Xiaomi Mi Note Pro

Xiaomi has surprised the lot, with not one but two devices announced and although the leaks pointed out at something in the Redmi Note series, this new Mi Note series has two devices already. While the Xiaomi Mi Note is the first in the series, having some cool specs, the Xiaomi Note Pro takes it to the other level altogether, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB RAM.

Update: The Mi Note Pro is launched in China, and it is going for sale on May 12th, for a price of RMB 2999 (which equals to about Rs. 32000 in India).

With the display, Xiaomi limited the screen size to the same, i.e. 5.7-inch screen size, while the display is bumped to a 2K one (2560×1440 pixels). It also has 64GB eMMC 5.0 Flash and LTE-CAT 9 (up to 450Mbps download speeds).

The LG G Flex 2, announced at the CES 2015, had the 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 which is the same Xiaomi is bringing into the Mi Note Pro, along with Adreno 430 GPU, while there is a 4GB LPDDR4 RAM.

The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro comes with a 3090 mAh battery, a little higher in capacity when compared to the Mi Note. Other than that there is not much of a difference in features like the same 13MP rear camera with dual-tone LED Flash, OIS, Sony BSI sensor and the 4K video recording support. As well as at the front the device packs the same 4MP camera. It will be running on Android 4.4 Kitkat based MIUI. And reportedly, it has the same 161 gram weight and 6.95mm thickness as well.

With the bumped up connectivity support of LTE-Cat 9, the other connectivity features are similar to the Mi Note. That includes WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4/5 GHz), WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.

The pricing set for Mi Note Pro, is ¥3299, which is about $533 (though we don’t have the information about availability and price outside the Chinese market).

  • From the picture I can tell that Xiaomi has really worked to make a minimal and colorful UI as well, I’m really impressed with their start to 2015. It seems like they want to dominate Q1 because all I hear is Xiaomi!

      its also on news healines, Xiaomi releases phone targeting the Iphone users. It great to see Chinese phone comapanys finally show that they can also make good quality devices. I expect either prices for smartphones to go down or the quality for Apple or Samsung to go much higher and deliver a much higher ratio of premium aspects in a smartphone

    Very simple and elegant design. This is what makes a superior smartphone. It looks like a lot like an Iphone 6 and i love the design on the phone. It looks better than the Iphone and i really like how its really thin. The gold color makes it better looking and the price tag on it is hard to resist. I wish these phones made their way into North America. Great start to 2015 and Xiami seems to be advancing alot year after year

  • I AM JUSY LOOKING FORWARD TO BUY MI NOTE PRO.HOPE IT WILL BE RELEASED SOON.IT IS A BEAST OF A PHONE WITH GREAT PRICE RANGE.

  • PRATHEESH PS

    There are Reports claiming that Xiaomi is using SD 810 v2.1 which doesn’t have any Heating Issues of 810 chip.Like what they said before in Mi4i about SD 615,I think it is just marketing .Rest of SPecs are just killer ones.So I hope Phoneradar reviews it soon .
