Mi Note 2 debuts with 5.7-inch flexible OLED screen and Global LTE support

A new smartphone has launched called the Mi Note 2 and it had details leaked only a few days ago. Now with the device official we know all of what it has to offer under the hood. The smartphone does have a flexible 5.7-inch OLED screen that has a higher screen to body ratio than the iPhone 7 plus. That means less border around the screen. That curved screen is significantly more costly to make according to reports with a price six times that of a normal 5.5-inch full HD display.

Another big feature of the Mi Note 2 is that it supports LTE globally with coverage for six types of LTE and 37 bands. With global LTE support there is no reason this smartphone can't come to the US or anywhere else. The OS that the smartphone runs is MIUI 8 and the device measures 156.2 x 77.3 x 7.6mm and weighs in at 166G.

The processor under the hood is a Snapdragon 821 running at 2.53GHz max and it promises 10% faster launching of large apps. That processor is paired with either 6GB or 4GB of RAM. Internal storage is 64GB or 128GB and there is no microSD card slot for storage expansion. This will likely be the biggest downfall of the smartphone.

The camera is a big focus for the Mi Note 2 with a 22.56MP Sony IMX318 F2.0 sensor featuring EIS hardware level 4K video stabilization. The front camera is an 8MP Sony IMX268 F2.0 image sensor. Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS. Power comes from a 4070 mAh internal battery and the smartphone has a fingerprint sensor, USB 2.0 Type-C port, Quick Charge 3.0, and a dual nano-SIM slot.

The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage version sells for RMB 2799, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage sells for RMB 3299, and the 6GB RAM and 128GB global LTE version is RMB 3499. Mi Note 2 launches on November 1.
