Xiaomi launches ‘phablet phone’ with 5.7-inch, flexible OLED display

Darn. Now my 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus looks so small. Xiaomi has launched the Mi Note 2, a “phablet phone” with a 5.7-inch, flexible OLED display that sits under a panel of wraparound glass and curves around the sides of the handset. 

It’s obviously designed to fill the void left by Samsung’s discontinued Galaxy Note 7. The Mi Note 2 sports a 22.56-megapixel camera on the back, an 8-megapixel camera on the front, and up to 6GB of RAM.

The phone starts at 2799 yuan (approximately $413) for a 4GB model with 64 GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. A 3499 yuan ($516) model sports 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM.
