Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was announced in October 2016 and if anything, the new Mi Note 3 should also be unveiled in October this year, which is just three months away.
As the company gets ready to unveil the successor to the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, the phone has just received a small discount in China that cuts the price by 300 Yuan. Usually, the Mi Note 2 exchanges hands for 2799 Yuan, but as at the time of this writing, you can grab one for 2499 Yuan.
The Mi Note 2 was announced in the wake of the Galaxy Note 7 debacle and in fact, the phone was seen as the perfect alternative to the red hot Sammy flagship. Featuring a similar design with curved edges, the Mi Note 2, sadly, did not live up to this expectation. Despite coming in with a decent price tag, the phone has been selling sparingly, but now that it has received a price cut in its home country, it could just spur the sales to something better.
As noted, the Chinese company is getting ready to unveil the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and as expected, this could also be another reason as to why there’s a price drop for the Mi Note 2. Just so you know what you are getting into, the phone ships with a 5.7-inch display screen that has a 1080p resolution and under the hood, you get a top-notch Snapdragon 821 SoC paired with a massive 6GB RAM and 128GB of non-expandable storage.
The cameras have a 22.5MP lens on the back and an 8MP lens on the front and keeping it alive is a huge 4070mAh battery that supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 via a USB-C port. Even though the phone has Android Marshmallow out of the box, Xiaomi is currently testing the beta version of Android Nougat on the phone, with the stable version expected to roll out in the coming weeks.
