Xiaomi has been doing great in terms of managing the internal space and design of the device, providing users with great battery backup and not making the device heavy as well as thick at the same time.
The smartphone has a thickness of 8.45 mm which is not too much considering the battery size of the Redmi 3 Pro.
Xiaomi has yet not commented on availability of the smartphone outside of China.
Xiaomi in India currently have the Redmi Note 3 priced at Rs. 9999 and 11,999 for the 16 GB and 32 GB variant may not launch the Redmi Note 3 Pro in India as they did with the Redmi Note 3.
Xiaomi also have the Mi4i and Xiaomi Redmi Note Prime smartphone in the price range of 8K to 10K and will clutter their portfolio with another launch.
Either way Xiaomi is yet struggling to provide the already launched Redmi Note 3 in India and there is acute shortage of 32 GB/ 3GB Ram version.
