Xiaomi has worked on the design and weight of the Redmi Note 2 and it is both slimmer and lighter than its predecessor.
For those who don’t know, Xiaomi has a budget line of smartphones called Redmi, but they’ve kind of fallen off our radar for some time. The MIUI 7 was recently launched in China. The Redmi Note 2 bears a price tag of 899 yuan (Rs 9,000 approximately) whereas the Redmi Note 2 Prime has been priced at 999 yuan (Rs 10,000 approximately).
There will be 2GB of RAM accompanying the device and from what we know, there will be support for removable storage such as microSD, just in case 16/32GB isn’t enough for you guys. If you liked what you saw at TENAA, and happen to live in China the Redmi Note 2 is launching today.
As some of our readers might be aware of, tomorrow Xiaomi is expected to hold a press conference where its latest proprietary user interface for Android OS – MIUI 7 – will be officially unveiled. It will be overlaid with Xiaomi’s new MIUI 7 proprietary software.
The 3G only variant of the Redmi Note 2 has been priced at CNY 799, while its 4G variant will cost buyers CNY 899.
The chipset features a 64-bit octa-core Cortex A53 processor that clocks at 2.2 GHz. In line with the earlier leak, the phone will feature a 5.5-inch with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The device supports dual-SIM functionality. On the HTC One ME, the processor serves up computing prowess to a device sporting 5.2-inch quad-HD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 20-megapixel primary rear camera, a 4-megapixel selfie camera in addition to a fingerprint sensor.
One of the features is face detection mode in the Gallery app, that can recognize faces and sort images according to the people in it in the People tab. The company at the launch teased that the Redmi Note 2 can hit an Antutu score of 54024, which is more than some of the competitors from Meizu and Huawei.
