Xiaomi has been teasing about a smartphone since the past week and everybody assumed it to be the Mi6 Plus. Finally, the company broke the suspense today by introducing a Special Edition of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was launched last year and sported top notch specifications. Since Xiaomi has launched a special edition variant after so long, the natural question that comes to everyone’s mind is ‘whats different?’.
Actually, the special edition smartphone is not a whole lot different. The only difference is the RAM/ROM configuration. While the Mi Note 2 was launched in two variants, one with 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM and the other with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM, the special edition Mi Note 2 comes with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Besides this, all the other specs remain the same.
The Mi Note 2 sports a 5.7-inch dual curved AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. It is powered by the very powerful Snapdragon 821 SoC coupled with the Adreno 530 GPU. All this is backed up by a 4070mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. A fingerprint scanner can be found on the rear.
As for cameras, the Mi Note 2 features a single 22.5MP camera on the rear and an 8MP selfie shooter.
The Special Edition Mi Note 2 will sell for ¥2899 ($426). However, currently there is a discount of ¥300 and the phone now effectively costs ¥2599($382).
