Xiaomi’s Redmi line has always been affordably-priced but never featured any flagship specs. With the new Redmi Note 2, it seems like things are changing (massively) for the better. The new devices will be running on an Octa-Core Helio processor; outputting on a 5.5″ FullHD Display; and taking pictures with a 13MP Samsung camera with Phase Detection Autofocus. What’s more, even the highest end 32GB ROM model will only cost roughly PHP 7,200. That is, if you can grab one in China, where it was announced officially so far.
|Brand||Device||Launch Date||Launch Price (SRP)||Lowest Price||Processor||Display||Version (At Launch)||Skin||Rear Camera||Front Camera||RAM / ROM / MicroSD||Battery||Telephony||Extra Connectivity||USB OTG / SD Install||Miscellaneous||Updates||Links||Buy Online||UI Smoothness||Antutu Score||Work Battery|
|||Xiaomi||Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Prime||2015-08-13 (China)||7200 (PHP Est.) 999 (RMB)||2.2Ghz Octa-Core MediaTek 6795 64-bit (Helio X10)||5.5" 1920x1080 IPS||5.0 Android Lollipop||MIUI 7.0||13MP LED Flash Phase Autofocus||5MP||2GB / 32GB / Yes||3060 mAh||Dual SIM LTE (TDD-LTE & FDD-LTE)||IR|
|||Xiaomi||Xiaomi Redmi Note 2||2015-08-13 (China)||6000 or 6500 (PHP Est.) 799 or 899 (RMB)||2.0Ghz Octa-Core MediaTek 6795 64-bit (Helio X10)||5.5" 1920x1080 IPS||5.0 Android Lollipop||MIUI 7.0||13MP LED Flash Phase Autofocus||5MP||2GB / 16GB / Yes||3060 mAh||Dual SIM LTE (TD-SCDMA Variant or FDD-LTE Variant)||IR|
As you can tell, there’s two variants of the base version – a TDD-LTE + TD-SCDMA version for RMB 799, and a TDD-LTE & FDD-LTE variant for RMB 899. The Prime variant will be priced at RMB 999 and will have TDD-LTE & FDD-LTE. All three will be running on the newly announced MIUI 7, which is based on Android 5.0.
That is cool and all, especially at those prices, but as with most new Xiaomi China announcements we won’t know when or if it will be brought to us here in the Philippines. We sure hope they would – because a Helio device at that price would be awesome.
