At the beginning of the year, Xiaomi announced two new high-end Mi Note series phablets. Today, the Chinese manufacturer finally released the top-end one, Mi Note Pro. The phablet features top-of-the-line specs at a reasonable price of $480 (about $50 less than previously expected).
Xiaomi Mi Note Pro sports a 5.7-inch, IPS, 2560x1440 (QHD) resolution display with a stunning pixel density of 515 PPI. It got a 2.5D, slightly curved, protective glass on front and what Xiaomi calls a 3D curved glass on the back.
Under the hood, we’ll find an octa-core, 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapragon 810 SoC (with Adreno 430 GPU), which is slightly surprising as many manufacturers have been turning away from the chip after all the bad press related to HTC One M9 overheating problems. Xiaomi claims, however, that the chip has been fine-tuned in cooperation with Qualcomm and as a result it runs perfectly on the Mi Note Pro. The CPU has as much 4 GB of RAM at its disposal. There’s 64 GB of eMMc storage space with no micro-SD expansion option.
Xiaomi’s new flagship phablet comes with 13 MP, optical-stabilized main camera as well as a 4 MP (2-micron pixels) front-facing one. The 3090 mAh battery supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Connectivity options include LTE Cat. 9, Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth 4.1. The device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with MIUI6 interface on top.
Xiaomi Mi Note Pro will initially only be available in China starting May 12th, but we can probably expect the device to hit other markets as well.
