After a lot of speculations, Xiaomi yesterday launched 2 new versions of its popular Note lineup. CEO Lei Jun was not dressed in his usual Steve Jobs style clothing. He was kept referring to iPhone 6+ as the head to head competitor for his new product lineup. It good to see Xiaomi stepping away from its “Lets-Make-It-Like-Apple” policy and this time, they have definitely gone many steps ahead of the competitors in the design department.

Everyone were expecting a successor for the MI series. Probably a MI4+ or MI5. A refreshed Note was also expected. But none expected that the next flagship offering from Xiaomi would be the top end MI Note. So definitely MI Note is not a successor to the budget device Redmi Note. It is a fusion between the top spec of the MI series and the large screen from the Note series. The Mi Note is a high end device with a 5.7 inch Full HD display. It has a curved display glass protected by 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by Snapgraon 801 and has 3GB of RAM. It has a 13MP primary camera with OIS and a 4MP front camera with a large 2 micron pixel sensor. It has a 3000 mAh battery and supports LTE on both its SIM. The design has some appealing curves on all sides along with a metal rim decorating its body.

The 16GB variant would cost $370 (Rs 23k) and the 64GB would cost $450 (Rs 28k). It is clear that the Mi Note is not a budget device and is aimed at the high end market.

CEO Lei Jun didn’t stop here. He went to introduce another top end variant of the Mi Note, the Mi Note Pro. Priced at $530 (Rs 33k), the Mi Note pro resembles the Mi Note design but at heart, it is powered by a a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and sports a Quad HD display. It has a whooping 4GB of RAM and has a large 64GB internal storage capacity.
