Xiaomi enjoyed great success last year, and the company wants to do even better in 2015. They have already announced a slew of devices this year, and it’s only January. The company has announced three new smartphones, among other gadgets, Redmi 2 was launched on January 4, and Mi Note and Mi Note Pro handsets were unveiled on January 15. The latter two devices are at the same time Xiaomi’s new flagship handsets, and the Mi Note is currently available for reservations in China, will be on sale on January 27. The Mi Note Pro will be available for sale in a month or two, the company didn’t share any information as far as that handset is concerned.
Both of these handsets are listed on Oppomart, have been for quite some time now, but are not available for purchase. Well, those of you who want to get your hands on the Mi Note and live outside of China, are in luck. Xiaomi Mi Note is now available at Spemall, a reseller which ships all over the world. If you’re interested in getting the device, the 16GB model will cost you $455.99, while the 32GB model will set you back $535.99. As a reminder, the 16GB model costs $371 in China, and the 64GB model is priced at $451 in that Asia country. It was to be expected that the device will be more expensive via reseller, though I’d argue this is still a very good deal for this handset. I’m not sure if the reseller ships the handset right away, but I doubt it, they might wait until it’s officially available in China until they ship it your way.
The Xiaomi 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 thing is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor along with an Adreno 330 GPU for graphics processing. 13-megapixel camera is located on the back of this handset (Sony’s IMX214 BSI sensor) and does come with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), and a 4-megapixel (2um pixel size) camera is available up front. 3,000mAh battery ships with this device and we’re talking about a dual-SIM, dual standby device here which also supports 4G LTE connectivity and comes with international bands (most of them, check before you purchase).
