Few days after launching the Redmi Note 3 smartphone, Xiaomi has unveiled a new variant of the new smartphone named Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro.

The main difference between the smartphones is that the Pro variant is powered by a Qualcomm SoC instead of a MediaTek processor.

The device sports a slim all-metal body with a 5.5-inch full-HD IPS display in a 1080×1920 pixel resolution. It comes running Android’s Lollipop operating system with MIUI 7 on top.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro is powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor and will be available in two variants, one with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage and second, 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.

The new smartphone is equipped with a 16MP rear camera accompanied with two-tone flash. There’s also a 5MP front camera on board for selfie lovers.

Connectivity options on the phone include 4G LTE, 3G, Bluetooth, GPRS/EDGE, GPS, Glonass, WiFi and microUSB. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro packs a powerful 4000mAh battery which the company disappointingly said can be charged up to 50 percent in one hour.

The device will go on sale in China starting January 17 via the official website, at a price of CNY 999 (that’s about 30,000 Naira) for the 2GB RAM/16GB internal storage variant. Pricing details about the 3GB RAM/32GB internal storage variant has not been released.

Xiaomi added that the Redmi Note 3 Pro will be available in Dark grey, Champagne gold and silver colour options.

Other reports say Xiaomi is all set to bring the Redmi Note 3 to India. The company, on its official Facebook page announced the ‘exciting news’ of the launch. The company mentioned that it has Mi bands as giveaways.

Xiaomi India Chief Manu Jain also tweeted about the opportunity of being the first 100 Note 3 Explorers. The company is seeking 100 Explorers, which means 100 users, will get to lay their hands on the device, before it is officially launched in India.
