So the wrap has been taken off the new offering from the western giant that is Xiaomi. The Mi Note 2 can be everything the Note 7 needed to be at a much cheaper price point.
Ironically the device takes a lot of design cues from Samsung’s Note 7 as well, thanks to its curved edges of the screen. Thus, making it one of the first Non-Samsung devices to have and edged screen.
Another design cue comes in the form of the rounded fingerprint sensor beneath the glass and also the 3D curved glass on the back giving you the symmetry that was all the hype with the Note 7.
The Mi Note 2 is quite the beast on paper. It comes packed with a 5.7’ OLED display, a Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB or 6GB of Ram, 22.56mp IMX 318 sensor from Sony, 64GB or 128GB storage, a 4070 mAh battery, with quick charge 3.0.
For all the audiophiles out there, the Mi Note 2 has the new Aqstic audio processor which offers listeners access to 192KHZ/24-bit HI-FI sound.
The device starts from $413usd for the 4GB RAM/64GB variant to $516usd for the 6GB Ram/128GB version.
Does this sound like a phone ready to pick up where the Note 7 couldn’t? Let us know in the comments if this is a phone you would be willing to have here in Trinidad.
