In recent months, Xiaomi has gotten busy with the Redmi Note 2 launch in Malaysia and the announcement of the Redmi Note 3 in China. Now, it seems like the company will be adding another device to the Redmi lineup, and it could very well be the Redmi 3.
The device was first spotted on China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center MIIT, also known as TENAA. Given the model number “Mi 2015811”, this certification is what most people believe to be the successor to the Redmi 2.
Not to be mistaken with the Redmi Note 3, this rumoured device features a 5-inch 720p display and runs on an octa-core 1.5GHz processor paired with 2GB of RAM. It supposedly has 16GB of internal storage with memory expansion support of up to 32GB via a microSD card slot. In the camera department, the device will sport a 5MP front camera and a 13MP camera on the back.
According to the listing, the supposed Redmi 3 is also said to be available in three colour options – silver, gold, and gray. The smartphone weighs 143 grams and measures 8.5mm thick. The device seems to have a full metal unibody design, with the logo on the bottom back, and the physical buttons all located on the right side.
What we’re seeing now are only images of the alleged Redmi 3 from TENAA’s certification, and only time will tell when Xiaomi will officially announce the device.
