Xiaomi shows off all-metal Redmi Note 3 and Mi Pad 2 Giant Chinese smartphone OEM Xiaomi has launched their first all-metal devices this week, the Redmi Note 3 and the Mi Pad 2.
The Note has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, runs on the MIUI 7 operating system and is powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 processor and 2GB RAM. The phone has dual cameras (13MP/5MP), has dual-SIM support, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage and a huge 4000 mAh battery. Additionally, the phone has a fingerprint scanner.

For the 16GB model, Xiaomi has priced the device at RMB 899 ($140) and the 32GB model with 3GB RAM will set you back RMB 1,099 ($172).

Second, the company revealed their 7.9-inch Mi Pad 2 tablet, a device which promises to be much thinner and lighter than its predecessor at 6.95mm and 322g.

The Mi Pad 2 has an Intel Atom quad-core 2.24GHz processor and 2GB RAM to power the 20481536 pixel display. The device has a gigantic 6,190mAh battery, dual cameras, and a USB-C port. Interestingly, the device has a reading mode that specifically cuts down on blue light to avoid eye strain.



Priced to perfection, the 16GB model will sell for RMB 999 ($156) and the 64GB version will cost RMB 1,299 ($203).

Both devices go on sale in China on November 27th, but don't expect them in the U.S.
