Xiaomi intros the Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition for just $370
Xiaomi today introduced a special variant of its Mi Note smartphone, called Xiaomi Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition. Obviously, this comes with a bamboo rear cover, which makes the device 5 grams lighter than the regular model.

Surprisingly, the Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition doesn't cost more than the regular version of the handset. Thus, if you happen to be in China, you'll be able to get one for about $370 (2,299 CNY in local currency). According to Xiaomi, the new handset will be available to buy starting next week, on March 24.

While it's aesthetically different from the simple Mi Note, the Mi Note Natural Bamboo Edition doesn't offer different specs. So you'll get the same 5.7-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 13 MP rear camera, 4 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Xiaomi didn't say if it's planning to also launch a bamboo edition of the Mi Note Pro (which is more powerful than the Mi Note, coming with a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4 GB of RAM). Moreover, for now we don't know when (or if) the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro will be released globally.

This isn't the first time Xiaomi uses bamboo for one of its handsets. Back in January, the company released several wooden back covers (including a bamboo one) for the Mi 4 smartphone.

Why called your own phablet 'Note' like Samsung? Is there no other name in the dictionary they can use?
