The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is no longer the thinnest or lightest smartphone/phablet in its class. The Chinese Xiaomi Mi Note is thinner, lighter, and its screen is slightly larger at 5.7 inches (0.2 inches larger). Smartphone manufacturers have been touting the sleek form factors of their new technology, but is it really that important? I don’t think so. The 1080p full-HD screen resolution and processing power are where the Mi Note really shines.
The Xiaomi Mi Note has a 2.5GHZ quad-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, a Sabre digital to analog audio converter (DAC) and it can be used with two SIM cards. The Mi Note will be revealed on January 27, 2015. Before you get excited, there is a Pro version with a whopping 8-core (octa-core) 2GHZ processor, a 2560 x 1440 pixel screen resolution, 64GB of storage capacity, and 4 GB of RAM!
