Xiaomi has always been known for manufacturing smartphones that offer specs in a price range that is unheard of. The brand did it with Xiaomi MI3 and ever since then has been doing the same thing for a while now. It is now all set to launch the Xiaomi Redmi 3A, which would be an entry level handset with a spec sheet that is not usually found in this price range. Here is a brief overview of the handset for those who are looking for a decent entry level handset.
Snapdragon Octa-core processor: To be priced below INR 6,000 and come with one of the better processor in the market is just pure bliss. It features an Octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset with a clock speed of 1.4 GHz and with 2 GB of RAM, performance of the handset should be at par with budget handsets.
Fingerprint Scanner: This handset would be one of the first branded device to come with a 360 degree fingerprint scanner. It means that the device can recognise a fingerprint, whichever way it is placed on the scanner.
VoLTE: Xiaomi Redmi 3A is also one of the very few handsets that come with the VoLTE connectivity out of the box. This feature gives users access to HD call quality as well as instant connectivity if using VoLTE to VoLTE.
