While calling Xiaomi’s recently unveiled Mi 5s and Mi 5s Plus disappointing would be a bit of an exaggeration, the two Android high-enders are certainly confusing.

Just one version of the smaller model sports a 3D Touch display, the Mi 5s also carries an “under-glass” fingerprint scanner in both 3 and 4GB RAM configurations, whereas the Plus can go all the way up to 6 gigs of memory, doubling down on rear cam lenses as well.

But if you wait a few more days, you may get all the above, alongside 2K screen resolution and an iris reader, with the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. Don’t believe us? A whole batch of elaborate, legit-looking presentation images make a very strong case for the existence and imminence of such a game-changing, all-purpose mobile powerhouse, one that could cost as little as 3,000 Yuan ($445), all stops pulled out.


Excuse us as we keep our skeptical hats on, at least as far as pricing is concerned, since selling a Quad HD 5.7-incher with Snapdragon 821 processing muscle, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, dual 23 + 12MP rear cameras (!!!), 8MP selfie shooter, 3D Touch tricks, under-glass ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, iris scanner, 4,100mAh battery, NFC, and USB 3.0 Type-C at less than $450 sounds like pure madness.

Where would we even go from there? Oh, and keep in mind that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is also rumored to come with dual curves and no bezels, which today’s exposé doesn’t corroborate… or disprove. Pure… madness!!!
