Although not yet available in South Africa, the Xiaomi Redmi 3 has today launched in China and can be had for 699 yuan, or around US$105. That translates to around R1800, which is extremely cheap considering this device’s internals.
The 5.0-inch screen packs a 720p panel, and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. There’s also room for a microSD card slot too if you don’t happen to need the dual SIM functionality.
There’s a 13MP camera at the rear, with a 5MP selfie snapper up front and it also packs a huge Huawei Mate 7-like 4100mAh battery.
Unfortunately, there’s no word just yet on international availability, but if you happen to be in China, the Redmi 3 will go on sale on Mi.com from 12 January.
