Xiaomi launches Redmi Pro Android smartphone
Redmi Note Pro is finally official and promises to drive Xiaomi even higher than it is right now. This handset features a premium, full metal unibody design, with a 2.5D glass front and a brushed metal finish on its body. Even more, it comes as one of the few 5.5-inch handsets in the sub-$300 USD price range to pack a full HD OLED display.
These are the three Xiaomi Redmi Note Pro variants announced and their highlights:
- MediaTek Helio X20, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage
- MediaTek Helio X25, 3 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage
- MediaTek Helio X25, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage
All the three variants come with a fingerprint reader placed on the front, 13 MP + 5 MP dual rear cameras with dynamic bokeh, a 4050 mAh battery with fast charging capabilities, USB Type-C, and dual-SIM support. One of the SIM slots can act as a microSD slot, but by using it for this purpose, the handset can only use one SIM.
The Redmi Note Pro ships with Android 6.0.1-based MIUI 8 firmware and retails for about $225 USD, $255 USD, and $300 USD (the prices of the variants mentioned earlier, in the same order).
