During the event today, Lei Jun also announced Mi VR for RMB 199.

Mi VR also ships with a 9-axis inertial motion controller with touch controls, which supports a full range of motion. 

Mi Note 2: Curved to impress
In addition to inheriting Mi Note's original 3D curved glass back, Mi Note 2 uses an innovative flexible OLED display that also allows it to have a 3D curved glass panel on the front. An aluminum frame connects the front and back curved glass seamlessly for a beautiful aesthetic and a wider field of vision.
With a screen-to-body ratio of 77.2%, videos and images look stunning on the immersive 5.7- inch full-HD display of Mi Note, which has a 110% NTSC colour gamut and a high contrast ratio of 100,000:1. 



The main camera on Mi Note 2 uses the 22.56-megapixel Sony IMX318 sensor for high- resolution images with stunning clarity with an f/2.0 aperture and a 77-degree wide angle lens. It also supports 4K video recording with electronic image stabilization for the highest quality movies. 

Mi Note 2 is powered by the latest 2.35GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, offering up to 10% higher speed over the already blazing-fast Snapdragon 820. Mi Note 2 also comes with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, as well as a dedicated audio processor for HD audio quality.
With GPS high precision sensor-assisted positioning (SAP), location services are more accurate and reliable on Mi Note 2. Even when going through a tunnel without a good GPS signal, SAP continues to provide navigation and helps to keep users on track. Despite its ultra thin profile, Mi Note 2 is equipped with a massive 4070mAh battery, with support for Quick Charge 3.0. Mi Note 2 also supports NFC with full read/write functionality for functions such as mobile payment and recharging transport cards.

Specially made for the jetsetting lifestyle, Xiaomi also announced a global version of Mi Note 2 with 37 global network bands, including 22 LTE bands. This means that users will never have to worry about getting a 4G connection wherever they go, including the United States.

Mi MIX: Concept phone with revolutionary edgeless design 

Xiaomi has explored the frontiers of innovation to create an edgeless design on Mi MIX, putting a new spin on the typical smartphone form factor to create a beautiful work of art with incredible craftsmanship. 

With a 6.4-inch screen, Mi MIX has an ultra-high 91.3% screen-to-body ratio made possible because of new innovations that do away with the physical earpiece speaker and proximity sensor on Mi MIX. With the use of piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology, in which a ceramic drive unit converts electrical signals into mechanical energy, Mi MIX is able to let users listen to calls even without an earpiece speaker. An ultrasonic proximity sensor is built into Mi MIX and sits behind the display, replacing the traditional front-facing infrared proximity sensor. 


Other innovations that make the 91.3% screen-to-body ratio possible include a front camera module that is 50% smaller than typical front camera sensors, located at the bottom right corner of the phone. Mi MIX also features a display with rounded edges at the corners of the screen and a custom 17:9 aspect ratio that maximizes screen space for a better content viewing experience. 

With a full ceramic body — including the back and sides, as well as the buttons — Mi MIX features a minimalist design that has been jointly developed with world-renowned designer Philippe Starck.
Equipped with a Snapdragon 821 processor (up to 2.35GHz), Mi MIX is as powerful as it is beautiful. It also has a 4400mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0. 

Mi MIX comes in two configurations: a 4GB + 128GB standard version which retails for RMB 3499 and a special limited edition RMB 3999 version — Mi MIX 18K — featuring 6GB of RAM, 256GB of UFS2.0 storage, as well as 18-karat gold rims around the rear camera and fingerprint sensor. 

Key specs of Mi MIX:
  • 6.4-inch display with edgeless design, ultra-high 91.3% screen-to-body ratio
  • Full ceramic body: Back cover, frame, and buttons
  • Custom 17:9 display, 16:9 viewing area even with soft keys
  • Up to 6GB LPDDR4 RAM; up to 256GB UFS 2.0 storage
  • 2.35GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
  • High-capacity 4400mAh battery, Quick Charge 3.0
  • 16MP PDAF rear camera, 5MP front camera
  • High-precision GPS with sensor-assisted positioning
  • Full NFC functionality: Read, write, card emulation, P2P

Chicago has the second largest public transportation system in the United States. There are several different transport systems to choose from, such as the Metra Commuter Rail, the city buses, or taxi cabs. But if you are new to the Windy City, you might find it confusing at first because of all the routes available. So, here are tips to help you survive Chicago’s public transportation.
 
  1. Plan Ahead
There are a lot of places to visit and things to see in Chicago. To get the most out of your travel, plan ahead on the order of places to go to. This way, you’ll spend less time finding your way and more time enjoying the sights and sounds.
You should also learn which routes to take. Check out which sites are close to train stations or bus stops. You can use a regular map or an online map so you know the location of the places you want to visit and the landmarks you need to watch out for. If you wish to book a cabbie for the duration of your stay in Chicago, go for one who is under a legitimate taxi operating company. Take Universal Taxi Dispatch, for instance.
  1. Check Transportation Fares
Chicago offers you several ways to pay for your transportation. You can pay in cash or through your credit card. There are also transit cards you can load up with your money for easy fare payment. Choose which option is best for your itinerary. If you plan to switch your mode of transportation depending on your schedule, choosing a limited-use card is wiser than buying a full metro card.
  1. Know Your Ride
Chicago public transportation is divided into three major modes:
  • Riding the Bus
When commuting in Chicago, you would most probably take a bus. It is easy as long as you know which bus stops to wait in and what bus you should take. This is precisely the reason why it is important to plan ahead. Always check the destination signs on the bus to make sure you are on the right one.
  • Riding the Train
You can purchase Ventra Cards or tickets in every train station in Chicago. You can also load money into your card if you already have one. Also, each station has a map, so you can double check where you are and where your destination is. Follow the signs to get on the right train.
  • Riding a Taxi
Of course, the most convenient way to get around the Windy City is to ride a taxi since it can take you from point A to point B directly and this taxi service is super cool. And Universal Taxi has made it even easier for you to book a cab simply by downloading its app, input where you are and your destination, then a taxi will be dispatched to your location and take you to your next destination. On top of that, you can always be sure that Universal Taxi cabbies are polite, courteous, and professional.

For you to enjoy the best of this great city, we encourage tourists to take all three modes of transportation for a fuller and richer vacation in Chicago.
