Xiaomi has today launched the Snapdragon variant of Redmi Note 3, tailor made for India, for the price of 9,999 INR and 11,999 INR. The handset will be available on Mi.com and Amazon.in starting from 9th March at 2 PM. Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Pro) will come in three different color variants- Dark Grey, Silver and Champagne Gold.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 in India will be powered by Snapdragon 650 Hexa-Core processor, which has 4 Cortex A53 cores and 2 high performance Cortex A72 cores. We are yet to experience its might in person, but on paper, the chipset seems more than capable for heavy lifting. The chipset is coupled with 2GB or 3GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB internal storage, which can further be augmented using a SD card.
The IPS LCD display is 5.5 inches in size and bears full HD resolution. For photography, there is a 16MP rear camera with PDAF, dual-tone LED Flash, f/2.0 aperture. A 5MP front camera with wide f2.0 aperture lens will handle selfies. Redmi Note 3 comes with hybrid dual SIM which means second SIM slot can be used as a microSD card slot.
Like all previous generation Redmi Note devices, this isn’t aiming to be a slim phone either. The handset measures 8.65mm around the waist, but uses that extra room to house a juicy 4000 mAh battery. Other notable features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/b/g/n (2.4 / 5GHz), Bluetooth 4.0, GPS + GLONASS, IR blaster and a rear-mounted Fingerprint scanner.
The Redmi Note 3 is a decent offering coming from Xiaomi camp in India after a really-really long time.
