mi note_2A couple of weeks ago, Xiaomi announced their latest smartphone that came in the form of the Xiaomi Mi Note. This is the company’s latest smartphone along with the slightly more powerful Mi Note Pro, and it looks like the company already has a hit on their hands. According to the reports, it seems that Xiaomi has managed to sell out their first batch of Mi Notes in a matter of minutes.

Unfortunately Xiaomi did not mention how many units they actually sold, but a Xiaomi VP had recently revealed that they had received 220 million reservations, so it is safe to assume that they sold quite a fair bit. This kind of reception to Xiaomi phones isn’t new. Previously we had seen the Chinese company move tens of thousands of smartphones in minutes, sometimes hundreds of thousands.

This is probably thanks to the fact that China is such a populous country, and also because Xiaomi has typically priced their phones at very low prices, making them extremely affordable to the masses. For example the Mi Note is priced at roughly $371 for the 16GB model, and for that price you are getting some pretty impressive specs.

For starters it will come with a 5.7-inch Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, dual SIM card support, a 13MP rear-facing camera with an aperture of f/2.0, OIS, and is made by Sony, and will also come with a front-facing 4MP camera that is somewhat identical to HTC’s UltraPixel.
