Xiaomi’s VP Hugo Barra has confirmed that the new smartphone will not be released in India. The power-packed smartphone is doing pretty well in China. It is the best alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 right now. For international customers, GearBest is coming up with an alternative too.

The online international reseller has listed three variants of the Mi Note 2 as a part of the pre-sale, which started on October 29 and ends on December 15. However, the shipping is expected to take a month. The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is priced at $509.99 (Rs. 34,000) for the 4GB RAM / 64GB storage variant, while the 6GB RAM / 128GB storage variant is listed at $597.99 (Rs. 39,800).

In China, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 is priced at CNY 2799 [approx. Rs. 27,800] for the 4GB RAM/64GB storage variant. While the 6GB RAM/128GB Storage variant costs CNY 3299 [approx. Rs. 32,600]. A 6GB RAM/128Gb Storage variant with Global LTE support is priced at CNY 3499 [approx. Rs. 34,600].

The phone listed on GearBest is available at a higher price compared to the Chinese pricing, but still, it doesn’t sound like a bad deal in this scenario.

Apart from the Gearbest, the Mi Note 2 is also available on Everbuying, however, it does cost a little more compared to Gearbest. Priced at $681.39 for 6GB RAM version, the phone can be considered if you cannot manage it from Gearbest.

The Xiaomi Mi Note 2 comes with a dual-edge curve design. It sports a 5.7-inch display with 2K resolution. It is powered by a 2.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor and runs Android Marshmallow OS-based MIUI 8. The powerful smartphone sports a 22.56MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera. It supports all six types of 4G LTE networks and all the bands across the globe. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the device. It is backed by a 4,070mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
