redmi note 3

Xiaomi’s just announced a new version of the Redmi Note 3. With a full metal design that’s very much reminiscent of Apple’s iPhone 6 series, it is likely one of Xiaomi’s best-looking phones to date. It is running on a MediaTek Helio X10 processor, octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 and two variants. One with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, the other with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also comes with a 4,000mAh battery, fast-charging, fingerprint sensor, 13MP rear camera with two-tone flash and 5MP front camera and is using MIUI 7. If you like slim smartphones, the Redmi Note 3 is 8.65mm thick and weighs just 164g. As to display, it has a 5.5-inch full-HD screen with Xiaomi’s own Sunlight Display tech, presumably for better outdoor visibility.

The Mi Pad 2 is Xiaomi’s first Intel-based tablet with a 7.9-inch IPS display, 8MP rear camera and 6,190mAh battery. The processor is a quad-core 2.24GHz Intel Atom, there is 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a choice of either 16GB or 64GB internal storage. It also comes in two colour variants: dark grey and champagne gold. Also included is a 5MP front camera, 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi and a USB Type-C port.


As for the Mi Air Purifier 2, it’s 40 per cent smaller than the original at 52cm tall with a base area smaller than an A4 sheet. Xiaomi claims it is 11 per cent quiet at 30dB and can fully clean the air in a 23m2 room in 10 minutes.

Pricing-wise, for the Redmi Note 3 the 2GB/16GB model is going for RMB899 ($199) and the 3GB/32GB model retailing at RMB1,099 ($243). The MiPad 2: 16GB is RMB999, the 64GB RMB1299. As for the air purifier it is RMB699 while the filter is RMB149, and the new enhanced filter is RMB169.
