Xiaomi is expected to release two new handsets in the next few weeks, namely the Xiaomi Mi5S and the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Both these handsets are expected to be released in the second half of the year, which means their launch could be anytime soon. Looks like the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 would be the first one to meet us this year as Xiaomi released a new teaser earlier today, and from the image, it could be hinting at the upcoming smartphone.
As you can see in the image above, the new teaser says 2>5. Well, we know Xiaomi has the Mi5 flagship in the market and then there’s the Mi Note 2 that’s coming soon. Considering this information, it looks like the company is teasing that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is better than the Mi5. But that would mean that the company is degrading its own flagship Mi5, which doesn’t make sense. So, what Xiaomi might actually be trying to say here is that the Mi Note 2 is going to be much bigger than the Mi5. Well this, we knew from the start as this year’s Mi Note 2 is also expected to come with a 5.7-inch display as its predecessor. On the other hand, the Mi5 is much more compact, featuring a 5.15-inch display.
As for the variants of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, it is said there will be at least three models in the lineup. In fact, one of these models is even expected to come with a curved-edged display, which won’t be surprising given that we have been hearing about this version for the past few weeks. What’s more, there are even talks about dual cameras at the back and pressure sensitive display that’s better than Huawei’s Force Touch.
The top-end variants of the Mi Note 2 should retail for more than 4000 Yuan ($600) considering the recent comments by the company co-founder.
