In there recent event in Beijing, Xiaomi created quite a buzz around with their launches notably the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 which looks much like the fallen Galaxy Note 7, and the launch of the lookalike could not have come at a better time.
They are just the second to Samsung to feature the dual – curved design on both the front and the back.
Mi Note 2 features a big 5.7 inch OLED curved display, however the panel is said to be a FHD display rather than QHD display.
Screen – to – body ratio of 77.2% looks quite good but the screen is not just it, the device is powered by Snapdragon 821 SoC with a max clock speed of 2.35 GHz. The chipset is working in harmony with up to 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and as much as 128GB of snappy UFS 2.0 storage. 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is the other available option.
As on the camera front, there are zero compromises with the standard one lens 22.56MP Sony IMX318 Exmor sensor with a f/2.0 lens. The camera comes with a EIS digital stabilization at upto 4K quality.
It works through a dedicated 3-axis gyroscope and promises excellent real-time jitter compensation. You also get the benefits of a hybrid PDAF and contrast autofocus system, dual-tone LED flash and Xiaomi’s proprietary low-light and long-exposure technologies.
On the front side of the Note 2 there is an 8MP shooter with a Sony IMX268 sensor. Unlike most selfie cameras, it is not a fixed focus module and comes with autofocus. It has an aperture of f/2.0 as well and a few additional Xiaomi optimizations, like improved group selfies and Beautify 3.0.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 comes equipped with global LTE support across 6 network types and a total of 37 bands. There is a high-precision GPS module inside and a fully functional NFC module.
