Xiaomi launched its latest flagship smartphone Mi Note 2 on October 25. The highlight of the Mi Note 2 is the use of both front and back 3D curved glass. The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will be available in three versions: 4GB RAM/ 64GB version, 6GB RAM/ 128GB version and Global version 6GB RAM/ 128GB. Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is equipped with a 5.7-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) OLED flexible display with a 77.2 percent screen-to-body ratio and a 110 percent NSTC gamut.

Design & Display
Like its predecessor, the Mi Note, the Mi Note 2 has an aluminum frame and a glass back with curved edges, but instead of the previous design. The Mi Note 2 comes with a dual-curved design on both the front and the back, much like Samsung’s Note 7. The Mi Note 2 features a 5.70-inch flexible OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels. It provides an sRGB mode and a control for adjusting the display’s color temperature. Another obvious change from the previous model is the addition of a capacitive fingerprint sensor. The pill-shaped sensor, which sits below the screen and is flanked by capacitive navigation buttons, keeps the lower bezel relatively slim, giving the Mi Note 2 a screen-to-body ratio of 77.2%.
The dual speaker, USB Type C port are located at the bottom of the phone.
On the top side of the Mi Note 2, there are 3.5mm earphone jack, noise reduction Mic, infrared transmitter.
The power button and volume button are located at the right side of the phone.
The Mi Note 2 is equipped with a 22.56-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX318 Exmor RS sensor, an f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and EIS with its own 3-axis gyroscope for 4K video stabilization. On the front side of the Mi Note 2 there is an 8MP shooter with a Sony IMX268 sensor. Unlike most selfie cameras currently on the market, it is not a fixed focus module and comes with autofocus. It has an aperture of f/2.0 as well and a few additional Xiaomi optimizations, like improved group selfies and Beautify3.0.

The Mi Note 2 is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 821 SoC with a max clock speed of 2.35GHz, which is the same as the Mi 5s Plus. It coupled with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of flash storage (UFS 2.0) space.
