Back in January, Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi 3 smartphone which came with some decent specifications at an affordable price. This phone got positive reviews from those who used it.
Xiaomi was not done with the Redmi 3 as the company went back to the drawing board and has released an updated version of the Redmi 3. The updated device, the Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro, was unveiled yesterday. The phone is similar to its predecessor with only a few new features such as the fingerprint sensor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. The Redmi 3 Pro also has an affordable price tag of $140 (approximately Ksh 14,200).
Some of the other specs you expect to find on the Redmi 3 Pro include a 5 inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Powering it is the same octa core 1.5GHz Snapdragon 616 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space.
At the back, the Redmi 3 Pro has a 13MP camera with a 5MP front facing one. This is an impressive combination you rarely find on entry level smartphone. Unfortunately, the phone comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop which is pretty old at the moment considering that Android N (Android 7.0) will be officially introduced later this year.
Some of its other specs include a 4,100 mAh battery, dual SIM support, 4G LTE support and microUSB support. It will be available in gold, silver and grey colors.
The Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro will be available as from April 4 for $140 (approximately Ksh 14,000).
