Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 May Be The Next Flagship Device From Xiaomi
You can make out the hint left by Xiaomi that on January 15th, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 phablet will be introduced as a faster, larger, lighter version of the first model, with improved sound. There is speculation that Xiaomi will introduce the phablet as its new flagship model.
It took some time to decipher the puzzle completely but once you are done, you'll get to know more about the Redmi Note 2. If you want to try to decipher the puzzle, in the source link below is the image released by the company. Try out your luck. It's not very hard.
The image reveals a set of features about the device as well as confirms its the new Redmi Note. Overall, the image says that "our new flagship is the redmi note, thinner, larger, lighter, faster, hifi-sound, and all glass laminate"
This finally clears up any confusion we had about the new flagship device. Also, these features are in line with the other teasers that the company had released a few days back. It really looks like the upcoming Redmi Note 2 is going to be an interesting device. While the company has confirmed the glass finish, it hasn't yet said anything about the curved rear glass that we saw in a few pictures yesterday. But given that the device and its features are more or less similar to what Xiaomi describes its new phone to be, we are quite certain that the curved glass back will end up on the new Redmi Note 2 that will be showcased at the 15 January 2015 event.
The phone is rumored to be priced in the neighborhood of $145-$160. That would be quite a neighborhood for a phone featuring these specs. This includes the expected 5.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. The handset is powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 CPU, or the MediaTek MT6752 processor. 2GB of RAM is expected to be on board along with 16GB of native storage. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP respectively, and a 3100mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.4 is pre-installed with MIUI 6 running on top. The rumored curved glass back for the device is said to be protected by Gorilla Glass.
