Description

Up front, we have a 5.5-inch 1080p display, laminated with Gorilla Glass; right beneath it, one can find a 2.0GHz Helio X10 MediaTek chipset paired with either 2 or 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. The former version comes with 16GB of native storage, while the 3GB one has 32 gigs right out of the box. At the back of the Redmi Note 3, there's a 13MP camera with phase detection autofocus as well as the another highlight of the device - its large, 4,000mAh battery. The Redmi Note 3 is also the first Xiaomi device to come with a fingerprint scanner.

  • 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.

    • 401 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.
