Xiaomi Unveils The Mi Note 2

Compare Guru
2016-10-25
Chinese tech upstart, Xiaomi, has unveiled their latest cellphone, the Mi Note 2. It has an uncanny resemblance to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Xiaomi, the Chinese tech upstart, has just unveiled the Mi Note 2 and if you think it bears more than just a striking resemblance to the ill-fated Samsung Galaxy Note 7, you're not the only one. [gallery size="large" ids="15161,15160,15165"]

Uncanny Resemblance to Note 7

Thanks to the dual-curved edge display and the button placement below the display, the Mi Note 2 bears a striking resemblance to the Note 7 phone. The dual-curved edge display seems to be the new 'in thing' with cellphones. Rumour has it that the high-end version of Huawei's Mate 9 will also have a dual-curved display.

Mi Note 2 Features

Looks aside, here's what makes the Mi Note 2 so special:
  • Snapdragon 821 processor
  • 4GB or 6GB RAM
  • 64GB or 128GB flash storage
  • 4070mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0
  • Aqstic audio processor which provides 192KHz / 24-bit Hi-Fi sound
  • 22.56MP rear-facing camera
  • 8MP front-facing camera
  • 5.7-inch flexible OLED display
As per usual, Xiaomi has packed killer specs into its latest handset and is keeping the price below the average high-end smartphone cost.

Launch Date

Currently there is no word of the phone launching in South Africa, or anywhere outside of China. At this stage, the 4GB RAM / 64GB Storage version will cost 2799 yuan (R5705.92 at exchange rate at time of writing), with the high-end 6GB RAM / 128GB storage version going for 3499 yuan (R7132.91 at exchange rate at time of writing).

Cost-Saving

Xiaomi's strength has always been to pack high-end features into low costing handsets, and while we will never know what Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 would have cost had it launched in South Africa, you can bet that it would have cost a lot more than the high-end Mi Note 2.

No Real Negatives

The downside? The Mi Note 2 does not appear to be waterproof and there's no stylus. It is, however, available in two colours, namely  Glacier Silver and the very familiarly named Piano Black. Other than that, the Mi Note 2 looks to be a beast of a handset. Should it come to South Africa, it definitely must be on your list of mobile phones to consider buying, depending on the cost. mobiledeals_article_banner
