Xiaomi on Tuesday released a teaser signalling that the company is ready to unveil the much-rumoured Xiaomi Mi 5s at an event scheduled on September 27 at the China National Convention Centre in Beijing. While it is almost certain that the Mi 5s will be unveiled on that date, there are also hints that the Mi Note 2 will also make its debut as well. The latest leaks now detail the Mi Note 2 Pro.
Over the past few weeks, there have been numerous leaks regarding the Mi Note 2. The device is rumoured to sport a dual-edge screen with 6GB of RAM. While details of the Mi Note 2 are still speculative, we now have a fresh leak that suggests what could be a Mi Note 2 Pro device. A screenshot posted on Weibo shows the ‘About phone’ page of the alleged Mi Note 2 Pro.
According to the image, the Mi Note 2 Pro will feature a whopping 8GB of RAM with a quad-core 2.6GHz CPU, running the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with MIUI 8 on top. The chipset is likely to be the new Snapdragon 821 which is also rumoured to feature in the Mi Note 2.
While the details on the Mi Note 2 Pro are limited, it is likely that Xiaomi will reveal the device a few months after the launch of the Mi Note 2, as was the case with the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro. It is also possible that the leaked screenshot is simply a variant of the Mi Note 2, which will likely be known in a week from now.
Meanwhile, the Mi Note 2 is rumoured to come in two storage options at 64GB and 128GB. Other rumoured features include a USB Type-C port, 3600mAh battery, two speaker grilles, and a fingerprint sensor at the front.
The Mi Note 2 is expected to be priced around CNY 2,499 (roughly Rs. 25,000) for the 64GB variant and around CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 28,000) for the 128GB option.
