Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Will Be Costly Says Analyst, Get Ready For A $600 Flagship

by Joe 11

Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus were released recently but looks like they are not the only high-end phones that are going to be announced by the company this year. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun confirmed the existence of the Mi Note 2 recently and considering that the specs of the Mi 5S Plus have left us wanting for more, the Mi Note 2 would be a perfect high-end flagship from the company.

Now, the popular Chinese analyst Pan Juitang says that the Mi Note 2 will be priced at 4000 Yuan, which comes to nearly $600! This will make it the costliest flagship from Xiaomi till date. He failed to mention any possible specs of the device, but previous rumors suggest that the Mi Note 2 will come with a curved screen display, dual cameras, 6GB RAM option and more powerful hardware.

It actually makes sense for the Mi Note 2 to be super high-end and costly. Xiaomi’s executives had previously revealed that the company aims to make its mark in the premium segment and the Mi Note 2 will be the perfect phone to do that job. Further, with Samsung Galaxy Note 7 out of the picture, there will be a void to be filled in the premium Android market in the next few months. Xiaomi could aim to cover this void with its new release, provided it comes with the latest technology on board. That’s why it makes sense why the Mi Note 2 will be a relatively costly Xiaomi phone.

Anyway, apart from confirming the existence of the Mi Note 2, Xiaomi’s CEO has practically revealed nothing else about the device. So, we will have to wait for some more concrete details in the next few days. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, let us know if you would be willing to shell out as much as $600 for a Xiaomi flagship.

    Not now as it’s too expensive especially now the pound has plummeted as it makes all Chinese phones more expensive 🙁

    IF they are going to make phones that expensive they need to improve the software.

  • Lastnoob

    They better have good camera processing software then.

  • G’n’T

    This price is too high and most people will be scared away. Especially considering how many phones Xiaomi have released this year and received so poorly. Depending on the specs, I hope this comes in closer to $400.

    i’d rather wait for S8 on Feb..

    So because of the samsung note 7 failures then Xiaomi think they can jack off the price so high using this momentum ??? They forget that outside they still have other fierce competitors like LeEco, OnePlus,etc.

    Time to jump to other brands then if Xiaomi keep increasing their prices. I don’t like to buy premium products with premium prices. If i got a lot of money then why i buy Xiaomi ???? i will buy apple products as Apple brand (like it or not) still carry the exclusive feeling.

    kkkkkk xiaomi trash 600$ , never buy
    xiaomi = apple ???????

  • Mark A

    Not a chance I’d buy if its the usual band 1,3,7,38-41 crap.
    Premium phones need full world bands, software that works out of the box, and a guarantee upgraded to Nougat and ‘Octopus’

    with exposed module MIUI 8 Tweaks from play market miui is very powerful. thank you!

    Nobody can fill the void left by Note 7. What makes the note unique is the best stylus and associated features. For people who want them, there’s no alternative in the market.

    It’s nice to have high-end phones once in awhile, but Xiaomi has been releasing nothing but very expensive phones lately. The reason why we buy these Chinese phones is because of the bargin they give, with the price tag like this, it makes it hard to justify buying a phone with little support, Chinese OS, questionable data bands, etc. They also make a new flagship very few months…
