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.
