The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 (3G+4G) and the Redmi Note 2 Prime have 5.5-inch FullHD IPS display with a 1080×1920 pixels resolution and 401ppi pixel density. The Redmi Note 2 was unveiled at an event in China and has been now priced at CNY 899 which almost equates to Rs 9,000/$140 while the Redmi Note 2 Prime has been priced at CNY 999 which is slightly higher at Rs 10,000/$156. We’re here to talk about Xiaomi’s software, a new version of their Android-based MIUI OS.
Xiaomi has launched the successor to the Redmi Note. And with price-tags like those Samsung must be turning titanium gray at the prospect of Xiaomi taking its devices to the U.S. – something which has not happened yet, but which Xiaomi’s global VP (and ex-Googler) Hugo Barra has hinted it’s looking to do in the next year or two. Some rumors claim that the upcoming Redmi Note 2 will retail at $175.
On Monday, Xiaomi India announced the launch premiere of MIUI 7, which would be on August 19 in New Delhi via a tweet: “MIUI7 is here!”
The MI 5 is expected to come powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 3030mAh battery.
Under the hood, the handset is said to pack a 64-bit MediaTek (MT6795) octa-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM and Adreno 405 GPU. On the HTC One ME, the processor serves up computing prowess to a device sporting 5.2-inch quad-HD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory, 20-megapixel primary rear camera, a 4-megapixel selfie camera in addition to a fingerprint sensor.
Xiaomi has provided the latest MIUI 7 on the Redmi Note 2 that is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.
