Xiaomi launched the Mi Note two weeks ago, and surprised many with the Mi Note Pro, a handset with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and 4GB of RAM. The Note has already been launched while the Mi Note Pro will land sometime in February or March. The Mi Note has proven to be a big early success, with Xiaomi saying an early run of units sold out in three minutes.The company did not offer a specific number, but I suspect it was a sizeable amount of units available. Xiaomi tends to do these staggered sales where units are made available in small bursts, it is something that has worked before for the company as it sold nearly 70 million units in 2014, with the bulk of its sales from China alone. It seems even if the Mi Note handsets don't bring Xiaomi?s success to global markets, the company remains to be in rude health in its homeland.
