It has not even been since the launch of Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and the phone is already being offered at a discounted price in China. Interestingly, the device is yet to make its way to other markets.
The 6GB RAM+128GB ROM model of Mi Note 3 was launched at 2,899 Yuan (approximately Rs. 28,500). The phone is also listed with this price tag on Xiaomi's official website. However, a third-party retailer website named Sundan is giving a discount and selling the device at 2,699 Yuan (approximately Rs. 26,600). The discount is applicable for both the Blue and Bright Blue variants of the Mi Note 3.
The 64GB ROM model's price, however, has not been slashed. The reason behind the sudden price reduction of Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is not known. Most likely, it is just a marketing strategy taken up by Chinese firm.
To recall, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 comes with a 5.5-inch display with the resolution density of 1080p. Under the hood, it makes use of an octa-core Snapdragon 660 chipset which is clubbed with 6GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options.
Running on MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat OS, this smartphone gets the power from a 3,500mAh battery with support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology.
The device features a front-facing fingerprint sensor that is embedded into the home button, and connectivity aspects such as 4G LTE and NFC.
As for cameras, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 flaunts two 12MP rear cameras combined with 2x optical zoom and 4-axis OIS. The rear camera offers with DSLR-like Bokeh effect, Portrait mode, high quality photos even from a distance, and optimized low-light photography.
Up front, there is an 8MP selfie camera as well with Adaptable AI Beautify and facial recognition unlocking.
