Xiaomi Mi Note launched, featuring 5.7-inch display, Snapdragon 801 chipset, 13-megapixel camera: Specifications and features
As expected, Xiaomi today launched its latest flagship device. But unlike what was widely rumored, it is not the Mi 5, but the Mi Note, which as the name suggests is a flagship phablet. The Mi Note is priced at 2,299 Yuan, which roughly translates to around Rs 23,000.
As far as specifications are concerned, the Mi Note flaunts a 5.7-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display with dynamic contrast pixel adjustment technology, which automatically improves contrast of darker areas to make the picture appear better. The device boasts a 2.5D curved glass with Gorilla Glass 3 protection on both sides, which makes the device resistant to scratches and shattering.
As for power, the Mi Note is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Also included are 16GB and 64GB internal storage.
For photography enthusiasts, the Mi Note features a 13-megapixel rear shooter with optical image stabilization. It is accompanied by a two-tone flash similar to the one on the Apple iPhone 6, and it also boasts a low light mode, wherein users are able to adjust the intensity of the LED flash. On the front, there is a 4-megapixel selfie snapper.
Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The phablet is also very slim at 6.95mm slim body, which is much slimmer than the 8.9mm Mi 4 and the 7.1mm iPhone 6 Plus phablet. It also weighs only 162 grams, which too is less than the 172 grams iPhone 6 Plus.
