Xiaomi is releasing an all-metal Xiaomi Mi Note 2 according to Chinese tipster known on Weibo as @Leaksfly. It comes with specs that aren’t even on the market yet: 4GB RAM and the possible use of Qualcomm’s yet-to-be-released system on chip, the Snapdragon 820. The leaked phablet promises to be a premium beauty, with the processing chops to boot.

While Xiaomi is more famous for creating budget to mid-priced phones with great specs, this seems to be one of its attempts to create a premium unit, with premium specs, though with a yet-undisclosed price. Should Xiaomi price the Mi Note 2 at an obscenely affordable range, then this could be a veritable hit in the market.

Here are the rumoured specs for the Xiaomi Mi Note 2:

Processor/Chipset: Speculations say that the phones could be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, potentially up to 2.2 GHz in speed, OR a MediaTek MT6797 Helio X20 Deca-Core chipset with speeds at 2.5 GHz at the most powerful cores.

RAM: 4GB

GPU: Possibly Adreno 530 GPU

OS: Possibly Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Internal Storage: 32GB

Connectivity: 3G, LTE, WiFi

Expandable Storage:

Display: 5.7-inch quad-HD display, with a maximum resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and 515 ppi in pixel density

Cameras: Primary: 16MP; Secondary: Yes, though no info yet on its resolution.

Goodies: Full-metal body, fingerprint sensor

The Xiaomi Mi Note 2, according to leaked images, certainly looks elegant and could give the iPhone a run for its money. However, if the company will price the device at premium rates, this could be a deal-breaker for Xiaomi’s established market. Xiaomi has heavily marketed to budget-conscious consumers who opt for mid to low-priced devices. These are the users who choose not to purchase flagship devices, which are usually priced at over US$600. However, since the first-generation Xiaomi Mi Note is priced at around US$340 to US$370, it’s safe to estimate that the Mi Note 2 may stick to the $300 to $450 range.

With these powerful specs, the full-metal chassis, and the hopefully reasonable price, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 promises to be a runaway hit.
