Higher-end Xiaomi Mi Note for pre-order next month

An executive from Xiaomi discloses the pre-order date for the Mi Note that sports higher-end specs than the previously-launched variant. It will be up for reservation early next month.


Top-end Xiaomi Mi Note specs:
5.7-inch QHD display @ 2560 x 1440 resolution
64-bit Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor
64GB internal storage
13MP rear camera with OIS
Ultrapixel front camera
Hi-Fi audio chip
Dual-SIM/dual standby
Cat.9 4G LTE


(Compare its specs against the previously-released Mi Note here)

Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, announces on his Weibo account that the top-end version of the Mi Note will be up for pre-order this May 6, 2015. It will have a CNY3299 price tag (approx. Php23K) which is a bit steep for a Xiaomi product, but taking a look at the internals that it would be carrying might be able to justify it.

In addition to those beefy specs, the upcoming Mi Note will be clad in metal with glass for its form factor.

    I am sure the zenfone 2 (4GB ver) will not reach this very high price. Xioami is so last year.

      LOL, last year? eh ang zenfone 2 ay atom ang chipset. performance nyan wala pa sa kaya ng redmi 1s. dami pa hindi compatible na malulupit na games. zenfone 2 are sooo last year compare mo sa xiaomi products.

    • Easy E says:

      Spec wise, hands down ako sa Xioami vs Zenfone2. Ang sinasabi ko ay yung brand awareness at yung pagoffer nila ng talagang mura for its (relatively) high specs. Mas mabango ngayun sa consumers ang Asus, Meizu at Alcatel. Last year, Xiaomi ang mabango.

      High-end specs nga, kaso ang problema sa Xiaomi, di sila nagrerelease agad ng kernel sources so stuck ka sa MIUI. Buti na lang may nirelease na AOSP ROM for Mi3

    @mongodroid Maling mali kana man e. Zenfone 2 wala pa sa kaya ng redmi 1s kamo? Naku naman. Dahan dahan lang sa pagtatanggol mo sa xiaomi. Di ko rin alam bat mo nasabi na “Zenfone 2 are so last year compare sa xiaomi products”.

    Do you have a review for the Mi Note? Saw a bamboo shell version being sold at Lazada, P24,882.
