Consulting firm KGI Investment Advisory is predicting that Xiaomi will ship between 13 to 15 million Mi Notes this year, with sales peaking between the months of March and May. The firm also expects the company’s production to experience hurdles in the initial couple of months before the output settles between 1 to 2 million units per month.
The news comes mere days after the top Chinese smartphone player, which also became the world’s third largest smartphone manufacturer in Q3 last year, announced the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro phablets. However, it isn’t yet clear whether or not KGI’s estimate includes both models of the device.
The Mi Note runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 with 2.5GHz quad-core CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. It features a 5.7-inch 1080p display, 3 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal memory. On the other hand, the Mi Pro packs in a more powerful 64 bit Snapdragon 810, and features a 5.7-inch Quad HD display. It comes with 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal memory by default.Via
