There’s a new Xiaomi smartphone on the block in the form of the Redmi 3 Pro. This device is nothing but the original Redmi 3 with a fingerprint scanner and some extra memory. It has been launched in China at a price of 899 RMB which translates to around $140 or Rs 9200.
The Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro has its fingerprint scanner placed on its rear surface rather than its front. One can say that this was the only thing that was lacking in the original Redmi 3, but the company has gone ahead and given it some more upgrades as well.
These include additional RAM and storage. While the earlier device offers 2GB worth of memory, the new Redmi 3 Pro comes with 3GB of RAM inside it. Moreover, it doubles up the storage from 16GB to 32GB, while of course retaining the microSD card slot.
Here’s a quick glance at the specs of the Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro:
– Display: 5-inch, 720p HD resolution
– OS: Android-based MIUI 7
– Processor: 1.5GHz octa core Snapdragon 616
– GPU: Adreno 405
– Memory: 3GB RAM, 32GB storage (expandable up to 128GB)
– Cameras: 13MP rear, 5MP front
– Battery: 4100mAh
– Dimensions: 139.3 x 69.6 x 8.5mm
– Weight: 144gms
This dual SIM 4G handset from Xiaomi kicks in a 4100mAh battery, which is contradictory to an earlier leak that had suggested that a smaller power pack will be going inside this device. Other main specifications of the Redmi 3 Pro include a 5-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 616 chipset and a 13MP main camera.
The new Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro will be made available for purchase in China on April 4, which will also mark the start of the company’s Mi Fan Festival. Let us now wait and watch when it decides to launch this device in India.
