Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro Tipped to Sport Snapdragon 821 SoC

Xiaomi’s alleged Mi Note 2 smartphone is already making rounds on the Internet and is rumoured to launch later this month. Now, the alleged Mi Note 2 Pro, which is believed to be the successor to the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro that was launched last year, has leaked online.

According to a Chinese tipster, the Mi Note 2 Pro will sport a 5.5-inch full-HD Amoled display and will pack a 12-megapixel rear camera. The handset is said to be backed by a 3700mAh battery. One of the biggest highlights of the Mi Note 2 Pro will be the recently unveiled Snapdragon 821 SoC. It is likely to come in two versions packing 4GB of RAM with 64GB storage, and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. The Chinese tipster claims that the Mi Note 2 Pro will also come with a fingerprint scanner on the front, much like the Mi 5. The alleged Mi Note 2 Pro is expected to launch in the month of August.

Additionally, a new Xiaomi device codenamed Altun has been spotted in Geekbench listing. The listing was reported by Twitter user Krispi and also claimed that it appeared multiple times on Geekbench listing. The Xiaomi ‘Altun’ in Geekbench single core tests scored 980 while in multi-core tests scored 4076.

All these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt as Xiaomi has not mentioned anything about the upcoming device and the legitimacy of the leaks remains questionable.

A recent report claimed that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 may be priced at CNY 2,499 (approximately Rs. 25,000) for the standard 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage model while the 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage high model will come at CNY 2,999 (approximately Rs. 30,000). There are rumours that a third top-end variant featuring 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage will be also launched priced at CNY 3,499 (approximately Rs. 35,000).
