According to Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 2 is essentially the successor to the Redmi Note from 2014.
For those who don’t know, Xiaomi has a budget line of smartphones called Redmi, but they’ve kind of fallen off our radar for some time.
MIUI 7 also has a handful of new themes, including a pink “Goddess” theme targeted at women and as usual you can download more from the store. The third model, the Redmi Note 2 Prime, will have a 2.2GHz Helio X10 processor, with 32GB internal storage and will have 4G dual SIMs for RMB 999 (Approximately Rs 10,100).
In order to keep the base prices low, Xiaomi has also come up with a 3G only device which will be priced at around Rs 8,000. However, don’t kid yourself, as at this price the Redmi Note 2 is made of plastic. “The much-awaited OS “MIUI 7” will be launched in India on August 19 in New Delhi”.
The all-new Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display.
The Redmi Note 2 will have a 13 MP rear camera and frontal camera of 5 MP.
The dual-SIM handset supports 4G and comes with 16GB storage onboard.
It is powered by a 2GHz MediaTek Helio x10 octa-core processor and 2GB LPDDR3 RAM.
There’s also a auto-organizing new face recognition feature in MIUI 7’s Gallery which identifies individuals in the user’s photo and groups images together – so you can presumably get a feed of every selfie you ever took.
The 13MP camera at the back (both Samsung and OmniVision were mentioned as suppliers) comes with phase-detection autofocus and a focus speed of just 0.1 seconds. The company at the launch teased that the Redmi Note 2 can hit an Antutu score of 54024, which is more than some of the competitors from Meizu and Huawei.
