Nearly two weeks after first getting wind of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, rumor mills have started churning out speculation about it again. This time around, a new report suggests that the handset will be equipped with the as-yet unreleased Snapdragon 823 processor and even sport 3D Touch.

To recall, the last set of rumors regarding the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 had claimed that the device is going for a Samsung-produced dual-curved AMOLED display. A Weibo user has now revealed that the screen will measure 5.7-inch, feature a 2K resolution and 3D Touch technology. The leakster also claims that there will be more than one variant of the phone for sale.

One version of the Mi Note 2 is set to pack a Snapdragon 820 SoC, while another will carry a Snapdragon 823 CPU. The latter notably hasn’t been made official yet, although a Chinese analyst did make note of it some time ago, claiming it would provide higher clock speeds within the same baseband as its sibling.

Other specs being thrown around are a 32GB, 64GB or a whopping 256GB of ROM and 4GB or 6GB of RAM. There’s also a chance a 3600mAh battery might way its way inside the Xiaomi handset, complete with 18W Quick Charging abilities. The cherry on top is a 16MP rear camera blessed with a Sony IMX295 sensor and OIS, in addition to a 5MP selfie snapper.

As for its cost, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is apparently priced at 2999 Yuan (approx $460 or Rs 31000). As always, keep in mind that these rumors should be taken with a pinch of salt. Stay tuned for more on the handset as and when more details spring forward.
