Other tech specs are the same with 2GB RAM, 16/32GB storage, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and 3020 mAh battery. The rumoured fingerprint scanner is not on this Redmi Note 2 but it could appear on another upcoming Xiaomi device soon. As it is, there are no Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet.

Pictures of what appear to be two new smartphones from Xiaomi have surfaced. This includes what appears to be the metallic backside of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 complete with dual tone LED flash and a fingerprint scanner. The other leaked picture shows a smartphone with dual rear cameras somewhat like the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. This still unnamed dual camera smartphone has dual LED flash and a rather glossy backplate with what appears to be a metal frame. As always with such leaks and rumours do take these pics with a good pinch of salt as Xiaomi have not hinted at any dual camera setup at all. In any case, there are no Malaysia release dates or pricing details but we could see these two new Xiaomi smartphone in the next few months. Stay tuned for more developments.
