Xiaomi's next monster phablet made an unexpected appearance on Tuesday courtesy of a leaked photo obtained by GSMDome. The leaked image shows the rear-back panel of the supposed Redmi Note 2.
While the back panel looks very similar to the current-generation Redmi Note. The phone appears to retain the plastic back, just like the existing device.
In addition to that, the alleged photos shows an 8-megapixel camera module, which is not in line with previous rumors.
Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Redmi Note 2 in the coming weeks to come. The company originally unveiled the Redmi Note in July this year, featuring a large 5.5-inch 720p HD screen and an 8-core processor under the hood.
The Chinese handset maker Xiaomi is hoping to make huge impact with its upcoming Redmi Note 2. The company was the No.1 smartphone maker in China in the second quarter of the year, according to research firm Canalys. While new reports suggest Xiaomi is the third-largest smartphone maker in the word, beating heavy weights including LG and Sony.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p Full HD color display, 1.7GHz Mediatek's MT6592 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 5-megapixel front cameras, and a 3,000mAh battery inside.
Xiomi's business is growing rapidly in Asia, including India. The Redmi 1S maker is expected to launch the original Redmi Note in the country later this year. The phone will be priced at Rs. 9,999.
