Xiaomi Reveals New Flagships: Mi Note and Mi Note Pro

Xiaomi was recently unveiled as the world’s fastest growing smartphone manufacturer, and the fourth-biggest in terms of sales, so it comes as no surprise that the company would want to consolidate and strengthen its position.

Today, the Chinese-based tech giant announced two new flagship devices – the Mi Note and the Mi Note Pro. Initial analyses suggest that these are aimed to directly compete with the rising popularity of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in China and other markets where Xiaomi has a foothold.

Xiaomi Mi Note:

Both phones feature some mind-blowing specifications. The Mi Note has a 5.7 inch, 1080p display, with 3 GB RAM, Snapdragon 801 processor as well as a 13 megapixel camera. It is also aesthetically pleasing, with curved glass on both front and back panels. It is expected to retail for approximately $370.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro:

The Mi Note Pro is an upgraded version of the same device. Whilst it is also 5.7 inches in size, the display resolution has been upgraded to 2K with 515 pixels per inch density. Furthermore, it has 4 GB RAM, a Snapdragon 810 64-bit processor as well as LTE category-9 connectivity. Xiaomi calls the Mi Note Pro “literally the best smartphone to date.”

    • mohsinraja

    • khan

    • Guest

      There is a thing called “knowledge”.

      • Azi

        lol perfectly said

      • zafar

        Durex has introduced android based vibrating Penty. Would you like to read an article on that here just for the sake of knowledge as it is never going to be OFFICIALLY available in Pakistan :P

  • Shan Ali

    Cant Understand this
    For Mi Note:

    1080 x 1920 pixels: 5.7 inches (~386 ppi pixel density)
    for MI Note pro:

    1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.7 inches (~515 ppi pixel density)
    Why pixel density shoots up to ~515 ppi?

    • sonic_rm

      Its a typo, Note pro has a resolution of 1440 x 2560 hence the 515 ppi

      • Haris

        Bcz Note Pro Has 2k Display !*

  • Abid Hussain

    3.5Ghz 8 core processor and 4GB DDR4 RAM .. talk about POWEERRRRR!!

  • DJ

    Xiaomi should be launched in Pakistan as well as their pricing is perfect compared to product they are offering at least will be far batter than Oppo.

    • Moeed Bin Awais

      bhai yahan koi oppo laine ko tayar nai ha aur Xiaomi ne aa k amb karna ha.

      • DJ

        Qmobile Per log hazaroo kharch karnye ko tayyar hai why not on Xiaomi only reason people not buying Oppo is they are over priced , their brand value compared to other brands is very low.

  • For God Sake some one please explain how many extra bucks it cost to them to put an SD card slot in the phone?? Is there any other reason of doing so?

    • Well for 64 GB version you probably don’t need it but for 16 GB there should be one!

  • Eli Ehsan

    going by the pictures! its not Mi that or Mi this.. rather “Main bhi iPhone” & “May-be iPhone” :D

  • Mohsan Hassan

    What is the reason to post this brand if not available in Pakistan?
