The amount of RAM in a smartphone seems to be the new feature over which various OEMs are now competing. At the moment there aren’t so many devices out there with such a big amount, but Xiaomi wants to make sure it is in the leading pack. The Chinese company had announced back in January the Mi Note Pro phablet and now the device has finally been unveiled at a media event in Beijing.
As expected, the handset sports some really appealing specs and features, hence its local price of CNY 2999 (approximately Rs. 30,760 or $483). It will go on sale in China from May 12, but at the moment we don’t know other details regarding its rollout out to other markets, but most likely India is going to be among the first to get it. So, let’s have a look at the rich specs sheet that it boasts with:
- 3D curved glass on the back, 2.5D curved glass on front
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit 8-core CPU, Adreno 430 GPU

Along with the new device, the company also unveiled the lightweight 150-gram Mi Selfie Stick, which is priced at CNY 49 ($8).
