Usually pictures of phones leaking  onto Weibo also have specs or a name attached to the post. Not so this time, which caused magazines to write about an yet unkown new Xiaomi phone. Still, we think, the pictures do indeed show the Mi Note 2, even though it might be a prototype unit and not the final design. The lack of a dual-lens unit on the back could mean, that this is the smaller of the two planned versions.  Previous rumors said that only one version could be equipped with a dual-lens camera, similar to what Xiaomi did with the Mi 5s and the Mi 5s Plus.

The design is typical Xiaomi, even though the edges are more rounded than usual. The fact that there does not seem to be a curved "edge" design does not necessarily mean that the final version won't either. Early prototypes of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also came in a standard flat design to prevent the final look to leak to the public. Xiaomi is said to officially unveil the Mi Note 2 sometime in November this year.
