Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is a most talked about budget phablet. The Redmi Note 2 is mainly known for its processor which is Helio X10. Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is now available for preorder on gearbest for just $168. Lets have a look.
The Redmi Note 2 was launched just a month ago by Xiaomi in china. Since then there has been unavailability of the device because of the flash sales Xiaomi did. Now Gearbest is selling the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 Standard Edition for just $168.85.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 comes with a 5.5″ full HD display with a ppi of around 401. The display has Corning Gorilla glass protection which assures the protection against any scratches you might get. As said above, the Redmi Note 2 has a Helio X10 octa core processor. Helio x10 is known for its high class performance and is seen in many flagships like HTC m9+. It has a PowerVR G6200 GPU which is a cherry on top.
On the Camera side, the phone has a 13MP f/2.2camera module on the rear, and a 5MP f/2.0 sensor on the front; the back camera can do phase-detection AF, which is faster than regular focus. There are very few devices on the market which can do this right now. The front camera has a sensor with large 1.4um pixels which means that it should perform better in low light.
Another delightful feature that made the Note 2 is the addition of an IR blaster. Xiaomi only adds this feature to it’s flagships. It’s a surprising decision on Xiaomi’s end, but it’s a welcome one. When you look at the phone, it resembles the Mi 4i in a lot of ways, from the design, material to the in-hand feel. The Redmi Note 2 has 2GB LPDDR3 RAM, a removable 3,060mAh battery, dual micro-SIM slots, and available with 16GB or 32GB internal memory, with a micro-SD slot.
Redmi Note 2, ships with the latest MIUI 7 based on Android Lollipop, which has improved battery management, snappy response, a new Kid mode and face recognition. MIUI has a lot of features like a dedicated themes store to change every thing on the phone, right from the icons to the lockscreen without root; and you can mix and match different themes. The Normal variant supports 4G frequency upto 2600MHz which can run all the Indian as well as western Networks.
The phone is available on Gearbest for preorder at just $168. I would say that this deal should not be missed.
