Xiaomi and Uber team up to sell and deliver Xiaomi Mi Note in Malaysia and Singapore
Xiaomi and Uber are teaming up in Malaysia and Singapore to offer consumers there, a quick and easy way to order and take delivery of the Xiaomi Mi Note. The handset can actually be purchased via the Uber app in the two countries, and charged to the credit card associated with a Uber account. This new program debuts on July 27th, and was announced by Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra via social media.
Once you order the phone, you will be able to track it as though you were following a Uber car that was coming to pick you up. Within hours after ordering the device, it will be in your hot little hands ready for you to set up.
Personal delivery of newly ordered phones is a service in its infancy. In the U.S., Sprint has built up a fleet of cars and drivers that will personally hand-deliver new smartphones that were ordered the same day. The drivers will also show consumers how to set up and use their new handset.
The Xiaomi Mi Note is equipped with a 5.7-inch LCD screen. This works out to a pixel density of 386ppi. Driving the phablet is a Snapdragon 801 chipset, which includes a quad-core 2.5GHz CPU and the Adreno 330 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of non-expandable memory. The rear-facing 13MP camera features OIS and an aperture of f/2.0. There is a 4MP front-facing camera ready to snap selfies and handle video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with MIUI running on top.
If this works out, perhaps we will see more Xiaomi models offered for sale by Uber.
