Xiaomi Redmi Note name confirmed, official image shows up
Called Xiaomi Redmi Note, the new device reportedly features a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels and a “true octa-core” processor made by MediaTek.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note may cost as low as $162 (999 CNY). It looks like the handset will be available to purchase starting March 19 - only in China (at least for the beginning). Xiaomi will probably sell millions of these, further establishing itself as one of the new stars of the Chinese smartphone market.

And I thought the prices of phablets couldn't get any lower. Time to get one

One of the biggest problem for Mediatek-powered smartphones and tablets is most of them are stuck in 4.2.2(4.1.2 or 4.0.4 for older SoCs) without any future version update.

I totally agree with u. But on the other hand there wasnt any real visible changes in android 4.3 and 4.4. Mostly under the hood. So practically it shouldnt make that much of a big diff although theoretically phones should have the latest OS.
