Xiaomi is all set to launch its Mi Note 2 phablet in Beijing, China, today. Just hours before its official launch, alleged images of the smartppone have surfaced online. The three images show the smartphone from the front and back have been shared by the GizmoChina website. The much-speculated smartphone features a dual-curved display, which the company recently confirmed in a teaser image. The images showing the black colour variant of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 further confirm the fact that the smartphone will be featuring a dual-curved display, something like what we have seen in Samsung Galaxy Edge series. A single circular camera is seen at the back along with dual-tone LED flash. This contradicts previous rumours indicating the inclusion of the dual-camera setup.
From the looks of it, the overall design of the handset appears similar to that of Samsung Galaxy Note 7. It is also worth adding that Xiaomi seems to have ditched the capacitive touch buttons placed below the display in the Mi Note and the Mi Note Pro, and has replaced it with a Samsung-like oval physical home button, which might also come embedded with a fingerprint sensor.
As per rumours, Mi Note 2 will come in two variants - one with a 5.7-inch Full HD display, 4GB RAM and 64GB in-built storage, and a second one with a 5.7-inch Quad HD resolution display, 6GB RAM and 128GB/256GB in-built storage. Both variants are said to feature a 16MP rear camera, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 processor, and 4,000mAh battery. The devices would apparently measure 6.5mm in thickness. The 4GB RAM variant is expected to cost CNY 2,499, while the larger 6GB RAM variant might be priced at CNY 2,799. However, there is no information as to when they would hit Indian stores.
