Xiaomi released the Mi Note 2 back in November. The dual-curved phone was originally available in black and silver. However, at CES 2017, they unveiled three additional colors (pink, green, and blue) for the device. That brings it to five colors, right? But why stop there?
According to Xiaomi Founder Lei Jun, the Mi Note 2 will be available in coral blue as well. On his Weibo page, you will find pictures of his skiing trip in Switzerland in which he is holding a blue phone he has confirmed to be the Mi Note 2.
The Mi Note 2 is already referred to as a Galaxy Note 7 alternative. Releasing it (Mi Note 2) in one of the original colors (Blue Coral) of the Note 7 might actually be smart but some will still see it as a sort of imitation. But we guess Xiaomi is just taking advantage of the situation. So if you have been waiting for one more reason to pick up the phone, you have it already.
Xiaomi’s Mi Note 2 has a 5.7-inch dual-curved OLED 1080p display, 6GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB of storage, and a Snapdragon 821 SoC. There is a 22.56MP rear camera with EIS and 3-axis gyroscope and an 8MP front facing camera. There is a fingerprint scanner up front and a 4070mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
There is no news yet as to when the coral blue variant will be available but we guess it should be the same time as the other three new colors.
