Looks like Xiaomi is on a launch spree. The company unveiled the Redmi 3 smartphone recently, and now it has announced yet another device in the Redmi series. The latest one to join the series is the Redmi Note 3 Pro, which is a successor to the Redmi Note 3 that was launched in November, last year. The announcement was done in China, and the device is limited to China as of now. However, there are fair chances that Xiaomi will be bringing the Redmi Note 3 Pro smartphone to India.
The Redmi Note 3 Pro (2GB RAM/ 16GB storage) variant has been priced at 999 Yuan in China, which converts to approximately Rs. 10,170 in Indian currency. The device features a 5.5-inch 1080p display in a metal body with a fingerprint sensor on the rear. It is powered by a 64-bit Hexa-Core Snapdragon 650 ( 4x 1.2GHz ARM A53 + 2 x 1.8 GHz ARM A57 ) processor. It will come in two variants, one with 2GB of RAM with 16GB internal storage, and other with 3GB of RAM with 32GB internal storage. In the imaging department, the device sports a 16-megapixel primary camera with dual-tone LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, and phase detection autofocus (PDAF), with a quick focus of just 0.1 seconds. It features a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture, and runs MIUI 7 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
In terms of connectivity, the dual-SIM device supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS+, GLONASS. It measures 150x76x8.65 mm and weighs 164 grams. Backing the Redmi Note 3 Pro is a 4,050mAh battery with fast charging support which is touted by the company to fuel up the battery up to 50% in an hour. The device will be available in Dark Grey, Silver and Champagne Gold color options.
Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi Note 3 Pro in India soon, most probably by the end of February this year. The company has launched a campaign named as “100 Explorers” for Redmi Note 3 in India. The campaign will select 100 lucky winners, who will use the device in India before the official launch. Although the campaign is for the Redmi Note 3, but there are chances that the company might bring in the Pro variant as well.
