Xiaomi is becoming one of the largest brands internationally and its like pretty soon they will be in the top list of biggest smartphone manufacturers. Xiaomi Redmi 3 is completely insane phone which was released few hours back in India and comes with some great specs for roughly 200$! Though, in between their were few hickups the brand crossed which led them back and it seems they are back on track once more!
The Redmi Note 3 is an extension of a growing effort by Xiaomi to focus on design and produce beautiful looking phones. This device comes with a full-metal unibody design, with a 5.5-inch 1080p display with pixel density of 403 ppi adorning the front of the phone. It will be available in silver, gold, and gray color options.
The Redmi Note 3 is powered by a Snapdragon 650 SoC that comes with an Adreno 510 GPU. The phablet will come in two variants of 16GB storage with 2GB of RAM, and 32GB storage with 3GB of RAM. Both variants will come packing a non-removable 4,050mAh battery to keep them going through the day.
Coming to the camera, both the variants are equipped with a 16MP rear unit with f/2.0, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash and a 5MP front shooter. The Redmi Note 3 also brings with it a fingerprint scanner that can be used to click pictures with both the front and the back camera.
On the connectivity front, the phone comes with dual sim connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Bluetooth v4.1, A2DP, LE, VoLTE and supports fast battery charging tech. It also runs Android 5.1.1 Lolipop with MIUI 7 skin out of the box. The device with its infrared sensor can also be used as a universal remote for devices in your home.
The pricing of the phone is pretty competitive and for all the impressive under the hood specs the price point of Rs 9,999(160$) for 2GB/16GB variant and the Rs 11,999(190$) for the 3GB/32GB variant is indeed a blockbuster. The phone will go on sale starting 9th march 2 PM in its first flash sale on Amazon, but will later be expanded to offline and other online partners.
As I said earlier, these new phones from Xiaomi are complete insane and the specs they pack is really awesome. Also the hardware quality is much better than the previous gen phones from Xiaomi and they have impressively improved over the times! Good Job Xiaomi 🙂
