Xiaomi is expected to formally announce the redmi Note 2 on June 29 since the news was confirmed by the CEO of the brand. The device should also largely go upmarket compared to the previous version of the smartphone.
It’s been many months that the rumors about the Xiaomi Note 2 redmi return regularly on the carpet. By January 2015, some features emerged and leak specialists announced an imminent release. It was actually not the case, but now they announced again formalizing a close on 29 June. Except this time, it is Lei Jun, president of Xiaomi, who confirmed the information directly on his Weibo page.
Regarding the technical characteristics assumed for the purpose, they have changed slightly since January. We always talk of Full HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) screen, which should have a diagonal of 5.5 inches, but the company could opt for an octo-core SoC MediaTek’s MT6795 instead of trusting Qualcomm. It is also strange that mention is made of this SoC, which seems rather reserved for high-end mobile, even as the first name redmi Note is a low-cost smartphone. The camera back photo redmi rating could reach 13 megapixels and the Samsung would S5K3M2 sensor, while the back camera would display 5 megapixel OmniVision would be signed (OV5670).
These specifications are in any case those displayed by the TENAA, the telecommunications certification body in China. As for its construction, some pictures of alleged mobile suggest that the shell is made of metal, which would explain the technical data boosted Mobile, and testify to a real upmarket for this device.
