John , 30 Mar 2014Can we use this phone in the USA with T-Mobile?NO 3g, only voice (2g), and very weak/poor voice.
NO WCDMA band, and GSM missing the 850 band, Heads up. If you use this phone anywhere other than in China, DO DO UR RESEARCH.
Anonymous, 31 Mar 2014I'm guessing this device comes with the same OS as the hongmi and will still have loads of chi... moreIn china only.but in may in singapore xiaomi redmi note will have wcdma and google.my brother live in singapore.can not wait to buy and bring to indonesia
I'm guessing this device comes with the same OS as the hongmi and will still have loads of chinese characters throughout making it difficult for non chinese speaking folk? Also I assume no google play services or google play out of the box?
I live in India. When I pre order it, then whenever I will get the phone, will I get wcdma model?
Right now in China Xiaomi is selling TD-SDMA version so its not gonna work on 3G elsewhere. Look for the WCDMA release shouldnt take long.
this phone could have been better with RADIO, Gorilla glass protection and Active Noise Cancellation
Can i order directly from their store ???? I just want ONE Redmi Note .... could you guys help me ????
Nixon, 22 Mar 2014Where can i buy it - im from Vietnam..... I just have a chance to try Xiaomi phone from my Chi... moreThere is no way you can buy one if you are not in China. Even if you are in China, your chance of getting one is less than 1/10000%. Preorder over a million, supply around 30-50 thousand. You could get one at aliexpress for $200 over its original price after batches are shipped.
Where can i buy it - im from Vietnam..... I just have a chance to try Xiaomi phone from my Chinese friend and i really love that by the way. How much is Redmi Note???? Thank you guys
AnonD-176317, 20 Mar 2014is dual sim card phone!Ya doul sim and otg supported
Xiaomi usually will sell China only 3G (similar to Hong Mi 1S situation now) for the first batch of new launch phones. Gotta show some home land love right?
Next they will insert WCDMA into the next batch of 'international' launch countries which currently consists of Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Malaysia is next on the list.
What I love about the Redmi phones price is that they still the same for increasingly better specs! From Hongmi (China) to Redmi (International) to Redmi 1S to Redmi Note!
I pity the telcos as customers of countries touched by Xiaomi are now having a paradigm shift about going for the subsidized contract model when thinking about buying new phones...
