Beijing-based tech upstart Xiaomi has made quite an impression over the past few years, but its most recent move might also be its cheekiest. The “world’s most valuable startup” has recently unveiled its Mi Note which, sized at 5.7 inches and sporting a 13 megapixel camera at the back, boldly addresses the dominance of large-scale phones from a certain Cupertino-based American counterpart. If the size is a bit daunting, consider that the Mi Note comes encased in wear-proof Gorilla Glass, the parts of which are bound by aluminum trim at the sides – thus reducing the need for an additional case. Other details under the hood include a zippy 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon chip, internal storage options of either 16GB or 64GB, and a crisp Sabre ES9018K2M digital-to-analog converter that makes all FLAC, WAV and MP3s sound perfect. Look for this release to launch in the coming weeks, while an upgraded Mi Note Plus is slated for the end of March.
