Xiaomi has just introduced its successor to the Redmi Note, aptly named the Redmi Note 2, and it’s quite a stunner when comparing specs and price. The Redmi Note 2 packs in a whole load of specs, so we’ll dive right into it with a full list of the specs for you to peruse:
- 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display
- 2.2GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16GB storage
- 13-megapixel rear camera with phase-detection autofocus
- 3,020mAh battery
- Android 5.1 Lollipop with MIUI 7 overtop
- dual-SIM 4G LTE support
Pricing is set up in three tiers. There will be a 32GB version, sold as the Redmi Note 2 Prime, with 4G LTE connectivity in both SIM slots that will sell for 999 Yuan, or about $160 USD. The 16GB version with 4G LTE connectivity in both SIM slots will be priced at 899 Yuan ($144 USD) and a 16GB version with 4G LTE connectivity in only one slot will run you 799 Yuan ($128 USD). The Redmi Note 2 will be available in five different color options of white, black, pink, brown, and light blue.
Xiaomi is pricing very competitively with the Redmi Note 2, giving it excellent specs for its low price. As of right now, it looks like the device is headed only to China, which is a bit disappointing for all of us outside of the country. That being said, it’s going to be an interesting day when Xiaomi expands its phones to global availability.
