Xiaomi has introduced quite a few smartphones last year, but they did not announce the Mi 5 flagship. That handset will be unveiled in only two days both in Beijing and Barcelona, and while we wait for that to happen, we do have some new India-related Xiaomi news to share with you. This China-based smartphone manufacturer has introduced a rather compelling mid-ranger last month, the Redmi Note 3 Pro. We did not have any news regarding its availability in India thus far, but the company has now finally released some info about it, read on.
Xiaomi has confirmed that the Redmi Note 3 Pro will be released in India on March 3rd as the Redmi Note 3, just in case you’re interested in the device. The Redmi Note 3 (Pro) features a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) IPS display, along with 2GB / 3GB of RAM and 16GB / 32GB of internal storage. The 2GB RAM model ships with 16GB of native storage, and the more expensive 3GB RAM variant comes with 32GB of native storage. This smartphone is fueled by the Snapdragon 650 64-bit hexa-core SoC, along with an Adreno 510 GPU for graphics. The 16-megapixel shooter (PDAF, f/2.0 aperture) is placed on the back of this phone, along with a dual-LED, dual tone flash. The 5-megapixel snapper can be found up front, and a 4,000mAh battery is placed on the inside as well. The phone comes equipped with an infrared sensor, and there are also two SIM card slots available here. Android Lollipop comes out of the box, and on top of it, you’ll find Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI 7 OS. The device measures 150 x 76 x 8.65mm, while it weighs 164 grams.
Now, this device has originally been announced in Dark Grey, Silver and Champagne Gold color variants, and all those variants will probably going to be available in India as well. The phone is priced at 999 Yuan ($153) in China, and it is probably going to sport a similar price in India, though it will almost certainly going to be a bit more expensive than that. Xiaomi will introduce the device in New Delhi at 4:30 PM (India time) on March 3rd. In case you’re interested, you can register for the event if you follow the source link down below.
