This 5.2-inch premium Android handset has an all-metal design and uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC, next to 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, all for less than $110 USD.

Xiaomi Redmi 3 has been in the rumor mill for months and now it has finally been unveiled. Although it is different from the full metal Redmi Note 3, this handset offers a lot for its price, especially in terms of looks. Before anything else, the Redmi 3 has an all-metal design and a very generous power pack.

Xiaomi Redmi 3 sports the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 SoC with Adreno 405 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP with f/2.0 and phase detection autofocus on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, dual SIM dual standby, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, micro USB
  • Operating system: Android-based MIUI 7
  • Battery: 4100 mAh (nonremovable)
  • Colors: gold, silver, gray

For now, this handset is only available in China, for roughly $107 USD. Since Xiaomi has decided to take the US market seriously, we should see the Redmi 3 reaching it later this year as well. We will get back to it as soon as that happens.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
