Is this something that will be available unlocked in the US? Thank you

You have to learn more and more, especially before you give your 'opinion', not you experience
Very bad copy Xiomi
No S Pen?
Very Bad ! Oh Sorry ! Mi Pen ! Ha Ha
MasEnha, 26 Oct 2016I think you need to learn more and more.Nope Nope Nope, I think youre who must learn about "UX".
Curved screens look nice but aren't as nice to use as flat screens imho.

If you compare the phone to the Note 7 its already over $200 cheaper and it still has most of the specs granted there isn't a stylus or iris scanners but those are really niche features.

I think those videos are best interpreted as a warning on how to not mishandle your phone, after two weeks of baby-ing your new phone you're not going to care too much, but it still doesn't mean you should fold it into your wallet.

The most expensive one is the global or international version which probably has the licenses for those LTE bands. You might be able to buy a cheaper one and wait until someone hacks the phone to unlock those bands though if the hardware for them is in there.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2016LG started it with the G Flex. No it wasn't! Those edge like on LG'S are not really edgy like on those Samsung, BB, and this chinese OEM, Its just looking like "edgy" like on the one with vivo's phone, it was just a typical flat with looking "edgy" corners and nothing more than looked a like on it like those "real" edgy phones, LG has nothing to do with it.
Where is IRIS Scanner which shown on commercial? :D.Next Xiaomi lie :D.There are a lot of people says this is Samsung Note7 replacement.They are blind :D
sa11oum, 25 Oct 2016Before anyone buys a Xiaomi phone, go to YouTube and see JerryRigEverything's tests on Xiaomi ... moreI wouldn't make decision solely based on that. Mi 5 didn't pass the bend test but it surely is very popular (2nd most loved on gsmarena at the moment) and nobody complaints about it being bent when stored in jeans' pocket (so it's still stronger than iPhone 6). With 64GB version down to RMB 1799, it's pretty much the best price/performance ratio for a SD820 device right now.
same here, after all those rumors I got super excited abou this release and I thought this would be my phone for the next 3 years, but no, they had to ruin it
the 12-and-23-MP dual camera setup with OIS, with the bezelless display we saw days ago, iris scanner, AMOLED QHD 5,7-inch display, and snapdragon 821, 4GB and 128GB, plus the ultrassonic fingerprint they already use for 400/500$ would have been the perfect phone for me...
complete turn off for me
In Hugo Barras live demo, he made it sound as if the world LTE bands are only available in the most expensive model. Is that true?
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2016the name fits perfectly... Xiaomi Me Too... err I meant Xiaomi Mi Note 2LOL!
$415 for the low-end model sounds good but the global version will probably cost much higher like the top model is. The Mi Mix's border-less design and price is waaay more interesting than this Edge clone with bigger Sony-esque bezels.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2016Looks like a non-overpriced Note7No one OEM can make Note. If some could, the price would be similar.
Even if they copy the design and steal the name, nothing to do with Note, ignorant.
That's why US, China, and Taiwan helplessly try to kill the Note line.
im fine without qHD, tbh i play alot some games on my phone and qHD its just a big NO battery/performance wise.
no wacom stylus immediately makes it a non-alternative for the note 7.
