Xiaomi Mi Note: first teardown reveals internal hardware and structure

Xiaomi Mi Note Teardown
The Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro are the two latest smartphones from the largest Chinese smartphone manufacturer. The design of these handsets has been known to us since last week when they have been officially announced. But what's under the hood?

Xiaomi - the world's third smartphone manufacturer by number of units shipped - recently unveiled two new high-end smartphones, the Mi Note, and the Mi Note Pro. In pure Xiaomi style, the two new handsets offer a very good price-performance ratio. The Mi Note is priced starting at $370 and comes with a Snapdragon 801 chipset and 5.7-inch Full HD display. The Mi Note Pro features a 2560 by 1440 pixel resolution and the latest Snapdragon 810 chipset, all at a price of about $450.

Our colleagues from have gotten their hands on the Xiaomi Mi Note and have disassembled the phablet piece by piece, revealing all of the miniature components that find a house in the 6.95 mm body.

Needless to say, there were no surprises to report once the process was finished. The back cover of the Xiaomi Mi Note can be relatively easily removed with a plastic jack. To gain access to the built-in 3000 mAh battery, the main camera and its LED flash unit, or the speakers, there are a lot of screws which need to be removed, but all of the operations succeeded with the right levels of patience.
