The Xiaomi Mi Note has went up for sale in China through the company’s infamous flash sale. In just three minutes, all units of the phablet were sold out, with reservations exceeding 22 million. Even though the Mi Note marks a different pricing strategy from the Chinese company, consumers don’t seem to mind.
Of course, typical of Xiaomi, the number of units sold were not disclosed, which opens up room for speculation in regards to the actual number of units available. However, Xiaomi claims that there are as many as 22 million reservations for the new phablet. While this number will not necessarily translate to sales, it gives us a good idea of the Mi Note’s popularity.
The Mi Note is the Chinese company’s new flagship phablet, which is markedly different from its other cheaper phablet, the Redmi Note. Featuring a 5.7-inch full HD display by JDI and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz quad-core processor, the Mi Note is definitely worthy of the flagship title.
Retailing at 2,299 Yuan (about RM1,330) and 2,799 Yuan (approximately RM1,620) for the 16GB and 64GB models respectively, the Xiaomi Mi Note is only available in China for now. The phablet is expected to be launched in Malaysia in the second-quarter of 2015.
