Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro goes official with $151 price tag

The Redmi Note 3 came out rather quickly after the Redmi Note 2, and Xiaomi hasn’t wasted time in launching a Pro version of the Redmi Note 3. The Note 3 Pro is more or less similar to the regular Note 3 Pro, with a couple of upgrades thrown in.

The MediaTek chipset has been swapped out for a Snapdragon 650 (a hexa-core chip with four Cortex-A53 cores, two Cortex-A72 cores, and an Adreno 510 GPU), and the camera is now a 16-megapixel sensor. The Pro version carries the same large 4,000 mAh battery (with support for fast charging), and also the metal body of the non-Pro version. A fingerprint sensor is on-board as well, placed at the back of the device.

Other specs include 2/3GB of RAM, 16/32GB storage, dual SIM slots, LTE connectivity, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and an infrared sensor, along with a 5.5-inch Full HD display. The Note 3 Pro runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with MIUI 7, and while Xiaomi hasn’t said anything, a Marshmallow update should arrive in the coming months.

The Redmi Note 3 Pro will be sold in Dark Grey, Silver and Champagne Gold colors from January 17th in China. The 2GB RAM/16GB storage variant is priced at 999 Yuan (roughly $151), with no word on the price for the 3GB/32GB variant. Like the Redmi 3, the Redmi Note 3 Pro is priced rather attractively for the hardware on offer and should sell well in Xiaomi’s home country.
