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.
It will cost about 520-530 outside china which is a pretty killer deal.

You can get a lot of better flagships with that price tag.

50-60 bucks more for a brand name? i am ready to pay. 2.8Ghz SD810 CPU imagine how much heat it will throw at that clock speed or else its PA's mistake i don't know. 3000Mah for a LCD display of QHD resolution & Gigantic 5.7 screen? Thats a bigg Noo for me..:(

Nothing as specail as Apple's iBend 6/6+. You actually get a hardware that justifies it's price tag with the latest specs and an extensively versatile OS that allows you to make it truly yours, instead of being stuck with what the manufacturer thinks is best for you...

You actually get a hardware that i justifies it's price tag with useful stuff (instead of useless branding), like the latest specs, higher capacity storage/ram, and an extensively versatile OS that allows you to make it truly yours, instead of being stuck with what the manufacturer thinks is best for you...

no one even mentioned Apple here, y the hell r u bringing up Apple. Does your ego hurt when someone asks a simple question? Or r u the owner of Xiaomi trying to protect your brand? Sick of haters and fanboys getting all jumpy when even some just asks a simple question!!!! I am gonna ask the same question, what's so special about this phone than all the other flagships that have been released this year? Is it better than the galaxy s6 because it has 1GB of more ram? Or is it because Xiaomi magically solved the heating issue ( they only showed benchmark results, which can be easily optimize while the processor could be still downclocked to achieve lower temps similar to what HTC did ). You can of course have a brand you like or dislike, but don't make it like someone killed your mom or something, it's a damn gadget, and yeah, I see how "specail" your comment is.

This one and also regular Mi Note (same size, different SoC and screen) both have Sabre DAC and TI amp for headphone output. And it is better than budget Wolfson in some Exynos SoCs. I wish they'd put it into Mi4 :) .

Xiaomi now expand its market in India rapidly because of the China's Phone market going be saturated very soon. And in China, a very strange thing is once they have enough budged, they will go and buy the iPhone without thinking much, for them, the iPhone is not just a phone, iPhone is the tool that symbolise they entering into the high class life style. Therefore, the Xiaomi market share in China will going to shrink after it reach the top.
