Xiaomi launched its impressive Redmi Note 2 last week, with a price tag of just $125 in China it is a genuine bargain. However, we expected that affordability would change when the well spec'd handset made its way to other global regions. And so it is, as Xiaomi has revealed the Redmi Note 2 is going global (sort of) and will actually be more expensive. Don't worry though as the device is still something of a bargain.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 (32GB for Note 2 Prime), micro SD card support, a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel selfie lens. Chinese online retailers are now selling the Redmi Note 2 with global shipping, with the 16GB version costing the same as $168.85, while the 32GB Redmi Note 2 Prime costs $205.85. That's at least 35% over Xiaomi's asking price, but yet that is still a very affordable price considering the specs on offer.
