Xiaomi, the company commonly called “Apple of China” has just unveiled the flagship Mi Note, which is being widely seen as a challenger to Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus.

Mi Note sports 5.7-inch full HD display, and is wrapped in Gorilla Glass 3 at the front and back with curved design, with a metal frame around the edge. The curved glass edge appears to be quite similar to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Mi Note is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB RAM, and comes with a 5.7-inch 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with OIS and f/2.0 aperture, a 4-megapixel front-facing camera, and 4G LTE with dual SIM (micro/nano). It also comes with 24-bit/192KHz lossless audio support thanks to the ESS ES9018K2M audio decoder.

Chief Executive Lei Jun who introduced the Mi Note at a media event in Beijing emphasized that the new flagship was shorter (155.1 mm vs 158.1mm), thinner (6.95mm vs 7.1mm) and lighter (161 grams vs 172 grams) than the iPhone 6 Plus.

Here are the specifications of Xiaomi’s Mi Note:

  • 5.7-inch 1080p Full HD Display from JDI
  • 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 16GB or 64GB of storage
  • 3000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
  • 4G LTE with dual SIM (micro/nano)
  • 13MP camera with OIS and f/2.0 aperture, 4MP front-facing camera
  • ESS ES9018K2M audio decoder
  • 6.95mm thickness
  • Weighs just 161 grams

The most attractive part about the Xi Note is the price. The 16GB model will be available for ¥2299 (approx. $370) and the 64GB model will be available for ¥2799 (approx. $451). It will go on sale in China soon.

Along with the Mi Note, Xiaomi also unveiled a higher-end Xi Note Pro, which comes with the 64-bit 8-core Snapdragon 810 with GB LPDDR4 RAM, 2k display (2560×1440 at 515 PPI) and LTE-CAT 9 (up to 450Mbps download speeds). The Xi Note Pro will go on sale in March, and will be available for ¥3299 (approx. $532).
