Earlier this week, Xiaomi announced their latest Redmi Note in China which is set to launch with a gigantic 5.5-inch display sporting a 720p resolution.
Recently, Xiaomi Global VP Hugo Barra, ex-Googler, took it to Google+ and announced that Xiaomi Redmi Note will hit retail shelves in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore in May followed by other international markets.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note comes with a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720p, and is powered by an octa-core MTK6592 chipset. If you don’t know, the handset will ship with two configurations: one will come with a 1.4GHz octa-core processor with 1GB of RAM on board while the other one features a 1.7GHz processor and 2GB of RAM.
Other features include 13MP camera for photos and videos, 5MP front-facing camera, a 3,200 mAh battery, dual-SIM support, 8GB storage with a microSD card slot and comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed out of the box.
As far as the pricing is concerned the low-end model with 1.4GHz processor and 1GB RAM will retail for $129 while the 1.7GHz/2GB RAM model will come with a $159 price tag. Surely, these prices are really affordable considering the hardware the Xiaomi Redmi Note has to offer.
How many of you will get your hands on the device if you’re residing in Taiwan, Hong Kong or Singapore?
