Xiaomi was expected to launch a Xiaomi Mi Note 2 with 6GB of RAM, a Snapdragon 800 series SoC, and a 4000mAh battery on Tuesday. Speculation had pointed to the launch of the Mi 6 Plus Variant Launched, however, Xiaomi had something else up its sleeve. The company on Tuesday instead launched a new variant of the Mi Note 2, sporting 6GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage, putting all rumours to rest.

To recall, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 had been launched in October last year, with dual-edged curved glass on both the front and back. The smartphone was launched in three variants: a 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage model, a 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model, and a Global Edition 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model with support for global LTE brands. The newest variant completes the lineup, adding a 6GB/ 64GB storage model – offering users who are interested in 6GB of RAM but willing to settle for less storage at a lower price point. The smartphone is already available to buy in China, and will only be offered in a Black colour variant for now.

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 price

The new Xiaomi Mi Note 2 variant with 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage has been priced at CNY 2,899 (roughly Rs. 27,500). As we mentioned, this falls right in between the other models, and will be very attractive those wanting a 6GB RAM variant for less. The 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage model is priced at CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 26,600), a 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model is priced at CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 31,300), and the Global Edition 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model priced at CNY 3,499 (roughly Rs. 33,200).
