Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 may well be revealing itself to fans in India on March 3, which happens to be tomorrow. As Xiaomi loyalists are only a couple of hours away from the official launch, let’s take a good look at the specs. The handset already saw the light of day in China, where it was released last year. It is now making its way to India.
The device is expected to show-off an all-metal chassis embedded with a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) screen, as noted by Tech Radar. As for the internals, fans may find a six-core Snapdragon 650 chipset underneath the hood. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 will also feature 2 or 3GB RAM, while the storage onboard may read out to be 16 or 32GB. It will feature a MicroSD card slot to expand on the existing memory.
One of the exciting features is the fingerprint scanner, since this happens to be the first Xiaomi phablet to boast of one. The handset will land running Android 5.1 Lollipop coupled with MIUI 7. As for the snappers, a 16MP camera sits on the rear panel while there is a 5MP front facing imager. The phablet also embeds a massive 4000mAh battery for the 16GB model and a bit bigger 4,050mAh battery for the 32GB variant.
The premium appearance of the device could be one of the reasons why fans may want to get hold of it, along with the fact that the device embeds a fingerprint scanner. The looks, a massive battery and a fingerprint scanner happen to be the only noteworthy aspects on the handset. As for the price range on the device, a report on BGR reveals that the smartphone may cost below approx. $308 (Rs.15,000). Chances are, the Redmi Note 3 may retail as an Amazon India exclusive.
