The Xiaomi Mi Note has already been available in the market a few months now, but the high-end variant powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor was left behind. Lei Jun, the CEO of Xiaomi, announced today that the company has a date to start accepting pre-orders for the handset.
Starting on May 6, the Mi Note Pro can be pre-ordered for 3299 Yuan (or $532). It’s still unclear if orders placed then will ship immediately or not. That said, at least you will be able to order one, after many months of waiting.
The Mi Note Pro looks just like the Mi Note on the outside, but it’s got higher-end internals. It comes with a 5.7-inch QHD touchscreen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and it’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC, which brings with it support for Cat.9 LTE (with 450Mbps peak downloads).
The rear camera is 13MP with optical image stabilization (OIS) and the front-facer is ultrapixel. All of this is encased in a metal and glass design.
