Chinese Xiaomi fans will soon have the option to buy the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset.
New details from TENAA in China have revealed an updated version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 which has had the Mediatek Helio X10 processor replaced with a Snapdragon 808 chipset.
The details confirm this new version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 will feature the same alloy body, rear fingerprint scanner and even come in the same three colour options (gold, sliver and grey) as the current Mediatek versions.
Best of all is that TENAA lists the phone with support for WCDMA and FDD LTE network support meaning that the Snapdragon 808 version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 could be sold through resellers to international customers.
One benefit of a Qualcomm powered Redmi Note 3 might be an unlocked boot loader on the phone. Customers buying the current Mediatek version have been disappointed to realise their phones do not have an unlocked boot loader.
If you had the choice between a Mediatek or Qualcomm powered Redmi note 3 which would you choose?
