Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 launching in Singapore from 6 April

Phone announced just end of last year right after the Redmi Note 2 made it here

Xiaomi’s just announced that its Redmi Note 3 will be available this April 6. Those of you who held off buying the Redmi Note 2 will be glad to know the Redmi Note 3 looks like a better deal.

With a Snapdragon 650, 64-bit hexacore processor, 5.5in Full HD display at 401ppi, fingerprint sensor, 4,050mAh battery, dual-SIM support, 4G and microSD support for up to 32GB of storage, on paper the Redmi Note 3 seems a pretty good deal for a midrange phone.

The phone comes has an all-metal chassis with a smooth matte finish, a departure from the previous Redmi Notes’ plastic build. As for the camera, it’s 16MP in the back with a dual-tone dual-LED flash and a front 5MP camera with a notification LED. There’s a standard Micro USB port for charging as well as data transfer.

At 8.7mm, the phone is also rather slim, which gives it even more of a polished feel.

Xiaomi, however, will only be bringing in the 32GB model with 3GB of RAM that comes in either gold or grey. It will be priced at S$299.
