The Mi3 has already been officially announced for the Indian market but looks like it won’t be the only smartphone from Xiaomi to launch on 15th July. Xiaomi is teasing 2 more smartphones on its website. As per our guesses, those two devices would be the Redmi Note and Redmi 1S. These are mid-range phablets with slightly less powerful hardware internals.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note comes with a 5.5 inch HD display, octa-core MediaTek MT6592 processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 13MP primary camera, 5MP front camera and a 3100 mAh battery. The Redmi 1S on the other hand comes with a 4.7 inch HD screen, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, microSD card slot, 8MP primary camera, 1.6MP front camera and a 2000 mAh battery.
Both the devices can record full HD 1080p videos and come with 3G connectivity. Note that the Redmi Note comes with dual SIM card slots. Xiaomi has launched the Mi3 at unbelievably low price. If they price the Redmi Note and Redmi 1S accordingly, it could spell doom for other brands.
