If you’re a Malaysian customer who’s been patiently awaiting a phablet from your favorite manufacturer, your wait is over.
Xiaomi is bringing its Mi Note to Malaysia. The Mi Note features a 5.7-inch, Full HD display (1920 x 1080p screen resolution; 386ppi), 2.5Ghz, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (non-expandable), dual-SIM support, 4G LTE, Qualcomm’s Quick 2.0 charging support, 4MP front camera, 13MP back camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), Hi-Fi audio (24-bit/192Khz), and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Mi Note has a processor that’s somewhat outdated at this point (the Snapdragon 801 is found in early 2014 devices and was upended by the Snapdragon 805 that arrived at the end of last year), and the 5.7-inch display is on par with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and 4. The device’s OIS tech, however, is on par with the newest photography and videography standard in the current high-end tech market, alongside of the 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The 3,000mAh battery should be standard for devices of this behemoth size (we’re glad to see it here), and the Hi-Fi audio should provide a stellar listening experience for those who are discontented with most audio experiences on the market at the moment.
This device, of course, doesn’t pack the same punch as Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro, which features a Quad HD screen and 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, among other top features, but Mi Note customers can look on the bright side: whatever it does or doesn’t have, it won’t overheat like the Snapdragon 810 that’s present inside the Note Pro.
The Mi Note will be available for sale in Malaysia on July 28, 2015 for RM 1,549 (or $409 USD).
Xiaomi has finally launched its Mi Note in Malaysia, which is their premium offering with a larger screen. At 5.7 inches, this goes against the likes of the iPhone 6 Plus and the Galaxy Note 4.
The Mi Note will go on sale on 28th July 2015 with the retail price of RM 1,549 and it will be offered on contract from our telcos a bit later. At the moment, we are just getting the standard Mi Note and not their top of the line Mi Note Pro that comes with a Quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB of LP-DDR4 RAM.
To recap on the specs, the Mi Note in its standard form gets a 5.7″ Full HD display that pushes a pixel density of 386ppi and it runs on a 2.5GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM. For the Malaysian market we are getting 64GB of internal storage which is non expandable. Like its new flagships, the Mi Note gets dual-SIM (micro-SIM + nano-SIM) support with 4G LTE connectivity. As usual, it is offered only in White colour for now.
For imaging, it gets a 13MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilisation, while the front gets a 4MP camera with larger pixels, similar to HTC’s Ultrapixel shooter. Sound on the other hand, will fully support lossless 24bit/192 KHz audio, the first from Xiaomi. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh capacity battery that supports Quick Charge 2.0. Overall it weighs 161 grams with a thickness of 6.95mm, which is both thinner and lighter than the iPhone 6 Plus despite having a larger screen and battery.
