Mi launches Redmi Note 3 - 'India's Most Powerful Smartphone' at Rs. 9999
Advertisement"This is the most powerful smartphone in India" Mi Vice President Hugo Barra said at today's Mi Redmi Note 3 event. The crowd, mostly Mi fans, journalists and nerds went nuts. Why won't they, it packs a big punch at Rs. 9999.
Barra claimed the Note 3 performs better than best-selling Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 phones like Moto X Style or Nexus 5X, and popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 stalwarts like Nexus 6P and One Plus 2.
The company claims you can enjoy over 7 hrs of uninterrupted gaming while the Nexus 5X drains out in 4.2 hrs, Nexus 6P in 4.1 hrs and Moto X Style in 2.2 hrs. Barra also revealed some interesting numbers - you can click 4510 photos or use GPS for 4 kms while draining only 7% battery.
The phone upports 5V 2A charging that charges 50% in just an hour. It's reading mode eliminates blue light. That way your eyes don't tire out, and you sleep better. The phone now natively supports 13 indic languages. You also get to use it as an infrared remote for your Television, Air Conditioner, Set top box, and even your DSLR.
The most interesting feature is that the fingerprint sensor can be used to click selfies or from the rear camera. The piece-de-resistance though is that the fingerprint sensor accepts even your lips. Yeah, your lips. Creepy, but cool.
It's hilarious. Here's a GIF from the event!
