 Pro. The Mi5S is just what is sounds like and will be a faster version of the current Mi5 and get a new ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

The larger phone is expected to get those features too, but in addition could also receive a dual rear camera, curved display and (according to this purported screenshot) 8GB RAM and Android 7.0.

Also revealed in the scene shot is the internal memory and a 2.6Ghz Snapdragon 821 chipset too.

The leak comes from Weibo user @Kjuma who has been pretty accurate in the past when informing us about other leaked smartphones. There is only 6 days to wait and see if he is correct this time, do you think he is?

    This “let’s shove as much RAM as possible” trend is getting ridiculous

      Wait for the 12gb of ram

        Q2 2017 !

        I was so bored of using only 75% of my 4GB RAM. Next year I’ll be using only 35% of my 8GB RAM which is a lot more satisfying, and pretty soon only 20% of my 12GB RAM. Heavenly.

      Happened with laptops a few years back and now it’s happening with phones. Manufacturers need those “back of the box” features to advertise.

        The iphone 7 only has 2GB of ram !

        So whats the game ?

          iOS is optimized completely different than Android, it doesn’t need nearly as much RAM to run.

            Makes sense. Although sounds a bit crazy.

              Android itself has something similar built into it, GooglePlay will check for updates of Apps every 24 hours and if you have it set up it will install them without you ever knowing.

    The Mi5 Plus is continuing the Mi NOTE model which is changing the name,And the Mi Note 2 Pro is continuing the MI NOTE PRO model,on the 27.09.2016 is going to be the presentation of MI5s and MI5 plus.So the 8gb RAM will be something normal in later date release for the MI NOTE PRO 2 and this the new trend just put as much Memory you can so to be WOW effect.
    They should concentrate on UI,Camera Quality and Battery

      UI is something that Xiaomi never stops concentrating on, their UI is one of the biggest selling features of their phones.

      Who cares LeEco while there are brands like Elephone, Bluboo, Umi, Oukitel and several others?

      This site doesn’t cover good phones anymore, they also don’t do reviews anymore. Unless LeTV starts to do comparison videos against the iPhone they won’t cover it.

        …or, unless letv start to pay them…

        Seriously, I’m not that upset for all of the ads, if something isn’t interesting I just don’t read it… But, for faq sake!!! A flagship from a good brand launched many hours ago, and they spent time to write something about elephone’s capacitive buttons ignoring completely letv!!! What’s wrong with them?!

        • balcobomber25
          September 22, 2016

          Most of these sites have these Ads, but the difference is this site has all but stopped doing reviews. Every month you might get one review.

            Definitely… I asked once “is there any chance to see a leeco cool1 review in the future?”, than I stopped when I realized I should have asked “is there any chance to see ANY review at all in the future?”

              It’s crazy. This used to be the go to site for reviews of Chinese phones. Now Android Headlines, Android Authority and several others are much better.

    I will buy Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro immediately, but only if the audio system will be as good or even better than in Xiaomi Mi Note Pro or Vivo XPlay 5 Elite/Ultimate. Please put at least the exact audio sub-module from old, but very, very decent Xiaomi Mi Note Pro, or maybe replacing ES9018(K2M) DAC with fresher mobile version of ES9028 as an improvement (but only if it present a real improvement in SQ). I’m a big fan of Xiaomi (my whole family has Xiaomi phones), but I have to carry with me a secondary one: Meizu MX4 Pro as a player only, because of decent audio sub-system it has, and my primary Xiaomi Mi5 unfortunately doesn’t.
    ES9018K2M (or ES9028, or any newer/newest top mobile ESS DAC) chip is quite chip (a few USD), so if there is a place inside of this phone, it should find its place here.
