We’ve already detailed the spanking new Xiaomi Mi Note this morning, but China’s Apple had a second phablet up its sleeve.
As the name perhaps suggests, the aluminium-framed Xiaomi Mi Note Pro is even beastlier than the still-impressive standard model, with emphatically top-of-the-range specs – and a price to match.
Shared Xiaomi Mi Note and Mi Note Pro specs include a 5.7in display, 155.1 x 77.6 x 6.95mm measurements, 13MP rear Sony camera, 4MP front camera with 2 micron pixel size, dual 4G SIM compatibility, and Hi-Fi playback with a pair of Texas Instruments OPA1612 amps.
Xiaomi Mi Note Pro specs excel, however, with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, a whopping 4GB of RAM, and QHD resolution (2560 x 1440) on the 5.7in display yielding 515PPI.
Battery is the only real concern here, with the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro powered by a 3,090mAh juice unit. We would’ve welcomed a chunkier phone with a bigger battery, but Sharp’s negative display technology claims to consume energy with remarkable efficiency, allaying our fears somewhat.
The phablet comes with 64GB storage out of the box, and Xiaomi Mi Note Pro price is set at 3,300 Chinese Yuan, or roughly £351 in our money. That’s not hugely expensive by our standards, but quite pricey for a Chinese smartphone. We’ll see how much demand there is when the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro goes on sale on January 27.
