Xiaomi Mi MIX and Mi Note 2 get previewed on video ahead of release

Xiaomi surprised the whole world with today's announcement. The Mi Mix is one of those devices that you can't wait to get your hands on, but the Mi Note 2 isn't bad either.

Both smartphones have been introduced earlier today and will go on sale next month for various prices ranging from $413 to $590. However, while Xiaomi confirmed an international version of the Mi Note 2, it didn't say anything about a similar variant of the Mi Mix.

The good news is, you'll most certainly be able to get the Xiaomi Mi Mix next month via Chinese authorized retailers, though you will have to pay for import fees, which will bump up the final price of the phablet.

On paper, the two Xiaomi smartphones may seem “unreal” for the price you pay, but the Chinese company is likely to sell the Mi Note 2 and Mi Mix by the millions even from the first days of their availability.

If you don't mind owning a Chinese smartphone and you're still on the fence on whether to buy the Mi Note 2 or Mi Mix, you'll be happy to know that Xiaomi's VP, Hugo Barra previewed both devices right after their announcement.

Xiaomi's official talked almost a full hour about the company's new Android phones, so you'll probably get all your questions answered by simply watching the video below.

Hugo Barra was live streaming on Facebook his hands-on experience with the Mi Max and Mi Note 2, which shows how confident the company is about its new products. Check out the video below and tell us what you think about Xiaomi's new smartphones.

Nice presentation. If one didn't know that Sharp has done this already years ago with Aquos, one could really think that Xiaomi was innovative and came up with all of this itself. In reality though, Xiaomi just copied something that someone else has innovated before.

Pretty much every 'innovation' has been done by other companies than most people think they are from, but ultimately it is more about execution than making a first version. Literally every function or design part could have another inventor, so what. In this case Sharp has made those kind of screens sure, but i would rather have this than any Aquos. Also touchscreens, fingerprint scanners, etc. have been copied by someone at some point, and now they're the norm and nobody complains anymore.

I usually think 1080 is perfect resolution but on 6.4 screen could be pixilated especially if pentile. Other than that, sweet looking phone!

the hell with the philip stack, i'm sure everyone here on phonearena thought about a bezeless phone for long time. the tech just wasn't there. china needs stop their obsession with western designers who know little to nothing about the technology and give credit to real engineers

I don't understand how that whole thing with Lenovo, Huawei & Xiaomi pre-installing malware last year never became a bigger deal.

That was mostly in China if I'm correct. So no one really cared.

That's because Lenovo, Huawei, and Xiaomi didn't pre-install the malware, it came from third-party sellers that unlocked the devices and installed it and then sold it. "And it doesn't appear the infection is occurring during manufacturing. "Somebody is unlocking the phone and putting the malware on there and relocking the phone," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data. Many of the suspect phones are sold in Asia and Europe through third parties or middleman and aren't coming directly from the manufacturers, Hayter said." http://www.pcworld.com/article/2978120/apps/bought-a-brand-new-phone-it-could-still-have-malware.html

This guy is a shame to America....!! Why can't he help America with his knowledge?? Money money money money. He makes Chinese rip offs of fine Samsung products and criticize Google at the same time AND sells those Chinese phones to Americans and make money for them. Can America afford this kind of setup anymore????????????????? My opinion

You are not allowed to work outside of America if you are American? So the millions of scientists that America lure in since its existence are shame to their countries? Obviously he saw something good in Xiaomi and kudos to him. You remind me of a typical Trump supporter. Sad day for Murica when people like you even exist.
