The Redmi Note 3 comes with some much improved specs compared to the original version launched in China. To get started, you get a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD display, with a pixel density of ~403 PPI. Xiaomi is launching the Redmi Note 3 in India with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and MIUI 7. MIUI 7 update based on Marshmallow is already in the works, so it would be a fair guess to say that the Redmi Note 3 will get it soon.
The Redmi Note 3 was launched in China last year, but it was powered by a MediaTek processor. Xiaomi has released the Indian version with a Snapdragon 650 processor due to the ongoing court battle with Ericsson in India. Unlike the Chinese version it has a 16 MP camera on the back and a 5 MP camera on the front, whereas the MediaTek version comes with a 13 MP camera. Xiaomi has also included a microSD card slot this time; it comes with a hybrid SIM slot which means you can either use it for second SIM or a microSD card.
Other than that, the Redmi Note 3 comes with a huge 4050 mAh battery along with Quick Charge support. Dual SIM dual LTE support, microSD card support and two versions with 16 GB storage and 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage with 3 GB RAM round off the specs of the Redmi Note 3 very well.
