Description

The Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro, a slightly improved variation of the affordable Redmi 3. Design-wise, it's the same as the regular Redmi 3 though it doesn't seem to sport the interesting star-like pattern. Hardware-wise, there are pretty few differences. There is 1 more gigabyte of RAM added for good measure, as well as a fingerprint reader at the back, and that's pretty much it! The Redmi 3 Pro arrives with the same 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 616 chipset, which has one cluster running of Cortex-A53 cores running at up to 1.5GHz and the other one at 1.2GHz max.

  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 294 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
