Redmi 3 will pack 2GB of RAM to go with 16GB internal memory and an additional expandable option with it. We just have the back view of the device as was sent through on Chinese social network Weibo. A 5-inch display would be on offer and looking at the image it’s all metal, a metal unibody design. If the specifications as per listing on TENNA are to be believed it has 1280 x 720p 5-inch display and an octa-core processor. It should be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 616 SoC and will offer snappy performance and user experience. The camera department like always would be taken care by Xiaomi quite gracefully with 13-megapixel shooter paired with a 5-megapixel front facing shooter.

UI could well be out of the box MIUI 7.1 on top of Android Lollipop 5.1.1 to give that revolutionary look and feel. It will possibly come up with 4,000mAh which is usually good enough to keep the phone up and running as for medium to heavy usage. This Dual sim 4g LTE phone with dual standby support is expected to cost your pocket around 699 Yuan in China which comes out to be 7200 INR, it’s an excellent bargain at the given price and could well be the new favorite under this range. So let’s wait for this exciting prospect coming up from MI.
