The news comes from Chinese publication Tautio, but there are no hints about the surprise as yet. It may have to do something related to the pricing or hardware. Earlier this week, we also came across the Mi Note 2 teaser showing hinting at dual camera setup at the back. This would make the Mi Note 2 the third Xiaomi smartphone to some with dual rear cameras after Redmi Pro and Mi 5s Plus. The teaser also hinted at glass back with curved edges. Also, while the dual cameras on Mi 5s Plus and Redmi Pro were placed at the center, the Mi Note 2 may have the camera modules placed on the corner, just like the iPhone 7 Plus.

Coming to the functionality of dual camera setup, the Redmi Pro uses one sensor to capture photos, whereas the other sensor is used for capturing depth information. This enables users to add DSLR-like bokeh effects to the photos. The Mi 5s Plus, on the other hand, has two 13-megapixel sensors an RGB color sensor whereas the other is a monochrome sensor. It uses Qualcomm s latest ClearSight technology for capturing richer details while reducing overall noise. The same type of setup and functionality can also be expected from Mi Note 2 s rear cameras.
