Considering how quickly the company has risen to fame, particularly in Asia, it’s hard to believe that Xiaomi is only just now preparing to turn 5 years old. The company’s birthday is officially on April 6th, but they are celebrating early with the announcement of several new product offerings.

Xiaomi Mi Note Pink Edition, Xiami Mi 4 2GB variant, and Redmi 2A


First up, let’s start with smartphones. While Xiaomi revealed a new Pink version of the Xiaomi Mi Note called the “Mi Note Pink Edition”, there’s really nothing new here outside of the color. Moving along, Xiaomi has also finally showcased a variant of the device that includes 2GB of RAM, lowered from the original 3GB. The end result is a cheaper price tag of 1,6999 Yuan ($274), versus the original price of about $290.


For those that are looking for an extremely budget-friendly option from Xiaomi, the new Redmi 2A has been announced with an aggressive price tag of just 599 Yuan, or roughly $96.65. The Redmi 2A trades out the Snapdragon 410 found in the original Redmi 2, in favor of a 1.5GHz Leadcore LC1860 quad-core CPU with a Mail T628MP2 GPU. The rest of the specs include 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, a 4.7-inch 720p display, 4G LTE, two SIM slots, and a 2,200 mAh battery.

A 4K 55-inch Mi TV 2 model


Recently Xiaomi brought a budget-priced 1080p 40-inch model Mi TV 2 to the market, but now they’re giving us something a bit further upscale. The new 55-inch 4K model has a Samsung RGB LCD panel and is powered by a quad-core Cortex A17 processor at 1.4GHz, paired with 2GB RAM with 8GB storage, a wireless 8-speaker soundbar, and Dolby MS12 virtual surround sound.

As you might expect, the 4K model isn’t going to be ultra cheap, but at 4,999 Yuan ($806), it is still extremely aggressively priced compared to most other 4K displays out there on the market today.

A smart scale and a smart socket


The last two items announced by Xiaomi are a bit less conventional, namely a Smart Scale and a Smart Socket.

The new Xiaomi Mi Smart Scale is basically Xiaomi’s take on something like the Fitbit Aria scale, giving you a way to track weight, BMI and more using the Mi Fit app and Bluetooth 4.0 for syncing. The big difference here between other smart scales is the price tag. At only 99 Yuan — roughly $16 — the Mi Smart Scale is an absolute steal, especially when you consider that the Aria is priced above $100.


Lastly, we have a Smart Socket that is designed with 3 USB charging ports, supports fast charging, has a childproof internal shutter mechanism, and, of course, acts as a surge-protector to. This particular accessory will run for 49 Yuan ($8).

Xiaomi Mi Note Pro Phablet First Look & Reviews || Specifications Latest tech news, gaming news, latest Smartphones, tablets and other new technology gadgets..Our official website is www.phonietech.com http://youtu.be/5wKUEZzSWKk New Oppo Mirror 3 Specifications Getting the specs out of the way first, Xiaomi Note Pro features a 1440x2560 pixels JDI panel, which would make it one with the enviable 515ppi pixel density. Not only that, but it is also blessed with the whopping 4 GB of RAM, and the highly-anticipated Snapdragon 810 chipset, making it an Android 5.0 64-bit powerhouse. Rounding up the great offering are a 13 MP rear Sony camera with optical image stabilization, and a 4 MP UltraPixel front-facer with large two micron pixels. Keeping the lights on will be a 3090 mAh of a battery pack, which is the only seemingly weak point of the phablet, unless the JDI display panel is really power-sipping. It's the Note Pro's design that is the most striking, though, as the phone sports an extremely thin body (which would explain the relatively small juicing capacity) and trimmed bezels for an all-around compact handset, regardless of the hearty screen diagonal. What's more, it comes with the very generous 64 GB storage out of the box. the Xiaomi Note Pro will cost you the equivalent of 3300 yuan, which is about $532 - not a bad pricing for a futureproof phablet with all the bleeding edge bells and whistles Subscribe for more tech videos.
