Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Crushes Phones Twice Its Price

It seems that if you’re looking to buy a new phone on a budget, soon you won’t even consider a non-Chinese brand. Because the latest Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 comes with great specs at an even attractive price.

Presenting the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3

The phone comes with a metal finish, large display, blazing processor and a fingerprint scanner. The front boasts a massive 5.5” display with 1080p resolution. The build is done with aluminum, which is just 8.65 mm thick at thickest point, and weighs 164g.

Under the hood, you get the new MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core processor, along with two combinations of RAM and storage:

  • 2 GB RAM with 16 GB storage, or
  • 3 GB with 32 GB storage

At the back is a 13-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording, HDR mode and a dual-tone flash. It also boasts face detection and autofocus. The front packs a 1080p 5 MP camera. The back also holds a fingerprint scanner, which is claimed to unlock phone in 0.3 seconds.

Connectivity options are well-rounded with Wi-Fi ac, GPS, Bluetooth LE and USB-OTG.

The phone will start at an incredible $140 for the 16 GB model, or $172 for the 32 GB one with 3 GB RAM. Given prices hardly remain the same outside China, this is still half the price which we’ve come to expect for a phone like this. It will be available in Gold, Silver and Gray.

  • Kudos to Xiaomi team, the price and specification looks almost identical to LeTV 1s phone. unfortunately we won’t be able to get it at the same price in Pakistan.

    • They’re pretty popular around the world for the same reason: quality products at an affordable price.

  • ProPakistani did its job with a Quack which echoed. Pakistan’s bilateral trade agreement with China’s FTA/PTA for Import of Chinese stuff should be sold @ $140-00 with the Xiaomi’s IOT of health and sleep App. based device. Suggested just now to Chair Xiaomi for the Middle East region. If Xiaomi of China would want to gain foot hold of the biggest market, encompassing Huawei which is ahead of Xiaomi. Our region will give Xiaomi a major market? How many would want to buy if this is the price.

  • Not sure how they can fit so many goodies in that price package… Either companies like Samsung, LG, Sony are ripping us off big time or there is something fishy going on in these Chinese phones…

  • I have lived in China for 5 years so I know they are well ahead of Pakistanis. But stupid Pakistan import every sh*t from China and blame Chinese instead of importer. Yes everyone wants to leave this country that’s true but other country isn’t your own country too.

  • I have bought this Phone from Aliexpress. It costed me 25,000 approx including custom duties. Regarding the phone, its an amazing gadget in this price range. Very fast speed, no lagging at all.
