The design of the phone is a major leap ahead in the right direction for the company. Even though it may look similar to an iPhone 6S with its smooth edges and camera at the top corner of the device, it looks like a quality product. This will be a key factor in deciding the popularity of the phone. At just 8.5 mm thick, it is relatively in with the dimensions of phones in this segment.
The 5-inch screen of the Redmi 3 has a resolution of 720 p, which may not sound high in the days of 4K resolution but it is more than enough in this segment.

The Redmi 3 can be used as a dual Sim phone or the second SIM slot can be used for enhancing the 16 GB of onboard storage. Using such a provision, the total storage capacity of the device can be enhanced by another 128 GB. Sufficient power to process all the stored data is provided by the octa-core 1.5 GHz processor from Snapdragon.This coupled with 2 GB of RAM mean that the Redmi 3 is unlikely to encounter any lags. Incredibly, this phone is expected to cost only around $120 based on its launch price in the Chinese market.
