Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 smartphone in India powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor

Xiaomi announced Redmi Note 3 today, the smartphone equipped with the powerful Snapdragon 650 processor. Starting from INR 9,999, Redmi Note 3 is constructed with a metal body and comes packed with a huge 4050mAh battery. It is also Xiaomi’s first-ever smartphone with a fingerprint sensor.

Powered by Snapdragon 650 processor, the first Qualcomm Technologies’ chipset equipped with ARM’s top-end Cortex-A72 performance cores. It features the latest Qualcomm Adreno 510 GPU, which provides impressive graphics performance for an unparalleled gaming experience.

Redmi Note 3 packs a 690Wh/L high-density 4050mAh battery that is incredibly thin. As a result of an innovative internal design, Redmi Note 3 weighs just 164g and measures only 8.65mm at its thickest point.


The fingerprint sensor on Redmi Note 3 uses capacitive scanning technology for accurate, secure and fast performance, unlocking the device in just 0.3 seconds. There are a number of useful fingerprint sensor features incorporated into MIUI 7, including the ability to lock apps, access hidden folders, and even take a front or rear camera selfie using just your fingerprint.

Redmi Note 3 comes with 16MP rear camera, which has dual ISPs for more powerful post-processing of photos. It also comes equipped with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) for faster focusing, as well as “Local Tone Mapping”, which adjusts contrast at a pixel level to deliver images with much better contrast levels — close to what the eye can see in real life.

Equipped with a brilliant 5.5-inch full-HD display, it can dynamically adjusts the contrast of pixels to make content more visible under bright daylight. At night, turning on Reading mode will cut down blue light emitted by the display, which reduces eye fatigue.

Redmi Note 3 has been designed for full compatibility with India’s cellular networks, and it supports all Indian LTE bands. In particular, the support for LTE Band 5 allows users to fully utilise the Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology incorporated in Redmi Note 3, which will make it possible for HD calls to be carried over 4G, even when indoors.

Redmi Note 3 will be available exclusively on Amazon.in and Mi.com starting 9 March. The version with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage retails at INR 9,999, while the version with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage will go for INR 11,999. Starting from 4pm on 3 March, Mi fans can pre-register on the two sites for the first sale.
