Xiaomi Mi Note, Mi Note Pro Unveiled, "iPhone 6" Killer Starting at P16,599

The smartphone industry's fastest rising star, Xiaomi, unveiled the Xiaomi Mi Note and the higher specced Xiaomi Mi Note Pro at a huge launch at Beijing yesterday, and was led by Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun himself. These devices come hot off the heels of the previously announced Mi 4 and the Redmi 2.

The Mi Note and the Mi Note Pro, clearly chasing after the iPhone 6, both have great specifications to say the least, with attractive pricing to boot. The Mi Note starts with a 5.7-inch Full HD Sharp display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, dual 4G LTE, and HiFi audio support (Sabre ES9018K2M high-end DAC  lossless playback). The better Mi Note Pro on the other hand will feature a Quad HD display, the powerful 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, and LTE CAT 9 support.

Going further, the Mi Note will be just 6.95mm thick, and will sport Gorilla Glass 3 on its front and back sides (Xiaomi showed a clip with the device passing their steel ball drop test and free fall test). Camera-wise, the Mi Note features a 13-megapixel f/2.0 Sony module - and as Lei Jun have mentioned - is flushed to the Mi Note's body, unlike the iPhone 6's.

Direct conversion of the Mi Note pricing turns out to around P16,599 for the 16GB version and P20,199 for the 64 GB version (if ever this version will reach Philippine shores). The Mi Note Pro on the other hand should sell around P23,799

The Mi Note and the Mi Note Pro are said to be coming to international markets in Q2 2015.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun during the keynote also hinted that they may enter the smart home scene soon with the help of the Mi Home app on appliances and Mi smartphones.
