Xiaomi Mi 5s and Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro are two heavily-expected devices and both are gearing up for a gala release. Previous unconfirmed reports had suggested the Mi Note 2 Pro to have a 6GB RAM. However, new reports suggest that Xiaomi may release another variation with a mind-boggling 8GB RAM and a mega 256GB inter storage capacity.

While OnePlus 3 is the first top-rated phone to release a 6GB RAM and Samsung may also release a Galaxy Note 7 variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, it is interesting to see to what extent the mobile companies will take the RAM competition to just to have a greater pie of the profits. As per AndroidPure, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro specs have been revealed by an "About Phone" leaked screenshot that also has other details about the phone. Other specs apart from the 8GB RAM include a quad-core 2.6GHz CPU to power the handset. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 2.6 GHz Quad core processor may also be included.

According to The Bitbag, a Weibo report has revealed that the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Pro will run on Android 7.0 Nougat plus Xiaomi's MIUI 8. As far as the release date is concerned, Xiaomi may announce the device in a couple of months and release it after launching the Xiaomi Mi 5s on Sept. 27.

The authenticity of the leak is questionable though the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 has a 5.7-inch display that support 2K tech and 3D touch. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 4GB RAM for 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM for 128GB internal storage.

The Xiaomi Mi 5s is expected to boast a first-ever Qualcomm ultrasonic fingerprint scanner that will be placed under the screen. It is rumored to have a 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4-axis OIS and PDAF focusing. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more Xiaomi Mi Note 2 news and updates!
