At an event held in Beijing, China earlier today, Xiaomi unveiled the much-awaited Mi Note 2 smartphone. It boasts of featuring dual-curved 3D glass which basically means 3D curved glass both on the front and back panel. This approach is quite similar to what we have seen in the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the notoriously famous Galaxy Note 7.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 sports a 5.7-inch Full HD OLED flexible display. Under the hood, it has a 2.35GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. The phone has been made available in two main variants: 4GB RAM with 64GB storage and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage.
On the back, the smartphone has a 22.56MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus, and EIS for 4K video stabilization. It is a Sony Exmor RS IMX318 sensor. On the front, Xiaomi has opted for an 8MP shooter but with autofocus which makes it the first phone to support this feature in the selfie camera.
The whole package is powered by a 4070mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. Xiaomi also boasted of global LTE support on the Mi Note 2 which means there is support for 37 bands across 6 network types. It also features NFC support and 24-bit/192kHZ DAC for better sound quality.
Xiaomi has launched the Mi Note 2 in two color variants: Piano Black and Glacier Silver. While the first one is basically a Black color variant, the second is a “special color” as it reflects different colors on the basis of lighting conditions.
The Mi Note 2 has been priced at 2799 Yuan (Rs. 27,579/$415) and 3299 Yuan (Rs. 32,506/$485) for 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB variants respectively. If you are from outside of China, you can go for the global variant of the phone with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage for a price of 3499 Yuan (Rs. 34,477/$520).
