After a bit of a hiatus, Xiaomi gave their Mi Note series a bit of a revamp. For those new here, the Mi Note series from Xiaomi is the lineup of high-end phablets from the company. The new phone is known as the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, let’s take a quick look at the specifications.
It turns out that rumours around the flexible display were true. However, unlike what some rumours may have suggested, you will still not be able to bend the display at home. We’re still a few years away from that.
Mi Note 2 Global Edition
Coming back, the Mi Note 2 has a Global variant which supports a total of 22 LTE bands. The Mi Note 2 definitely has a very Samsung Galaxy Note7 aura about it, but Xiaomi will hope it doesn’t have the same fate.
Here’s the list of the 37 bands it’ll support:
- GSM: 2/3/5/8
- CDMA 1X: 0/1/10/15
- WCDMA: 1/2/4/5/8
- TD-SCDMA: 34/39
- LTE-TDD: 38/39/40/41
- LTE-FDD: 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/17/18/19/20/25/26/28/29/30
There’s no clarity on what this exactly means; the Global Edition is probably what’ll debut in the few other markets where Xiaomi directly operates besides China. Other than that, you can expect hoarders and resellers to have plenty stock of the Mi Note 2 Global Edition.
