Xiaomi’s two new flagship devices announced

We were already seeing a lot of rumours about the imminent launch of Xiaomi’s next flagship devices. Xiaomi was already doing well with its previous generation flagships Mi4 and now it comes up with two new flagship devices, Mi Note and Mi Note Pro. Both the devices with a screen size of 5.7″ have stormed their way into the phablet territory and stirred up the entire niche with their beastly specs. This isn’t the first time that Xiaomi is cramming best-in-class hardware into a reasonable price point and many people including me appreciate that. Xiaomi touts the design of the phone particularly the back as 3D glass and the front as 2.5D.

The Mi Note sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC can be considered a previous generation device since next two successors of Snapdragon 800 series are already out. However, the Mi Note Pro pretty much tears the specs sheet apart with the latest 64-bit Octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor. The only real competitor I can think of to this phone is the LG G Flex 2 which has the same chipset. Yes, this is the second device in the world with a Snapdragon 810. Along with 2K resolution and 4GB of RAM, I can’t even imagine the out-of-the-world performance it will bear. Here is a quick rundown of the complete specifications of both the device.
