Xiaomi drops the Redmi Note 3 with metal and glass construction and fingerprint sensor.
There is no doubt that Xiaomi has cemented its name in the international smartphone market with a wide range of affordable and competitive product offerings. In its November 24th event, the Chinese giant has unveiled two devices - the Mi Pad 2 and the Redmi Note 3. And while we all know that the former is the beefed-up version of the existing Mi Pad tablet, the Redmi Note 3's purpose is to put sense of style to its predecessor.
For one, the Redmi Note 3 swapped the plastic body for an all metal and glass construction. This metal-clad handset took some notes from the Galaxy Note5 that has curved back panel making it easy to hold. On the front, it features the same 5.5-inch full HD display with 2.5D glass. In its heart, the smartphone is powered by a Helio X10 processor paired with a 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Likewise, there's also a choice for the 3GB RAM variant with 32GB native storage.
This 8.5-millimeter smartphone is definitely big; not just in terms of physical size but with the battery capacity of 4000 mAh.
For the camera enthusiasts, Xiaomi boasts the 13MP rear camera with dual-tone flash. The 5MP front-facing camera is also a great tool for video conferencing and social media selfies. What's more interesting about the device is the inclusion of a fingerprint sensor which will obviously support the Mi Wallet.
Of course, the handset comes with 4G connectivity for faster mobile browsing. Software-wise, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is powered by MIUI 7 which is based in Android operating system. Skip the lines and get this handset wherever you are through GearBest’s pre-sale price of USD 179.99.
