Xiaomi’s yet to be announced Mi Note 2 has been subjected to a lot of leaks and rumors over the past few months. We have already come across leaked photos and renders of the phablet that show off the dual edge curved display, just like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Now, the phablet has also passed China’s 3C (China Compulsory Certification), hinting that the Mi Note 2 launch could be closer. However, it is worth pointing out that the phablet hasn’t cleared TENAA as yet. Also Read - Mi Band X strapless smart band with 360-degree flexible display under works?
Based on what we can see in the recently leaked renders, the Mi Note 2 features a dual-edge curved glass display on the front, and a glass back panel, just like the Mi 5. The Mi Note 2 renders also show off the dual camera setup at the back. The front panel also houses a physical home button below the display, which is also expected to double as a fingerprint scanner. While the left edge is likely to house slots for SIM card tray, the right panel has a volume rocker and power / sleep button. The bottom of the phablet shows the USB Type-C port flanked by the speaker grill, whereas the top houses a 3.5mm audio port.

In the camera department – 16-megapixel dual camera setup is expected at the back. It could be Xiaomi’s second smartphone to sport dual camera setup, with the first one being Redmi Pro. The dual cameras would allow users to refocus the photos by adding DSLR-like blur effects.

On the connectivity front, 4G LTE with VoLTE voice calling support, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth, GPS and USB Type-C port are expected.
