Xiaomi Mi Note 2 units sold out in 50 seconds

Xiaomi understandably turned more than a few heads with the announcement of the Mi Mote 2, also topping things off quickly with the Mi Mix. The latter is yet to officially go on sale, but the wait shouldn’t be long now, if the suggested November 4 date is met. Meanwhile, the Mi Note 2 already had its first sale today and it went incredibly well.

In fact, the Mi Note 2 officially broke the Mi 5 record, with its first sale concluding in only 50 seconds. Now, to be fair, we can’t be exactly be sure how many units Xiaomi put out in the initial wave, but nonetheless, it is an impressive display of popularity.

In light of the untimely death on Samsung’s Galaxy Note7, the Note 2 arguably came just in time to strike while the iron is hot. The high-end smartphone not only takes after its Korean role model in the design department, rocking a 5.7-inch, curved AMOLED screen, but in terms of other specs as well. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 821 SoC. It is working in tandem with up to 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM and as much as 128GB of snappy UFS 2.0 storage. 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage is the other available option. As for the camera, the Chinese OEM has gone for a 22.56MP Sony IMX318 Exmor sensor with a f/2.0 lens. The main shooter also has EIS digital stabilization for video capture all the way up to 4K.

Today’s sale saw both variants go up for grabs at exactly the price points promised upon launch. That means users, who had already pre-registered and filled out their information, competed to get their hands on either the 4GB plus 64GB version for CNY 2799 ($413) or the 6GB plus 128GB tier for CNY 3299 ($487). It is worth noting that both are Chinese versions without Google Play Services. The global units are expected to cost around CNY 3499 ($520) once they go on sale.

Name me another _built-in_ camera app that allows you to control the amount of sharpness and saturation in photos. I know of none, you’re usually stuck with whatever the manufacturer deemed best (see for example Sony’s oversharpened photos, still present in their flagships even though they got better at it). The only real issue I have with the default camera app is that the autofocus sometimes starts hunting erratically in video mode. What issues do you have with it?

    As for MIUI killing off apps quickly – yes, but only those you haven’t locked on the task manager. If you want the app to not get killed off randomly, lock it by swiping the icon downwards. It even says so in the pop-up the first time you open the task manager, but most people (including me, at first) just close it without reading, then wonder why their apps don’t stay open.

  11. Always sold out o hundred thousand sold in a minute for the china phone. Very rich country!

  12. I wonder if this phone has the huge black bezels. The mi5 does. The mi5s does. But for some reason the mi5s plus doesn’t.

  13. Can anyone tell me if the curved edges have a special feature like the Samsung edge phones or is it just there for no reason like blackberry priv
