Xiaomi Redmi Note 2

[ 9TO5Google ] Let’s look at the specs for Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 2:

  • Display: 5.5-inch 1920×1080 LCD
  • CPU: 2.0-2.2GHz 64-bit Octa-core Helio
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Internal Storage: 16GB or 32GB
  • Camera: 13MP Samsung
  • SIM: Dual
  • Battery: 3060mAh
  • OS: Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Color: white, black, pink, brown, light blue

I’d put the Redmi Note 2 a notch below the OnePlus 2, which sports 4GB RAM, optical image stabilization, 64GB of storage, among other features. But then there’s the price: the Redmi Note 2 starts at RMB 799 (about US$124) and maxes out at RMB 999 (about $156). The price is incredible; I wonder if the price will hold when/if Xiaomi sends the Redmi Note 2 across the Pacific. The minimal design looks nice too.
