The well-received “Xiaomi Mi Note Pro” is reportedly gearing up to welcome the successor, “Xiaomi Mi Note 2.” The original Mi Note Pro comes packed with top-of-the-shelf configurations and a nominal price tag. Now, a new report from China reveals the key specifications, features and release date of the upcoming successor, which is believed to flaunt cutting-edge features.

Going by a Weibo report shared by the credible tipster @Leaksfly, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will come with a huge 5.7-inch display, packed with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 515 ppi.

Under the hood, the handset was initially expected to be powered by none other than the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. But then, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 release date has reportedly been set for Nov. 5. This means, before Qualcomm could release its new chipset, the Note 2 will be launched. Hence, Phone Arena said that the upcoming device could be powered by a MediaTek MT6797 Helio X20 chip instead.

The new chip will apparently work in tandem with a cool deca-core CPU. Nonetheless, the same site also said that there could be two versions of the Note 2 and the second one could come powered by Snapdragon 820 chip, with a release date set in 2016.

Furthermore, this Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is believed to come backed by a killer 4 GB of RAM, while many flagship devices are still reveling with a 3 GB unit. When it comes to memory specification, the phone will come equipped with 32 GB of internal storage space. However, there is currently no information available on the microSD card slot.

The handset will reportedly run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, straight out of the box. Plus, a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera unit and a fingerprint scanner can also be expected. Apart from the standard connectivity options, 4G LTE will also be supported by the Xiaomi handset.
