The Redmi Note 2 retains a 5.5″ phablet sized display but this time it pushes a higher Full HD 1080p resolution, instead of HD 720p on the current Redmi Note. In terms of design, it looks like a bigger version of the Mi 4i and its rear camera lens is placed right smack in the middle.

Since the Redmi series is often associated for value for money, one would expect an entry to mid-range processor. However the Redmi Note 2 seems to be packing some serious firepower with MediaTek’s 2.0GHz Octa-Core MT6795 processor that’s mated to 2GB of RAM. The processor is a Helio X10 unit, which is rather high-end and could be found on flagship devices like the HTC One M9+ and One E9+.

For storage is gets 16GB which is expandable with microSD. For imaging it has a 13MP main + 5MP front cameras and powering the device is a 3,020mAh capacity battery. In terms of price, the Redmi Note 2 could be carrying a 999 CNY price tag (about RM623) and word has it that there could be an enhanced version that offers more RAM and storage. As expected, it would run on a newer Android 5.1 Lollipop with their latest MIUI 7 skin on top.
