Xiaomi has spent the last couple of years building a name for itself, and a large part of that has come from putting powerful specs in devices with low price points. The Xiaomi Redmi 3 is the company’s latest example of that. It offers specs such as a 5-inch 720p display and octa-core Snapdragon processor for the equivalent of just over $100 USD.
Diving into the specs, you’ll find a 5-inch 720p display, octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage plus a microSD card slot, 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 4100mAh battery with fast charging capability and dual-SIM card slots, though one of them doubles as the microSD card port. On the software side, the Redmi 3 runs MIUI 7, though the base Android version is unclear.
All of that comes at a price of just RMB 699, or about $106 USD. That price gives the Redmi 3 far more bang for your buck than nearly any other smartphone. The downside of the matter is that, for now, Xiaomi is only launching the Redmi 3 in China. Nonetheless, we’ll be sure to keep you informed if the company decides to expand availability to other countries as well.
