Xiaomi launches Mi 3 in India; device to be Flipkart exclusive
posted by Alan F. / Jul 15, 2014, 4:18 AM
The Xiaomi Mi 3 is the manufacturer's flagship handset, offering a 5 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. A quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU is under the hood, along with the Adreno 330 GPU. In other words, this is far removed from one of the lower priced models that Xiaomi sells via the use of Hunger Marketing. That is when a small number of low priced units are sold, usually selling out within seconds.
Returning to the Xiaomi Mi 3, you will find 2GB of RAM on board, with 16GB of native storage available. The back camera is a 13MP snapper with an aperture of f/2.2. That should be wide enough to get some decent pictures taken, under low-light conditions. The front-facing camera weighs in at 2MP. The 3050mAh cell should keep the lights on, and Android 4.3 is pre-installed, along with MIUI 5.
Other Xiaomi products coming to India later this year are the Xiaomi MiPad, a tablet that just launched in China a couple of months ago. The 7.9 inch slate is the first on the planet to be powered by the NVIDIA Tegra K1 chip. Also expected to come to the country is the Xiaomi Redmi Note, a value priced phablet, and the low-end Xiaomi Redmi 1S. No dates were announced for the launch of those models in India.

Approximately $233 for this specs phone. Isn't it amazing? I think it could create fastest selling records in India too.

Just logged in after long time to post this. Xiaomi is selling Mi 3 which has same specs as nexus 5 for half the price. Nexus 5 is selling for Rs 28K. Mi 3 has much larger battery compared to nexus 5 which is very important spec in my opinion. Mi 3 priced same as Moto G which is a huge hit in India. Funny thing is Mi 3 has much better specs in every other way. Good thing is they are going with flipkart instead of selling themselves on their own site. Indians are wary of trusting new company. Now they feel much better. They are also starting service centers in many cities which is very important. Redmi 1s has same specs as Moto G but they are selling for the price of Moto E (Rs 7K). Xiaomi entry not only hurt Moto E/G it also hurts Samsung, HTC, Nokia, Sony, LG, Micromax, Xolo etc.. even more badly. Only worry is about the stocks. India is a much bigger country and they need to have huge stocks in the pipeline.

You guys might want to ditch the Mi3's charger, provided USB cable has a diminutive 450 maH charging current (waaaay below the ideal 1000mah) which means, it will take you FOREVER to charge Do not use it...Use a SAMSUNG cable / charger instead, it charges much faster Aside from the dim/warm screen, that is my only gripe......loving this phone BTW
