Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is phone in a class of its own. Packing some serious performance, along with a large battery and a 5.5 inch IPS screen, this smartphone is a budget performer that beats almost anything out there within its affordable $264 price range. What you get for your money is 16 GB of internal storage, a full-HD display, 2 GB of RAM, as well as two cameras. The latter include the rear-facing 13 megapixel shooter, as well as the 5 megapixel front-facing one.
On the inside, Redmi Note 2 comes equipped with a MIUI 6, Xiaomi's highly regarded and well designed Android interpretation that could be best described as reminiscent of an iPhone's proprietary iOS. It is reported though, that customers will get a much anticipated upgrade to MIUI 7 later this year. While prolonged periods of gaming do tend to result in the phone producing more heat, it by no means hinders the handset's incredible performance. The latter can be fully attributed to an octa-core 64-bit MediaTek Helio X10 2GHz processor. Power users will also be delighted to know that the Redmi Note 2 comes equipped with a removable 3,060 mAh battery, as well as 4G LTE connectivity and a micro-SD memory expansion slot.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 was released to the Chinese market on the 16th of August. The launch in Asia is expected to take place a few months later. This highly popular phone is in limited supply right now. You can track the Redmi Note 2 Australian availability on our store.
