    • Hi, Even we have been waiting to get our hands-on on this beast. It has been almost 1.5 years of wait now. Its gonna get launched on 24th January, 2016….Regarding bootloader, we think that’s a right move by Xiaomi to protect integrity of MIUI and protect from theft just like iPhones. But you can also unlock the bootloader’s by checking out the forum of MIUI…. and yes looks like edged screen, wish for Amoled display 🙂 Do share your views on Redmi Note 2 Prime 🙂
