Xiaomi Mi Note Pro finally goes on sale (in China), Mi 4i launches outside of India
Unveiled by Xiaomi in January, at the same time with the Mi Note, the Mi Note Pro is only now being released - four months after its official announcement. As of today, May 12, the handset can be bought in China, Xiaomi's home country, for prices starting at 2999 CNY (around $480). Prior to this, the device was available to pre-order online.

The Mi Note Pro is Xiaomi's most advanced smartphone to date, rivaling high-end devices like Samsung's Galaxy Note 4. While it looks just like the Mi Note, the Mi Note Pro offers better specs, including a 5.7-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, and 4 GB of RAM.

As you can see in the photos included below, there were huge lines formed outside some of Xiaomi's stores for the launch of the Mi Note Pro (similar to the lines formed when Apple is releasing new iPhones).


While the Mi Note Pro won't be sold outside of China, Xiaomi has another new Android smartphone that's ready to be released in various markets: the Mi 4i. Announced last month in India, the Xiaomi Mi 4i is launching this week in Taiwan (for around $212). The Mi 4i is an impressive handset for its price point, featuring a 5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, and a 3120 mAh battery. It's still not clear if the Xiaomi Mi 4i will be available in non-Asian markets. But we'll let you know when we find out.
