Beastly Xiaomi Mi Note Pro available for pre-orders priced at $480 USD; phablet ships next week
The Xiaomi Mi Note Pro features a 5.7-inch LCD screen with a 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 515ppi. Powering the phone is the Snapdragon 810 SoC with an octa-core 2.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU handling graphics. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of non-expandable memory. A 13MP camera with OIS is on back with a 4MP front-facing camera available for selfies and video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed. The device supports LTE-Cat 9 which provides data speeds as fast as 450Mbps.
For $480 USD, the Xiaomi Mi Note Pro gives you a nice sized bang for the buck. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this will be the phone that Xiaomi will use to break into new markets in the U.S. and Europe.
