If rumors are to be believed, Xiaomi is working on the Mi Note 2 that will be launched on July 25. Now a report out of China claims that it isn’t the only new Mi Note phablet in the pipeline. Xiaomi, it seems, is working on the Mi Note 2 Pro as well, which could be launched sometime in the second half of August. As the name suggests, this would be the successor to last year’s Mi Note Pro.

Based on what we have come across so far, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, and it will come in three variants — 32GB (4GB RAM), 64GB (6GB RAM), and 128GB (6GB RAM).

The phablet is also expected to feature a 16-megapixel rear camera, 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, and connectivity options like ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, NFC and 4G support. The top-end 128GB variant is also rumored to boast a Samsung Galaxy S7 edge-like curved display with pressure sensitive technology.
The naming scheme and the leaked specifications and features don’t exactly go hand in hand. Despite having the ‘Pro’ in the name, the leaked specs are lower than the Mi Note 2’s specifications. We would thus advise a bit of caution here.
