Xiaomi is still seen as a Start-Up Company in the Tech industry but it’s already made some serious changes and has just upped the game in the low-cost Smartphone market particularly in the Asian Market. Recently many other companies like OnePlus, Meizu, etc. from China are also started to enter the low cost Smartphone segment by launching some devices but Xiaomi has introduced the Mi Redmi Note 3 and just shown why it’s taking over the low-cost Smartphone segment. The Redmi Note 3 is full of surprises and we can’t take our eyes off it with its full metal body design, Fingerprint Scanner and many more.

Redmi Note 3 boasts with some unique specs and an excellent upgrade with premium design, fingerprint scanner and a large battery. Redmi Note 3 comes with Full HD display with a 403ppi and Xiaomi calls it as “Sunlight Display” which tunes the level of contrast and brightness levels of individual pixels which improves the visibility in broad day light.
Coming to the processor, the Company placed an octa-core Helio X10 Flagship Processor from MediaTek Company, 2GB of RAM with either 16 or 32GB of internal Storage. The good thing and bad thing about this beast Redmi Note 3 is that, it comes with Infrared Sensor and misses the external SD card support. The Redmi Note 3 comes with massive 4000mAh Battery with Fast Charging support. In the camera department, there is a usual 13MP rear camera with PDAF 0.1s ultra-fast focusing and a Two-tone flash. On the front end, it has 5MP camera and comes with 36 smart beauty profiles. The fingerprint sensor on the back of Redmi Note 3 unlocks the device in just a 0.3 second which is pretty impressive. The Redmi Note 3 body features a full metallic construction which feels pretty premium but made the top and bottom caps with plastic for better signal receiving. It supports Dual SIM and both the SIM slots support 4G which is impressive at that price point. Out of the box Redmi Note 3 comes with MIUI 7 latest Operating System.
Redmi Note 3 just weighs 164g and 8.65mm thin which is great for a metal body, huge battery, and low price tag. Coming to the availability, the Smartphone will be available in gold, silver and dark grey with 16/32GB of storage options at CNY 899 ($140) and CNY 1,099 ($170).
