There has been hardly any innovation in terms the overall looks of smartphones. We do time to time see some brands coming out with like the curved screen from Samsung S7 Edge or random sightings of a Sharp Corner R. LG came up with devices like LG V10 or V20 but overall no such innovation has happened in the budget or mid-budget segment. However, things may now change very soon with Mi Note 2 which seems to have drawn inspiration from the Sharp Aquos Crystal that came almost 2 years back.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had recently admitted that Mi Note 2 exists and since then there have a been a lot of rumors and leaks about the said device. However, today we got Mi Note 2’s real life images which show a smartphone without any bezel on the front side of the device.
Although the said device looks amazing and if it comes out in the market it would be one of the unique smartphones that may be available to masses. However, there a high probability that this may not be the actual device due to the lack of front facing camera.
We also came across a video that showed a device with a flexible display running Xiaomi’s latest OS MIUI 8 being operated by a user. Whatever may be the case both these leaks have raised the expectations from Mi Note 2 several notches higher. What are your thoughts about such an innovative design on a smartphone ?
