Evidently, January 2015 is likely to be a very busy period for Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi . While the company is scheduled to launch the Redmi 1S successor on January 4, a new report suggests that the next iteration of the Redmi Note phablet could be launched on January 15.
The alleged Xiaomi Redmi Note 2, just like its predecessor is expected to be an affordable one at that. However, the device will reportedly be high on features, as is now quite a known thing about Xiaomi.
That said, going by its tipped specifications, the alleged Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is expected to be a power house of a device.
The alleged device is expected to feature a 5.5-inch LCD display with a 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution. It is expected to be powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 615 or MediaTek MT6752 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The two processor variants could mean separate 3G and 4G versions of the device like the original.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 will reportedly come with 16GB of internal storage and is likely to run Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box with the company's MIUI 6 UI on top.
It is expected to sport a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera. It is further touted to deck in a 3100mAh battery.
With the little information we have, the said device is likely to carry a price tag of $160, while some rumours also suggest that it could be priced as low as $145.
