Xiaomi Redmi 3 officially announced with 5-inch HD screen and 4100mAh battery
The Xiaomi Redmi 3 is now official after being unveiled Monday morning in China. The handset is equipped with a 5-inch screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 616 SoC, featuring an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. If additional memory is required, a 128GB capacity microSD slot is available. You will find it inside the hybrid Dual SIM slot.

The 13MP rear-facing camera includes an aperture of f/2.0 and PDAF, which allows the camera to focus in just 0.1 second. A 5MP front-facing snapper takes selfies and handles video chats. The 4100mAh battery increases talk time on the phone by 80% over the model's predecessor. Other optimization extends the battery life of the handset by 25%. There is also support for 5V/2A fast charging. The phone is 8.5mm thick and weighs in at 144 grams.

The metal-clad Xiaomi Redmi 3 will be available in three colors starting tomorrow. You can buy the device for RMB 699 ($106.89 USD) from Mi.com or Tmall.

16gb won't do. Even if there is sd card. The dual sim is useless if you'll use an sd card. I don't understand why they don't put a separate tray for the sd card.

SD 616 on a HD display will be super smooth. And the added battery capacity is just the icing on the cake..

This phone looks really promising. As a user of International version of Redmi 1S, I can definitely say that, it will be the best choise in the price range. However, they must follow the craftmanship they applied on previous iterations.

Are you OK guys? This Device has a * 4100 mAh Battery * 13MP / 5MP Camera * Dual SIM * Full Metal Body and 5'' Great Screen and you guys says price is good - i hope its come to my country - hope launch in my country - cant wait - 499 RMB is 75 Dollars - 899 RMB is 135 Dollars * and This Device is 699 RMB is 105 dollars* Chinese Manufacturers Paying Worthless Salary - Money to Their Worker at Factory.. Then teasing with this price.. OK Xiaomi... I , we like your price policy because we love our money dont want to lose but this is unacceptable.. If This device was 1000 [151.$] - 1200 [181.$] - 1500 [220.$] RMB.. It is cheap and worth for this device still.. Everyone can buy it also If this price 699 RMB is good enough profit for your Company then now think about your workers.. Sell it from 1000 - 1200 RMB to market and give your workers to premiums, increase your workes salaries.. Please Think About It.. It is Worth.. It is Worth to Think About Human.. Give value to Human Mrs.Barra Sorry for Bad English..

What I want to know is the type of screen panel used in this baby. IPS or TN ? The spec doesn't mention IPS. Only 720x1280 HD. TN panel will kill the deal for me
