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).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
