Xiaomi started this year with a bang, this China-based smartphone vendor has announced a bunch of smart gadgets back in January. The company has announced the Redmi 2, Mi Note and Mi Note Pro devices, along with a bunch of smart gadgets and what not. Xiaomi Redmi 2 is the company’s mid-ranger handset, and a successor to the last year’s Redmi 1S. The Mi Note and Mi Note Pro are a completely different story though, these two handsets are the company’s newest flagship offerings. The Mi Note Pro is the top-of-the-line handset, and the Mi Note offers somewhat lower specs, but is still flagship material.

That being said, the Mi Note has been available in China for quite some time now. The Mi Note Pro, on the other hand still isn’t available, but the company is expected to offer that handset for sale soon as well.
