Xiaomi unveiled Redmi Note 3 and Mi Pad 2 some months ago but without any disconsideration, Xiaomi launched the Redmi 3 which lacked fingerprint sensor. So if you’re looking for difference between Redmi 3 and its new variant Redmi 3 Pro, in a nutshell the RAM has been upgraded and the fingerprint sensor is now available as mentioned earlier.
This variant which is regarded as “Pro” to its Redmi 3 comes packed with a 5 inch display of 720×1280 pixels resolution. The device is dual sim and powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor with upgraded 3GB RAM including 32GB of internal storage. It also allows you to expand the storage upto 128GB via microSD card. The device runs on MiUi 7 and is backed by a 4100 mAh battery.
Coming to camera, Redmi 3 Pro clicks rear photos with its primary 13 megapixel camera, not to forget that it includes LED flash and autofocus phase detection. The front camera is a 5 megapixel one.
As per the thread on miui forum Hugo said, “If we were to stick with our philosophy of trying to bring our products to India as soon as possible, then perhaps it is best to just focus on one device for now, and kind of not bring the device even later because at that point it may not be (as relevant). Of course, we are going to be refreshing it with (new) processors, so on and so forth. So there may be an opportunity later to maybe bring a newer version of that product”.
