Xiaomi Redmi 3 to sport the Snapdragon 616 SoC under the hood
According to Sun, the Xiaomi Redmi 3 will feature the Snapdragon 616 chipset, carrying an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. The analyst added that the price of the Redmi 3 will be higher than many expect.
For those who need their memory to be refreshed, the rest of the specs include a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. The 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those requiring additional memory. A 13MP camera graces the back of the unit, while a 5MP camera adorns the front. A 4000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.
It should be interesting to see what Xiaomi will charge for this phone, especially in light of Sun Changxu's expectations of a high price. We will find out next Monday when Xiaomi makes this phone official.
