Xiaomi’s Hongmi Note spotted in a new pre order listing

Xiaomi Hongmi Note

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi could be gearing up for the launch of a new phablet called the Hongmi Note. This 5.5 inch device will reportedly come in two variants, both with differing hardware to set it apart in terms of pricing. Interestingly, both models will run an octa core chipset made by MediaTek, a 13 megapixel camera along with a 5 megapixel front camera and expandable storage.

The lower end variant will feature 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and the MediaTek MT6592M 1.4 GHz octa core chipset. The top end variant on the other hand sports a 1.7 GHz MT6592 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Both smartphones will carry a display resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels.

The entry level model is priced at 999 CNY or $162 while the top of the line variant will cost 1,199 CNY ($194) via local retailer Q-Zone. It’s clear that the handset will not be priced heavily at launch, which is a good move by the manufacturer. Xiaomi is slowly expanding into world markets as well, so fans outside of China can be hopeful of its release.

  1. But Xiaomi is getting serious about bigger screen mobile devices. It did release a version of its popular MIUI Android based ROM for tablets recently.

  2. there might be some competition here in terms of price but Samsung still leads in marketing their products. Let’s see how far Xiaomi can give Samsung a good competition here.

  3. Right. Samsung caters to mid and higher tier markets and has a pretty much established name around the world. It will take some time for Xiaomi to compete at the same level with Samsung.

  4. Xiaomi should start using Snapdragon even if it costs a bit more, and should start shipping it’s devices world wide. We will get some options and their market share will increase.

  5. A mid-range device in the phablet category, all ready to give the Samsung Note 3 a run for its money. But it is important to note that these two are not targeting the same market.
