Xiaomi announced its latest smartphone today, the mid-range Redmi Note 2, a device that comes with very appealing specs and a typically affordable price from the Chinese company. Before tackling the details, it seems this $125 ($155 for the 32GB version) handset will only serve to cement Xiaomi's position as the number one smartphone brand in China.For that price you get an awful lot of smartphone and some very appealing specs, making the Redmi Note 2 look exciting even next to handsets such as Motorola?s recently launched 2015 Moto G. Of course, it is important to know the Moto G will be available just about everywhere, while the Redmi Note 2 will only be available in select Asian markets, including China and India. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch display with 1080p Full HD resolution, an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 (a flagship chip) clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, a massive 3000 mAh battery, 16GB and 32GB storage options, micro SD card support, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel selfie lens. As this is Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 2 comes in a variety of funky colors (good old black and white among them) and is so well spec?d that we can only imagine the company is losing money on this product.
