Xiaomi have announced the details of their LTE Redmi Note which will cost just 999 Yuan and will be available from August 12th.

The first and most important details is that the Redmi Note is that will it work with LTE networks outside of China? Well we believe support could be a little hit and miss depending on where you live (Xiaomi havenā€™t announced which bands the Note will use yet). As far as we know at this time is that the TD-LTE version will launch on 12th August, while the FD-LTE will be available from 26th August. The FD version will also have WCDMA 3G support as it is designed for use on China Unicom networks.

    4G is a nice addition but seems like an odd decision to go from the significantly more powerful MT6592 to the Snapdragon 400. Why not MT6595? Seems a bit under powered for a phablet…

    snapdragon 400 and single sim is just a blow…. BTW this redmi note right now has MTK 8core and really no problems with GPS and other stuff that bothers other phones with MTK 8core.

    I’d still goes for the mediatek powered device. Dual sim is a must in emerging markets and 3G is all you really need.
