After the flagship Mi5 and the budget Note 3, Xiaomi lifted curtains on its next smartphone, the Redmi 3 Pro. The Redmi 3 Pro was announced in China and it stands to be a budget offering from the Chinese major.
Essentially it’s the same Redmi 3 but now with an added fingerprint scanner on its back. Xiaomi claims that the fingerprint scanner can unlock the phone within an impressive 0.3 seconds.
The Redmi 3 Pro looks exactly like the Redmi 3 with a full-metal body and curved edges except for the textured back panel which was there on the latter one.
On the hardware front, the phone sports a 5-inch 720p HD display which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616, an octa-core processor. The phone also boast 3GB of RAM and an internal storage of 32GB (Apple should certainly take cues). If 32GB isn’t enough for you, you can also expand it upto 128GB via a hybrid micro-SD card slot. The phone will run on Xiaomi’s own MIUI software.
The hardware is backed by a generous 4100 mAh battery which will easily propel the phone through a day’s worth of use.
The phone also features a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front snapper for selfies. The phone also supports 4G connectivity along with the usual Wifi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The phone has been priced at 899 Yuan which roughly translates to Rs 9100 and will be available in Black, Silver and Golden colours.
