Xiaomi Redmi Note scores high on AnTuTu for a $161 phablet

Xiaomi Redmi Note scores high on AnTuTu for a $161 phablet
Earlier Monday, we told you that Xiaomi had unveiled the Xiaomi Redmi Note. This is a phablet with a 5.5 inch screen offering a 720 x 1280 resolution display, and a true octa-core MT6592 processor from MediaTek. The amazing thing about this device is the price, which is expected to be 999 Yuan ($161 USD). The phone will initially be available in China only, starting on Wednesday.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note has also made a trip through the AnTuTu benchmark test, which confirmed many of the phablet's specs including the use of the MT6592 CPU. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 13MP with a 5MP front-facing snapper. 1GB of RAM is on board with 8GB of native storage and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

And the super affordable phablet also produced a rather favorable score of 28,091 on AnTuTu. No, it isn't the highest score ever seen on the site, but it certainly is the highest score produced by a device priced at $161 USD.

Thanks for the tip!

Its almost impossible to actually buy the phone in the stated price. Recently, they state 5000 pieces to go for $169 at 12 noon. I login at 11:58pm, keep refreshing the screen so that the button goes from 'coming soon' to 'loading' to 'Buy Now'. I click 'Buy Now' immediately and took less than a minute to fill up my purchases. Finally when I press 'Order'. The site report 'out of stock' Tell me anyone can believe that 5000 piece can go out of stock in less than a minute. An hour later Xiaomi advertise in their Facebook that it went out of stock in 8 minute time. This rake of Chinese business practice of creating Hype! to put competitors down but if you really want to own one than you will know that its impossible to buy in the stated price. Most are available at a higher cost of $230 instead of the $169 that Xiaomi state. Personally, I find it stupid to creating demand and has no supply at to take advantage of it.

and just like most chinese made phones, this will be re-branded when exported to other countries and has double the price or more... budget non-chinese = google/motorola is your best option budget asia-pacific = china-re-brand or china brand (alcatel, lenovo, huawei etc) me = hoping asus brings zenfone 6 here at the promised SRP of $199, it beats the branded ones on price/performance (t2 ultra $430, s930 $335, mega 5.8/6.3 $340/$450, grand2 $360,note2 $470) on the phablet sector.
