Xiaomi celebrates 5th birthday with Redmi 2A, pink Mi Note and more
Let's all sing along. "Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Xiaomi, Happy Birthday to you." On April 6th, Xiaomi turns five-years old. Quite a precocious child, wouldn't you say? To celebrate, the company is introducing the Xiaomi Mi Note Pink Edition. There are no changes to the handset outside of the color. To refresh your memory, the Mi Note features a 5.7-inch display with resolution of 1080 x 1920. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 330 GPU handling graphics. The phone offers 3GB of RAM with 64GB of native storage inside. The camera on back weighs in at 13MP (and includes OIS) while the 4MP front-facing snapper is perfect for selfies and video chat. Keeping the power on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed.

For its birthday, Xiaomi is also offering a more affordable version of the Xiaomi Mi Note. Instead of coming with 3GB of RAM, this version is equipped with 2GB of the sweet stuff. By cutting the size of the RAM chip by 33%, you are saving approximately $16 USD as the price gets dropped from $290 USD to $274 USD. 

Xiaomi has also unveiled the Xiaomi Redmi 2A. Priced at the equivalent of $97 USD, the company removes the quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 SoC found on the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and replaces it with a quad-core 1.5GHz Leadcore LC1860 chipset. That means a new GPU, of course, and thus the Adreno 306 GPU is out and the Mail T628MP2 GPU is in. The rest of the specs include a 4.7-inch glass carrying resolution of 720 x 1280, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of native storage, and dual SIM slots all powered by a 2200mAh battery. The rear camera weighs in at 8MP and a 2MP snapper adorns the front. Android 4.4.4 is pre-installed with MIUI 6 running on top.

Xiaomi also is promoting a $16 USD smart scale that syncs with the MiFit app using Bluetooth 4.0, and a smart socket priced at $8 USD that features 3 USB charging ports and is said to be childproof. This would be perfect for charging all of your mobile devices.

Now if you behave, perhaps Xiaomi will give you a piece of birthday cake.
