Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro handsets were launched on January 15 at the company's event in Beijing. These are Xiaomi's newest flagship devices and it seems like they managed to get the consumer attention, which was to be expected. Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is still not available for reservations in China, but the Mi Note on the other hand, is. According to a report from China, the Mi Note handset has been pre-ordered like crazy and it will be interesting to see if the company can deliver those numbers in time. It will also be interesting to see how many devices will get reserved by the time this thing is available on sale on January 27, which is next Tuesday. Anyhow, if you live in China and are interested in getting the Mi Note, follow this link and make sure you reserve a copy before the handset goes on sale.
The Mi Note features a 5.7-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS LCD display along with 3GB of RAM and 16 or 64GB of internal storage. This handset is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 quad-core SoC and it ships with an Adreno 330 GPU for graphics rendering. 13-megapixel camera (Sony's IMX214 BSI sensor) is located at the back of this device along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash, and a 4-megapixel (2um pixel size) camera is available up front. 3,000mAh battery ships with this device, and you also get dual standby 4G LTE connectivity, which is always a great thing. The Mi Note measures 155.1 x 77.6 x 7mm and it weighs 161 grams. The 16GB version of this phone costs only 2,299 Yuan ($371), while the 64GB version will set you back 2,799 Yuan ($451) should you choose to buy it.
Xiaomi did not reveal how many Mi Note devices will be available on January 27, but I do believe that many people won't be able to get a copy next Tuesday, that's how these sales usually go, the company is just unable to produce as many handsets. Xiaomi did, however, promise that they'll offer as much as possible and will do their best to re-stock as soon as possible. Did anyone register yet?
