After announcing the Mi Note Pro earlier this year, Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun has now launched the device in its home market.
Xiaomi has risen to the summit in China (and other Asian markets) by selling affordable devices with class-leading hardware, but with the Mi Note Pro, the vendor is targeting the high-end segment. The device will be going on sale in China for 2,999 Yuan, which is the equivalent of $483. For that price, you get some of the best hardware currently available:
- 5.7-inch QHD display with a pixel density of 515 PPI
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 2.5GHz 64-bit octa-core CPU, Adreno 430 GPU
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 64GB eMMC 5.0 internal storage
- 13MP camera (Sony IMX214 sensor) with OIS
- 4MP front camera with 2-micron pixels
- LTE Category 9 connectivity, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1
- 3090mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0
- Hardware-optimized Hi-Fi audio
- MIUI 6 atop Android 5.0
At this stage, there's no word as to when the phone will be offered in markets outside of China. How many of you would be interested in the Mi Note Pro if it was up for sale in your country?
