Xiaomi, the world's fourth largest phone maker, addressed both Apple and Samsung in one fell swoop with the announcement of the Mi Note and its Pro version a little while ago. Their design is pretty striking, as the 5.7" phablets sport an extremely thin 6.95mm body (thinner than both the Note 4, and even the iPhone 6 Plus), aluminum frame, and trimmed bezels for an all-around compact handset, relative to the hearty screen diagonal.
What's more, if you opt for the Pro version, you will get a Snapdragon 810 chipset and 4 GB of RAM, and it comes with the very generous 64 GB storage out of the box plus dual SIM support, too. When will these two beauties be available, and at what price?
Well, the Xiaomi Mi Note will be on preorder January 20th, and start shipping next Friday, January 27th, while the Note Pro is said to be slated for a March release, when the Snapdragon 810 production will typically ramp up. They will cost you the equivalent of 3300 yuan (about $532) for the decked up Note Pro, and the more modest 2299 yuan for the 16 GB Mi Note model (about $372), while $450 will get you the 64 GB Mi Note version.
