Xiaomi Released Its Flagship Mobile Mi Note 2 (Rate and Specifications) as a Replacement Of Samsung S7

Xiaomi has launched the much awaited, Mi Note 2 at the 'Curved to Impress' event in Beijing. The phone is a stark deviation from Xiaomi's design language so far. The most noticeable difference being, a dual-curved screen, much like Samsung's Galaxy Note 7.

While we expect the company to deliver similar performance, Note 7 won't be an ideal to stick with. The 'two-sided curved design' will incorporate a 3D curved glass which does not sport a Galaxy S7 Edge like curve but definitely gives the illusion of a bezel-less screen.

The Note 2 will be launched in three variants out of which India might just get one initially. The Mi Note 2 will be available in 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM at CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 27,600), 6GB RAM and  128GB ROM at priced at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 32,600), and the Global Edition 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM priced at CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 34,500). The device will go on sale in China on November 1.

The Global Edition will come with support for international cellular networks (37 LTE networks). The device will be available in Piano Black and Glacial Silver colour variants, and an aluminium build.

The device will be powered by Snapdragon 821 that is clocked at 2.35 GHz. The screen still comes with a resolution of 1920x1080 but supports a 110 percent NSTC gamut. A 4070mAH battery will power the 5.7 inch display. It will also feature Quick Charge 3.0 technology.

In terms of camera, the device comes equipped with 22.56-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX318 Exmor RS sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and EIS with its own 3-axis gyroscope for 4K video stabilisation. As far as the front cam is concerned, the device houses an 8 Megapixel camera.

Availability of the device in India is still not confirmed but considering Xiaomi's special emphasis on the Indian market in the past, the device should hit the shelves before the end of this year.
