Xiaomi unveiled the Mi Note Pro in January, along with the slightly less impressive Mi Note. Now Xiaomi’s most powerful phone to date is available in China starting May 12th for 2,999 Yuan, or a little more than $480.
The phone features a 5.7 inch, 2560 x 1440 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, and a 3090 mAh battery with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology.
Other features include a 13MP rear camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor, a 4MP front-facing camera, 64GB of eMMC 5.0 storage, 802.11ac WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Mi Note Pro runs Android 5.0 with Xiaomi’s MIUI user interface.
The phone also sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. That’s a 2.5 GHz, 64-bit octa-core processor which has taken some heat… for its handling of heat.
Xiaomi says that the Mi Note Pro will outperform the HTC One M9 and LG G Flex 2 (another phone with a Snapdragon 810 chip) because the Mi Note Pro has version 2.1 of Qualcomm’s processor.
Update: So much for that modified chip. There are reports from early Mi Note Pro users that their phones are overheating.
