Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is announced with Snapdragon 650 SoC and 4050mAh battery
This morning, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro has been introduced by the upstart Chinese manufacturer. The handset comes with a 5.5-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 650 chipset, which carries a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 510 GPU. Two versions are offered, one with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. The second features 3GB of RAM with 32GB of ROM.

The 16MP rear camera offers Phase Detection Auto Focus, and an f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing 5MP camera also comes with an f/2.0 aperture, and handles selfies and video chats. The 4050mAh battery charges from 0% to 50% in just one hour. A fingerprint sensor has been placed under the rear camera, and the handset measures 8.65mm thick while weighing 164 grams.

Available in Champagne Gold, Silver and Dark Grey, the Redmi Note 3 Pro carries support for 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi,  Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, GLONASS, VoLTE and USB OTG connectivity. The 2GB RAM/16GB ROM model will launch on January 17th, priced at the equivalent of $152 USD. Xiaomi did not mention pricing or availability for the 3GB RAM/32GB ROM model.

The phone is equipped with a special technology that adjusts the readability of the display, by changing the contrast for each pixel in real time.


Thanks for the tip!

If the camera of Redmi Note 3 Pro is ISOCELL so A9 is better. If the camera of Redmi Note 3 Pro is IMX234, it'll be way better.

Redmi Note would probably have the IMX298 if it is a Sony sensor

Given the specs at that price, there's no way the A9 wins at value for price. If you throw $150 at Samsung they'll give you awful 5MP sensor.

Redmi Note 3 Pro (32GB/3GB) vs Samsung J7. Latter is slightly more expensive. Note 3 Pro might not fit to almost premium device seekers as A9, but it's definetely unbeatable budget phablet. Mi Note 2 or Mi 5 Plus whatever is Xiaomi prepping for high-end phablet category, it will be packed with the SD820 and will be cheaper than the A9.

I Didn't Think The Galaxy A9's Chipset Had Been Announced Or Leaked.

Have you ever owned any Xiaomi devices before? I am using a Mi4w to comment. Let me tell you why this Mi4w is the first and also the last Xiaomi device for me. First of all, my Mi4w sometimes stops responding, or suddenly suspended even when it is in standby mode. I missed some calls because of that. The problem happened once or twice when I was on MIUI and happens almost everyday when I'm on CM. And guess what, not only I but also some other Mi4 users on XDA have to suffer that problem. Secondly, camera is not so good, pictures are usually more yellow, then it's more terrible if you record videos, sound quality is so bad, too much loud noise. Thirdly, warranty is something you should highly consider before you order a Mi. I don't know about your country, but if I need my Mi4w to be fixed, I need to send it to China and don't even know whether it will be fixed correctly, or it might not make its way back to my home! So I'm telling you this: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY. Everything has its price.

My mother owns a Redmi Note and her phone is still running fine today. You probably got a bad batch (especially if you imported it from some shoddy dealer).

there's no such device called Mi4w. there are Mi4, Mi4i and Mi4c only.

36. GeorgeDao123

There are 2 variants of Mi4 without "i" and "c". They are Mi4W and Mi4LTE. Okay? Just Google it.

no, wrong, the mi4w is fake. it is the mediatek version that is fake because there isn't a mediatek version. you probably imported it and the seller rip you off

I'm pretty sure the mi4w does exist, just it was a fake version of the mi4

I think this Soc is more powerful than helio x10.

isnt it obvious? even SD610 is better than x10

16. pp007

Nope. Sd 610 is better than x20.. Isn't it???

21. Arch_Fiend

No LOL.

Lol.. I was joking my friend. I know how capable are x10 and x20.They are powerful enough to give competition for Qualcomm top end Soc's. But I personally think sd650 is slightly better than x10 in overall performance..

28. Arch_Fiend

The sd650 is good, has basicly the same gpu performance as the adreno 330 in the sd801 which is better than the gpu found in the x10. The sd650 is like an sd801+

Incorrect. Mediatek has many overclocked but still weak cores, that's it. Single A72 core at 1,8GHz in the 650 is 50% faster than A53 at 2,2GHz in the X10 Turbo. Snapdragon also has faster GPU as Adreno 510 is slightly faster than Adreno 330 from SD801 (around Adreno 418 level) while PowertVR 6200 in the X10 Trubo tries to get close to the Adreno 330 from SD800. Regular X10 in the 2GB/16GB version is even slower.

Any differences between 650 and 652 apart from being hexa cores and octa cores.

5. joseanand

Posts: 27; Member since: Aug 14, 2014

their specs look almost identical apart from the core count. 652 may score a little bit higher on multicore benchmark. but gpu performance remains the same.

14. ibend

Posts: 6747; Member since: Sep 30, 2014

thats all.. its identical except that 652 has extra 2 A72-core

That is HUGE difference.

Performance of the dual A72 cores in the SD650 gonna be sustainable almost indefinitly I guess, considering Anandtech's Kirin 950 power consumption chart, on the other hand the SD652 will have much faster short burst with quad A72, but after that have to be throattled more akin to Exynos 7420, rather than the SD810.
