Xiaomi has just announced their highly anticipated new device, which is Xiaomi Mi Note and another high-end version of it – Note Pro. We are happy to share with you some first hands-on pictures with you fresh from the announcement stage!

Take a look at the gallery below:

As you can see, the device has some design inspiration from the company’s own Xiaomi Mi4 as it has 3 capacitive keys on the front bottom, metal farm and white plastic back. However, the Mi Note has something new to offer, which includes a 3D glass (on the high-end version) and 2.5 glass (on the lower-end version). Moreover, there is a 4Mp Ultrapixel camera sensor on the front, which is the same as the one on the HTC One M8. What is more, the device spots an interesting back design, which is curved. It provides a great look and better grip for a user. In addition to this, there is a 13mp camera sensor provided by Sony (most likely IMX214), which is also equipped with the OIS and dual tone dual LED flash setup. We are happy to see that the camera sensor and its lenses remain flat with the surface of the back. All of this beauty sits in a fairly compact body for the 5.7 inches phablet device: 55.1x 77.6 x 6.95mm. In comparison, the iPhone 6 Plus measures 158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1 mm. As usual, the Xiaomi was happy to make a lot of iPhone 6 comparisons, where their new flagship phablet wins.

Besides a great design, the Xiaomi Mi Note and the Note Pro have a flagship grade specs. If we start with the regular Note version, it has a Full-HD screen (1080 x 1920), which has a pixel density of 387 ppi. Inside the device, there is a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with Adreno 330 GPU, 16/32 GB of storage. Also, the device has a support for dual 4G SIM cards and has 3GB of RAM. What is more, the Mi Note packs a QuickCharge 2.0 technology, Hi-Fi ESS ES9018K2M DAC high performance two channel 32-bit mobile Hi-Fi Audio chip, all of this is powered by the 3,000 mAh battery and being run by the MIUI skin on top of the Android 5.0.

The high-end version will feature the almighty Snapdragon 810 64-bit chip, 2k 1440×2560 pixels screen, 4 GB of Ram, 64 GB of storage and all other features already included in the regular Mi Note version.
