When a smartphone is about to be released, you can be sure that there will be plenty of fanfare and hype that surrounds it – more so when it is shaping up to be one of the movers and shakers, so to speak. Having said that, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is no stranger to leaks, having first appeared in a TENAA listing earlier this year, along with a rumored leak in the middle of this month. The latest leaked image was purportedly taken from within the manufacturing facility that churns out the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 (among other hardware, this we are quite sure).
Touted to be unveiled on the same day as that of the Huawei Honor 7 and Meizu MX5, interesting times are ahead as all of these apparent flagships from Chinese manufacturers do look like they pack quite a punch – not only on the outside, but underneath the hood as well. In the leaked image, one will be able to see the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 feature a blue frame that surrounds the smartphone, which is a departure from the normal white color that decked the flagship models from Xiaomi in the past.
In terms of hardware, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 looks set to ship with a 5.5” display that will feature a Full HD display at 401ppi pixel density, MediaTek’s MT-6795 SoC running underneath the hood, a 13MP shooter behind and a 5MP selfie camera, a 3,000mAh battery to keep it chugging and Xiaomi’s MIUI 6 that runs on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop.
