Xiaomi Mi Note gets an AnTuTu treatment – results are good, but not shocking
So, yesterday, Xiaomi announced two good-looking, promising handsets, at its own signature aggressive price points – the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro (not to be confused with the company's Redmi Note midranger). Apparently, somebody managed to get his hands on the non-Pro variant of the phone and launch a quick AnTuTu test.
So, the results? Quite normal, we'd say – the Snapdragon 801-equipped Mi Note hangs just above the OnePlus One and drags a step behind the Galaxy Note 4, which is to be expected. All in all, if this benchmark shows anything, it's that Xiaomi managed to optimize the CPU humming in the Mi Note to run as well as we've been traned to expect from other flagships out there.
The Xiaomi Mi Note will start shipping on the 27th of January and will come in two variants – one with 16 GB storage (costing around $370) and one with 64 GB (priced at about $450). Its bigger, more pumped-out sibling will hang back until some time in March, since Qualcomm is yet to start churning out enough Snapdragon 810 units to support the massive smartphone production that's about to boot up.
