It has been a year and a half since Xiaomi announced its high-end phablet, the Mi Note, and it is now being rumoured that the Chinese smartphone company will announce its successor soon. A new leak on Chinese social media website Weibo has revealed some possible specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2.

According to the leak, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 would come in two variants: one with a 5.7-inch 1080p display and the other with a 5.7-inch QHD display with ‘3D Touch’ features. Other possible specifications include dual 12-megapixel cameras on the back with 4K video recording, a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, and a 4000 mAh battery with fast charging support. Similar to the Xiaomi Mi 5, they are expected to feature 16-megapixel cameras with OIS and 4K video recording and 4-megapixel UltraPixel secondary cameras.

The Mi Note 2 is expected to be released in three variants: 4GB RAM with 32GB storage (for $375), 6GB RAM with 64GB storage (for $450), and 6GB RAM with 128GB storage (for $525). Both smartphones would most probably be powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor with Adreno 530. It would compete with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus.
