Another Note 3 Pro launched but this one isn’t from Xiaomi

Chinese companies have really embraced the terms ‘note’ and ‘pro’ in to their phone naming process, which has resulted in Chinese brand ‘Little Pepper’ launching their very own Red Pepper Note 3 Pro.

Little Pepper don’t have the international fandom of other Chinese brands, but believe it or not they are one of the reasons for Chinese phones being so popular in the first place.

Back in the early days of the Chinese phone market Little Pepper were one of the fastest growing phone brands and made international headlines with the launch of their dual core and quad-core phones. The brand have never tried to set foot in international markets so far, but hardcore Chinese phone fans should recognise the brand.

Like many other brands, Little Pepper have launched a new 5.5-inch phone with budget pricing and half decent hardware. Their phone is the Red Pepper Note 3 Pro, and features a rear fingerprint scanner, 3GB RAM, 32GB memory, 5 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear.

While it doesn’t have a Helio P10 (it runs a MT6753) and the body isn’t metal the phone still could be popular in China with a price of only 899 Yuan. The only real downgrade from the Red Pepper Note 3 Pro and similar priced phones is the battery size of just 2800mAh which is quite small these days.

Not one for International buyers, but its good to see one of the original Chinese phone innovators is still going strong.

    Speaking of old chinese brands making some slow move these days: thl is officially back, actually shipping the phones they announced back than… Do you guys think there’s still room for them in the market?

      Not online, but if they go the offline route they might still have a chance.

        Don’t know, after all they still have a name… Often on forums I see people still having old thl models as second phone, and still comparing their new phone like “this thing is far better on my 2 years old thl”… The problem here is that the market has slightly changed compared to how it was when they left, so… If they snap out of the old mentality and actually support their products… Plus if they keep their old habit to have a decent build and components’ quality… They can still make it after all

      They have a new phone coming soon the R2 Phantom, it is your standard budget phone with MT6753, 3GB etc. But this one has a built in projector.

      Siswoo and Mlais were too brands last year that seemed to be very good budget brands but both have been MIA for awhile now.

      Realjjj brings this company once in a while making sound like they are the best deal out there.
      Everytime I forget to ask him where he buys his weed. It looks like he smokes good stuff.

        Haha I often time gloss over his comments because usually it’s something about how no on uses Xiaomi or everything is overpriced blah blah blah.
