Xiaomi has announced that it will unveil the successor to last year’s Mi Note in China on October 25. Dubbed the Mi Note 2, the phone will feature a dual curved display similar to that of the Galaxy S7 edge, along with high-end internals in the form of a Snapdragon 821 SoC.
The official invite is light on details, but recent rumors suggest the phone will come with a 5.7-inch Full HD display, 4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, 12MP dual rear cameras, and a 4000mAh battery. Xiaomi will also roll out a Pro version with a 5.7-inch QHD display, 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Xiaomi introduced a rear camera setup in the Mi 5s, so it is likely we’ll see a similar implementation in the Mi Note 2.
With Samsung being the only vendor to successfully develop sustainable yields of curved AMOLED panels, it is possible Xiaomi is partnering with the South Korean company over the display. Other specs are on par for a high-end flagship in late 2016, and we should know more about the handset next Tuesday. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun said earlier this month that the Mi Note 2 will come with a “surprise,” so it’ll be interesting to see what the have in store for us on October 25.
