Shortly before the announcement of Xiaomi Mi5, Redmi 3 is announced and in terms of affordability and specification details, it is quite a decent smartphone if performance, and adequate battery life is what you desire. Starting off with the components that will deliver the performance bit of the handset, Xiaomi Redmi 3 has a Snapdragon 616 chipset, which shows that the smartphone will be targeting the mid-ranged smartphone levels and the processor it is packing is an octa-core Cortex-A53 running at a speed of 1.7GHz.
The screen of the phone is a 5 inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1280 x 720, which is not so bad, even though lots of users would have preferred that the resolution was bumped up to 1080p. Regardless, there is also 2GB of RAM, and a massive 4,100mAh battery present underneath Xiaomi Redmi 3, which is quite surprising seeing as how it is a 5 inch smartphone. However, that large a battery will obviously mean that the overall bulk of the phone will be significantly increased.
Moving on to other specifications, there is 16GB of storage coupled with a microSD card, along with its 13MP rear camera teamed up with a 5MP front camera. There is also space to accommodate a dual-SIM card slot, which should be very handy when you want to avoid the hassle of carrying around two phones at the same time. While these specifications are decent, what will truly matter is the price that Xiaomi Redmi 3 comes with.
For the affordable crowd, Xiaomi Redmi 3 is priced for $107 and looking at this level of affordability, we are confident that the handset is definitely going to be making its way to emerging markets. You might have to pay extra thanks to the additional shipment and duty costs, but in the end, we believe that it will be worth it.
