Xiaomi Mi Note 2 leaked renders hint at ultra-thin bezels, dual-camera setup and fingerprint sensor


After much speculations Xiaomi took the wraps off the Redmi Note 2 and Redmi Note 2 Prime last month in China. Xiaomi however has yet to unveil the successor to theMi Note, and now a leak from China hints at what the Mi Note 2 could look like.

Leakster @KJuma has shared a couple of renders on Weibo, allegedly showing the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. In terms of the design, the smartphone looks quite similar to its predecessor, albeit with ultra-thin bezels. Towards the bottom is a squarish home button, which could be housing a fingerprint sensor underneath.

At the back is a dual-camera setup along with dual-LED flash. As seen on HTC’s smartphones one of the lenses will be the primary camera, while the other lens will measure depth of field.

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 specifications: From what we have come across so far, the forthcoming phablet is expected to feature a 5.7-inch QHD display and powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM.

The phablet is also expected to include 32GB/64GB internal storage, 23-megapixel rear camera, 12-megapixel selfie camera, 3,500mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge support, and on the software front, run on MIUI 7 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

There is no word on when Xiaomi is planning on launching the Mi Note 2. But with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset set to arrive on smartphones in the first quarter next year, it is safe to assume that the phablet will be unveiled sometime around that time.
