Its almost time to see the new Xiaomi Redmi 2 model. According to the latest teasers, it looks like we may see the phablet as soon as Aug 13, when Xiaomi announces the new MIUI version. But before that, we have caught a glimpse of the upcoming device, thanks to a leak from a Chinese tipster on Weibo.
As you can see in the image above, we can see the new Redmi Note 2 handset placed just above its box. The design looks similar to the existing Redmi Note version. We also get to see its specification, which is once again similar to the one that was leaked before.
The new Redmi Note 2 will come with the Mediatek MT6795 oct-core chip, which is usually used in high-end flagships. There will be 2GB of RAM on board along with 16GB of internal storage. Up front, the phone will feature a full HD 1920 x 1080p display. The rear camera will be of 13MP while there will be a 5MP camera at the back. The phone will be powered by a 3100mAh battery and will run on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop version. Finally, it will measure 8.05mm in thickness and weigh about 159 grams.
These specs are much better than the current Redmi Note version. But it is said that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 model with 2GB RAM is also in the works. We will probably see these two variants when its announced on Aug 13.
We are still not sure about the pricing, with recent rumors claiming that the phone will sell for $177, instead of $127 as previously said.
