Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was launched a few days back in China alongside the Mi Pad 2. The metal clad mid-range phablet is now available for global pre-orders via Chinese resellers.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 packs near same internals as the previously launched Redmi Note 2. The notable difference however lies in the presence of a metal body, fingerprint sensor and larger battery.
The Redmi Note 3 sports a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080p) display upfront along with a 5MP selfie snapper. Under the hood the Note 3 is powered by a Mediatek Helio X10 SoC (2.2GHz x 8 Cortex A53 cores) and 3GB of RAM.
The back of the metal clad phablet sports a 13MP rear camera with PDAF (Phase Detection Autofocus Sensor) and Fingerprint Sensor. To power the octa core phablet is a large 4000mAh battery - marked improvement from the 3000mAh unit found in the Note 2.
