Two days back, Xiaomi’s president, Lin Bin had revealed that the company would release a new Xiaomi Mi Note Bamboo edition the next day. And just as promised, the company unveiled this special edition and its as good as we predicted.
Xiaomi Mi Note is without any doubt a great device, but in this bamboo version, the phone looks all the more good. The bamboo finish at the back gives it a very unique look that helps it stand apart from other traditional offerings.
The finish is smooth and fits well with the overall design language of the device. In fact, it retains the curved side design and blends with the metal frame that holds the phone together. Like the regular Mi Note edition, the top left corner features the camera sensors while down at the bottom around the middle, you can see the MI logo.
We always love bamboo editions of famous flagship models (like Oneplus One) and this particular Xiaomi Mi Note Bamboo edition is no exception. Except for the back, the front retains the same looks as the regular white edition.
Also, the company has smartly priced this special Xiaomi Mi Note Bamboo Edition appropriately and you can pre-order it in China for around $370, which is a great price considering its specs.
To recap, the Xiaomi Mi Note comes with the Snapdragon 801 processor and Adreno 330 GPU. The 5.7-inch display up front sports a resolution of 1920 x 1080 full HD translating into a pixel density of 386 ppi. The rear camera is of 13MP with dual tone dual LED flash and is capable of recording 4K videos while front shooter is of 4MP. The phone supports 4G on both its SIM card slots.
Overall, the Xiaomi Mi Note Bamboo Edition looks like a winner. We have added a few hands on pictures of this new device down below for your viewing pleasure. [source]
