China’s smartphone maker Xiaomi, which recently raised $1 billion at a staggering $45 billion valuation, has launched a new flagship phone — the Mi Note.

It’s a 5.7-inch device, making it an obvious competitor to the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, but unlike Xiaomi’s iPad-like Mi Pad, it doesn’t closely resemble an Apple device. Nevertheless, it’s a looker, with a metallic frame squeezed between two panes of curved Gorilla Glass 3.

As Engadget points out, the company doesn’t shy from comparing the Mi Note directly to the iPhone 6 Plus, pointing out at its presentation Thursday that it’s both slimmer (6.95mm) and lighter (161g) than Apple’s premium offering.

The device will come in several variants: The base model, hitting China on Jan. 27, comes with a 1080p screen, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera (coupled with a 4-megapixel one at the front) and dual-SIM capability.

One feature that stands out is the use of a Sabre DAC (digital-to-analog audio converter) and dual audio amps, promising great audio quality on both small and large headphones.

The premium “Pro” model, due out in March, will be a true powerhouse, with a quad HD, 2,560 x 1,440 pixel screen, a 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, an Adreno 430 GPU, and 64GB of storage. That model will cost ¥3,299 ($533), while the base model is priced at ¥2,299 ($371).

Xiaomi gave no info about the availability of either device in markets outside of China.

An Umbrella That Protects You From Rain With Just Air, But Only Lasts 30 Minutes

The umbrella market is ripe for innovation, and regular ones just don’t cut it anymore. So oneKickstarter project wants to bring you an umbrella powered by air.

The aptly-named Air Umbrella is a rod-shaped device with a motor, rechargeable lithium battery and fan blade. The device takes in air below the fan blade and forces it out in such a manner that falling rain gets redirected.

The device, which is available in Models A, B and C, comes with an adjustment controller at the bottom that allows users to adjust the speed of the motor.

Model A, which the company says is marketed toward females, is about 12 inches long and has 15 minutes of battery life. Model B is about 20 inches long and has 30 minutes of battery life. Model C is extendable; its length ranges from about 20 inches to 32 inches, also with 30 minutes of battery life.

This Kickstarter project isn’t the first example of an air-powered umbrella. Several otherconcepts have materialized in the past.

However, the Air Umbrella may be the first to be sold on the market. Funding for the project closes on Oct. 24; preorders start at $118, and begin shipping before December 2015, according to the Kickstarter page.

While the Air Umbrella sounds impressive in theory, we’ll need to try it out for ourselves before we ditch our trusty old-fashioned one.
