Xiaomi Mi Note 2

The Xiaomi Mi Note 2’s expected unveiling is only a few days away on October 25, but that hasn’t stopped a huge new leak from revealing a number of key details about the upcoming handset. The phone has been the recipient of a number of contrasting rumors over the past few days.

The latest one arrives courtesy a Weibo user who got their hands on presentation slides for the Mi Note 2. As per the slides, the device will be getting a dual-camera system on its back after all. The module might be composed of a 23MP Sony IMX318 lens and a 12MP Sony IMX378 one.

The rear shooters may also be equipped with abilities like OIS, 4K video recording skills, and dual-tone LED flash. Xiaomi is apparently going to introduce an iris scanner to the 8MP front-facing snapper, a first for the brand. Another major feature which could be making its debut is Force Touch.
