Xiaomi Mi is rumoured to be working on the successor of the Mi Note smartphone which is expected to be revealed on September 5. Now, a new leaked image claims to show the front dual-curved glass panel of the alleged Mi Note 2.
The leaked image purportedly gives an idea that the front of the Mi Note 2 may look like Samsung’s Galaxy S7 Edge which also features dual-curved edges. The leaked glass panels hint that the Mi Note 2 may sport a physical home bottom at the front which is where the company is anticipated to embed the fingerprint scanner. The Mi branding is visible at the top left corner on the front much like other Mi branded handsets. The leaked image has been posted by a tipster on Weibo and was first picked up by Phone Radar.
A recent leak claimed that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 may launch in two variants priced at CNY 2,499 (approximately Rs. 25,000) for the 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage model, and a 128GB storage model priced at CNY 2,799 (approximately Rs. 28,000). Some of the innards of the Mi Note 2 rumoured so far include Amoled display, Snapdragon 821 SoC, 3600mAh battery, metal body, and fingerprint scanner.
The Chinese company is also widely rumoured to be working on the fourth-generation Redmi phone, dubbed Redmi 4, and is expected to launch it on August 25. Reports hint that the Redmi 4 will come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. It is expected to be priced at CNY 699 (approximately Rs. 7,000). Some of the innards tipped for the handset include a 5-inch full-HD display, metal body, fingerprint scanner, and 4100mAh battery with fast charging support.
