Of course, since both the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro are high-end devices, they won't be as cheap as other Xiaomi handsets. Even so, according to Focus Taiwan (which quotes consulting firm KGI Investment Advisory), Xiaomi could ship 13 to 15 million Mi Notes this year - which would be impressive, considering the fact that, at the moment, Xiaomi is far from being a global company. It's not clear if both Mi Note models are included in this estimation.
As you may know, the Mi Note is a pretty normal high-end handset, offering features like a 5.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal memory. The Mi Pro, on the other hand, is truly a beast, coming with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal memory by default.
While the Mi Note will be available starting this month (in China), the Mi Note Pro is expected to go on sale in March. The regular Mi Note should have prices starting at less than $400, while the Pro variant will cost about $530.
