Xiaomi has reportedly sold a total of 600,000 unit of the mid-range Redmi Note 3 smartphone in India, within 60 days of its debut.
Xiaomi’s VP Hugo Barra announced this feat via a Facebook post describing this achievement as their biggest record yet. The Redmi Note 3 hit the store shelves in March. Even though, there are multiple variants of this device available, India apparently got the model with Snapdragon 650 onboard.
Interested buyers in the U.S. can also purchase the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 via the prominent third-party vendor “Geek Buying.” This device is now available at a discounted price of $209.99. The portal offers free shipping service to the U.S. customers. However, it’s worth noting that this Note 3 model comes powered by a 64bit, octa-core Helio X10 processor.
Speaking of key specifications, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 carries a 5.5-inch display, complemented by 1,920 x 1,080 pixels resolution. This handset comes backed by either 3 GB or 2 GB of RAM configuration depending on the internal storage capacity and color combination.
The available built-in storage options are 32 GB and 16 GB. But then, there is no microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. This phone can now be availed in Gray, Gold and Silver hues.
From the software end, Android 5.0 Lollipop-based custom MIUI 7 runs the Note 3. Camera-wise, the Redmi Note 3 sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing snapper and a 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies.
The stand-out feature of this mid-range smartphone is the phenomenal battery unit. A whopping 4,000 mAh battery cell powers this handset. Plus, the Redmi Note 3 is a dual-SIM handset.
Potential buyers should, however, note that this discounted Xiaomi phone comes with a foreign charger. But then, vendor Geek Buying assures that depending on which country the order comes from — a suitable AC adapter will be added to the device bundle.
