So in spite of all those rumors claiming that a new flagship device from Xiaomi was coming, the company has just launched a newer variant of the last year’s Mi Note 2.
There were quite a few rumors buzzing recently that Xiaomi was gearing up for the launch of a new flagship device which was being presumed to be the successor of the Mi Mix or a Plus variant of the Mi6 but unfortunately all of these rumors proved to be false, the company did release a phone today, but it was not a new one rather a newer variant of a pre-existing model.
The Mi Note 2 was launched last year and offered two options, one with 4GB/64GB while the other one offered 6GB/128GB, and now the company has launched a middle variant which comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.
The device is available for sale in China currently and comes at a price of around 2699 Yuan which roughly equates to $380/ INR 24,500.
Other specs remain the same, the device is running on a Quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor clocked at 2.3Ghz, the graphics unit is the same Adreno 540, and the battery stands at a massive 4070 mAH with support for Quick Charge 3.0 as well. The device supports a 5.7 inch AMOLED full HD display which is curved from both the sides and also on the back as well. The camera on the rear is a 22.5MP Sony IMX318 sensor with an aperture of F/2.0, the front of the phone hosts an 8MP Sony IMX 318 sensor with features such as 76 degrees wide angled view. The rear cam also comes with tons of features such as laser autofocus, 4k video recording, and Electronic image stabilization as well.
