Images of a new #Xiaomi smartphone have surfaced on Chinese social networking site Weibo, revealing what appears to be an all new design. Xiaomi is notorious for borrowing/stealing design ideas from major manufacturers, but it seems like that won’t be the case with this smartphone.
This is not an official image, mind you, so a lot could change by the time the handset is officially revealed. But from what we see here, it’s clear that the company is going with a more modern design with minimal bezels on either side.
The front has a fingerprint scanner toting hardware home key, which isn’t surprising as manufacturers are leaning heavily towards fingerprint scanners. We’ve seen manufacturers like OnePlus and even Sony more recently releasing devices with fingerprint scanners.
The rear portion of the smartphone has dual cameras, which means there could be some 3D imaging features on board. It will be interesting to see what Xiaomi will call this device. The report says that this is the Mi Note 2 (not to be confused with the Redmi Note 2), which could be the successor to the Mi Note that was released earlier this year.
It is believed that the handset will come with a 5.7 inch Quad HD display, a 23-megapixel camera, a 12-megapixel front camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, the octa core Snapdragon 820 SoC, Android 5.1 Lollipop and a 3,500 mAh battery.
