Xiaomi's much-awaited smartphone, the Mi Note 2 was launched a couple of months ago and had received rave reviews from critics. Soon after its launch, rumours started hitting the web claiming that a non-curved variant of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is in the works.
Furthermore, a flat screened variant of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was spotted on TENNA (a Chinese telecom regulation authority website) which gave hopes to fans that a flat screened variant with the same specs but a lower price tag will be made available to the users.
However, shattering all those hopes, Xiaomi's marketing director Zang Zhiyuan took it to the company's official blog to confirm that no such device is in the works. If seen from the company's point of view, this decision makes total sense, as launching a more affordable variant of an already reasonably priced smartphone doesn't like a good move.
For the uninitiated, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 features a 5.7-inch AMOLED dual curved display with Full HD resolution. It runs MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. It comes equipped with stellar hardware including quad-core Snapdragon 821 SoC, 22.5MP primary camera, 8MP front camera, and 4GB/64GB storage space. A 6GB/128GB storage space variant is also available.
In terms of connectivity, the smartphone features LTE, HSPA, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, and USB Type-C. A 4,070mAh battery offers juice for the device.
