This is quite an interesting and unique concept, which sees the world s two most-valuable startups collaborate for the first time ever.

As mentioned above, Xiaomi launched the Mi Note in China earlier this year. The phablet flaunts a 5.7-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display, and is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM.
