Xiaomi have spoilt their buyers by having a fingerprint sensor on a phone from their budget range, i.e., the Redmi Note 3.
As you all know, the Redmi Note series consists of large screen phones (~5.5-inch), while the smaller phones in the budget series fall under the Redmi scheme.
Launched in January this year, the Redmi 3 doesn’t have a fingerprint sensor akin to its Note cousin. Xiaomi seem to want to set that straight.
What confirms the company’s intentions are leaked photos of the Xiaomi Redmi 3S, aka a Redmi 3 with a fingerprint scanner.
While spec and pricing will only go official during the launch (which is expected to take place on the 6th of April), TENAA gives insight into what could be the Redmi 3S.
The phone will, supposedly, feature a Snapdragon 616 processor, a 5-inch display (possible upgrade to 1080p), 2GB RAM, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, and a
4000mAh battery 3000mAh battery (which is strange, because the weight remains the same)… besides all other Redmi 3 bells and whistles.
Moving on to the alleged pricing of the phone, it’s being said that this fingerprint phone will go for 799 Yuan or $122, a slight bit over the non-fingerprint Redmi 3.
