Xiaomi unveils Mi Note 2 with curved OLED display, Snapdragon 821 & up to 6GB RAM

The successor to last year's Mi Note is here!

Xiaomi has officially unveiled the Mi Note 2 flagship phablet, which sports  a 5.7-inch dual-curved FHD display with flexible OLED panel, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage.

The back of the phone flaunts a curved glass, resulting in a symmetrical design that is quite similar to Samsung's Galaxy Note7. Located at the back is its 22.56-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX 318 sensor with EIS (electronic image stabilization) and 4K video stabilization. Meanwhile, on the front is its an 8-megapixel front shooter. The phone also continues Xiaomi's focus on high-end audio, with a built-in DAC that supports 24bit/192kHz audio

The Mi Note 2 houses a 4070mAh battery, which supports Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0.

Compared to certain older Xiaomi phones that seem to suffer from poor GPS performance, the Mi Note 2 touts better GPS signal, particularly when traveling through tunnels, through a technology called sensor-assisted positioning (SAP).

The phablet comes in Piano Black and Glacier Silver color options, and is  now available for pre-order in China.

Two variants will be available: a base model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage for RMB 2,799 (approx. PhP 19,900) and a higher-end version with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage for RMB 3,299 (approx. PhP 23,500).
