Xiaomi's Mi Note passes Malaysian certification, expect it soon

Malaysia will miss out on early Apple Watch launches, but here's a little consolation

Xiaomi announced the Mi Note earlier this year. And almost immediately, dashed our hopes of seeing it as it was for China only.

It seems the device is finally making a trip, and Malaysia will be one of the first few countries to get our hands on this device outside of China.

As you can see in the picture, SIRIM (Standard and Industrial Research Institute of Malaysia) has approved a couple of Xiaomi smartphones. According to a report from Oizoioi, the device with the registration number 2015011 is the Mi Note, while the other one is the Mi4 variant.

The 5.7in phablet is running a quad-core processor with 3GB of memory and is shaping up to be a good option for people who want something like Samsung's Note phones minus the hefty price tag.

Exactly what that price tag will be is not clear yet, though it's likely it won't be anywhere near as expensive as Samsung's phablet flagship.
