Xiaomi officially launched the flagship Mi Note Pro in China for the equivalent of $480, cheaper than the price that was announced back in January.

While most of Xiaomi’s devices offer a compromise between good specs and an affordable price, the Mi Note and especially the souped up Mi Note Pro are unabashed flagship phones that can go head to head with the best devices out there.

The Mi Note Pro features a Quad HD LCD display of 5.7-inch, a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 13MP camera, a 3090 mAh battery, and LTE category 9. Added features like Sunlight Display technology, which adapts the screen contrast to the scene, Quick Charge 2.0, and hardware optimized HiFi audio complete the image of a no-compromise device. And the Mi Note Pro looks stunning too, with 2.5D glass on the front, curved glass on the back and a smooth metal frame.

It’s also a lot cheaper than competitors from more established brands, like Samsung, so the Note Pro will probably be another fast selling hit for Xiaomi.

No word on the availability of the Mi Note Pro in other countries. Xiaomi currently sales its products in China, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and India.
