Xiaomi officially launched the Mi Note Pro today, a high-range phablet that looks exactly like an iPhone! Well, not really, some may say it’s even better! Let’s see what this little puppy is all about, shall we?
Mi Note Pro is pushing the limits of large smartphones with incredible tech builds. It packs a sunlight-optimized 5.7” QHD 2560×1440 display made by Sharp that has 515 pixels per inch and, under the hood, you will find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 4 GB of RAM, a 64GB eMMC 5.0 storage module plus a dual-SIM slots with LTE cat 9 support. The camera is a 13MP sensor with OIS. The device is powered by a 3090 mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0 to keep things running.
Design-wise, Mi Note Pro has a 3D inward curved Gorilla Glass panel on the front and back paired with an aluminum frame. It also sports an ESS ES9018K2M audio decoder that offers 24-bit/192 KHz audio support.
Xiaomi’s newest Note Pro runs on Android with a MIUI 6 skin and supports Google services in most countries, the exception being China, of course.
The initial price of the Pro was $532 but now the price was set at $483, a very good price for a pretty good-looking and functioning item. The phone goes on sale in China starting May 12th and there is no availability news for other countries at the moment.
