Besides the unique ultra-slim bezel design, the Mi Note Pro comes equipped with a 5.7-inch 2K Sharp JDI display with 515ppi and offers Sunlight Display technology. Xiaomi has really gone a notch higher in the camera department, featuring a 13-megapixel rear-facing f/2.0 lens camera with Qualcomm's 14-bit image processor, Optical Image Stabilization and DSLR like focus indicator, auto-leveling, colour temperature adjustment and more, VP of Xiaomi Global, Hugo Barra revealed in a detailed Facebook post. In the front side of the device, Mi Note Pro packs a 4MP camera that can capture great photos even in low-light, company claims.
Barra further detailed the Mi Note Pro's capabilities against the likes of HTC One M9 and LG G Flex 2 in benchmarking terms. According to him, the Xiaomi phablet scored an incredible 63,424 on AnTuTu while HTC and LG handsets trailed behind with 57,648 and 56,266.

Xiaomi launched Mi Note Pro in China for CNY 3299 (approximately Rs. 32,900). Given the specs, the handset's pricing matches company's efficient standards. There is no information on whether Xiaomi will bring its Mi Note Pro to other markets such as India, where Mi products have secured great success. But it is safe to assume that Xiaomi will launch its new device in international markets upon success in home market.
