Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi, which is yet to release the high-end Mi5 smartphone, is now rumoured to be launching an Edge handset. This device is said to feature a curved display similar to the recent Samsung Galaxy Note Edge.

According to a MyDriver China (translated) report, Xiaomi's curved display smartphone would be termed Xiaomi Mi Edge. This smartphone is rumoured to feature a similar outer form factor as that of the current Redmi Note.

MyDriver also hints that this smartphone will feature a dual-curved display, having pixel densities of 565ppi, which is said to be similar to Samsung's curved-edge screen. The former is said to feature a 5.2in 2K display. Other rumoured technical specs of the handset include:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC
  • 3/4GB RAM
  • Fingerprint scanner incorporated

The purported Xiaomi Mi Edge is said to be priced at 2,500 yuan ($392, £254). Alongside the rumoured curved-display smartphone, Xiaomi is also rumoured to launch an exclusively-branded tablet and a smartwatch, during October.
