Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has a gem on its hands if the alleged screenshot of its upcoming Mi Note 2 is true. As shown in the photo, it could possibly sport 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage - a first in smartphone history.
The phone will launch alongside Mi 5S, GSM Arena reported. Under the hood, the Mi Note 2 reportedly runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with a clock speed of 2.6 GHz for the Snapdragon 821 chipset. The device is also reported to have a 5.7 AMOLED screen with dual-camera set-up.
Currently, OnePlus 3 sits arguably at the top of the smartphone specifications game with 6GB of RAM. If the screenshot leak is proven to be true, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will become the OnePlus 3 killer.
No handsets have yet to launch Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box although the LG V20 and the modern Nexus phones are confirmed to run under it. Mi Note 2 will reportedly be pegged at 2,999 Yuan or roughly priced at $375 in the US, Android Pit reported.
As for design, the Mi Note 2 is said to feature curves and front edges that are similar to Samsung Galaxy Note 7. There were also other photos circulating online showing that the smartphone will sport a USB type-C port and a standard volume rocker on the side with a headphone jack and microphone on the top of the device.
Do note that the leaked screenshot could have been easily manipulated so it is best to reserve any expectations. Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is expected to arrive on September 27.
