Xiaomi has announced the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro devices during their press conference on January 15. These are Xiaomi's new flagship devices, and the Mi Note went on sale in China today, was sold out in less than 3 minutes, and a new batch arrives February 3rd. I bet many of would like to know when will the Mi Note Pro be available, right? Latest reports have been saying that the phone will be available at the end of March, but according to our sources, the Mi Note Pro might go on sale at the beginning of March. This is not set in stone just yet, but it seems like Xiaomi plans to launch this thing as soon as possible and the beginning of March seems plausible, at least according to our source.
As far as international availability goes, you know that Xiaomi doesn't ship their devices internationally, but you can get them via various resellers, like Spemall for example, who have both of these devices listed already. Keep in mind that the Mi Note Pro won't and can't ship before March though, we'll let you know when it becomes available. The Mi Note, however, might ship soon from resellers should you choose to purchase a copy. The device will be somewhat more expensive than it would be in China, but I'd argue that it's worth it. Xiaomi did a great job building the Mi Note handsets and pricing them as low as possible, so even the reseller prices are not that bad considering what you get with these devices.
The Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phablets both sport a 5.7-inch display, 13-megapixel cameras with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), dual-LED, dual-tone flash and look basically the same on the outside. There are significant differences on the inside though, the Mi Note features a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, 3GB of RAM and is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 quad-core chip, while the Mi Note Pro sports a QuadHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and will be powered by the Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor. Are you interested in either of these handsets?
