Mi Note Plus could be Xiaomi's second Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone

Mi Note Plus could be Xiaomi's second Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone
Besides the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro, Xiaomi might soon release another new extra-large handset from the same series. Called Mi Note Plus, this alleged new smartphone was recently benchmarked at Geekbench, while an image of its display (seemingly confirming the Mi Note Plus name) showed up somewhere in China.

It looks like the Mi Note Plus features an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear camera, and a 1440 x 2560 pixels screen - just like the Mi Note Pro. Moreover, the handset runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, but there's no way of telling if it resembles the Mi Note Pro design-wise.

As you may know, both the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro are China-only devices. Earlier today, Xiaomi announced a Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition, but this, too, will be available only in China. So maybe Xiaomi intends to release the Mi Note Plus in other markets.

Since the Mi Note Pro costs around $530, the Mi Note Plus may have a similar price (of course, that's assuming that this handset will be launched somewhere at some point).

But...why?

Why is the right question. Why do they keep releasing devices when the previous ones are never in stock. Try first selling the previous before releasing new ones.

Just stop using 'Note' as a phablet name if it doesn't have a stylus.

It's not patented so they're banking on marketing words from Sammy and Apple because these add popularity to the device. And we all know where they got the idea if they release an Mi one, Mi compact and Mi Flex.

l said that just because the name is irrelevant, not because the naming patent.

Don't expect too much from Xiaomi. They don't have physical stores and they're still going to continue the hunger marketing system. I used to wait for their device but I got tired because of their VERY limited stocks.
