As opposed to Samsung, Xiaomi chooses another way to express their attraction
In contrary to Samsung, the Chinese maker chose another segment to attack and obviously, they are doing it in the right way. Yesterday, at the same Samsung released their two flagships: S6 Edge Plus and Note 5, Xiaomi also introduced Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 with the unbelievable price of $125. It is not to say, of course, that the specs inside will be similar to its cost. NO! the truth is that you can’t believe in it when I say it contains a Full HD screen, and MediaTek’s top-end Helio X10 system chip inside.
I should by highlighting the specs of the Redmi Note 2 including a 5.5-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, the Helio X10 with 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel main camera (with phase detection auto-focus), a 5-megapixel selfie cam, and a 3,060 mAh battery, all in a colorful plastic body measuring 0.324″ (8.25mm) in thickness. You can buy the base 16GB model, or the slightly more expensive 32 gig version of the Redmi Note 2.
It is also spotted that The new 5.5-inch Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 comes with a disruptively low price (MSRP) of around $125 (799 yuan), especially when you consider the fact that it is powered by the top-end MediaTek chip, the Helio X10. Yes, that’s the same chip in the nearly two times more expensive Meizu MX5, and yes, it’s the same chip that powers the HTC One M9 Plus, a device that costs nearly $700 in some markets.
