4 new Xiaomi Redmi 3 models turn up at TENAA

xiaomi redmi 3

The Xiaomi Redmi 3 has spawned 4 new variant according to today’s listings on TENAA. Here are the details of all 4.

It wasn’t long ago when the Xiaomi Redmi 3 launched. The Redmi 3 brought the all new metal body of the Note 3 in a smaller and more affordable package. But new versions of the phone have now emerged with upgrades from a fingerprint scanner on the rear, to a larger battery and more RAM.

The 4 phones are currently only known by their code names (2015810, 2015817,2015818 and 2015819) but we assume that Xiaomi will give the phones names like Xiaomi Redmi 3A, 3 Pro etc.

Specifications of each model can be seen in the comparison table below:

2015810 2015817 2015818 2015819
1.5GHz eight-core processor
500-megapixel front camera +1300 megapixel main camera
4000mAh battery 3000mAh battery 4000mAh battery 4000mAh battery
Dual card dual standby Netcom Full Netcom dual card dual standby Dual card dual standby Netcom Full Netcom dual card dual standby
No pattern or fingerprint scanner Plaid stars pattern, fingerprint recognition Plaid stars pattern, fingerprint recognition Plaid stars pattern, fingerprint recognition

Going through the specs the Xiaomi Redmi 3 2015817 would be the phone that power users might want to take a look at as it gets a fingerprint scanner, 3GB RAM and 32GB memory. Budget shoppers would probably opt for the Xiaomi Redmi 3 2015810 which only has 2GB RAM, no fingerprint scanner and a 4000mAh battery.

    Different features to target different customers while keeping the lowest price possible.
    I think this is the logic behind it.

    It reminds me the “build your own…” We have seen in the past, especially when people use to build their assembled PC picking each specific component to save money on unwanted things and put more money into needed things.

    Not a bad idea overall… They should make a “build your own phone” where you can pick storage, Ram, display, features.. (Dual sim, fingerprint scanner, metal body, bigger battery…)

      In my oipinion, they keep staying behind the “build your own…” idea for as long as they don’t offer an option of better camera for few bobs extra.
      I don’t need my phone to be very fast, or fancy. I’d like to see a better cam in it, even if I need to add substantial (as for the budget range) amount of money. They just don’t seem to give me that option.
      I agree that picking from so many devices wil become confiusing.

        A good camera on a super budget phone like the Redmi is going to be hard also because that would kill the sales of the midranger (MI4C, MI4S)

          I know – it’s just my wishful thinking.
          Mi4c is still an overkill for my needs, but it looks like I will eventually end up with something like this model.

          To be honest – good camera and P10 SoC and 32GB, or16GB+SDslot sounds just like it, but no one wants to do that in 5-in yet. It doesn’t have to be super budget – I’m ok with the 180-220$ pice range. I keep waiting.

            If you’re willing to go 5.5″ then you might have more choices.
            Somehow 5″ are getting forgotten.
            Big mistake in my opinion

            I feel you, I do have the same problem chosing a phone. I am not a fan of 5.5″ phones but am considering the Note 3 Pro. If the price of Mi4c will fall in coming weeks I might be tempted. The Redmi 3 or MI4S with SD650 would have been a killer phone IMO. There are too few choices out there and like you I don’t want to spend a lot of cash into it.

    Hummm… Not really interested,,,

    For some reason and even when I already have a very decent device at hand, I do not find many gizmos appealing not even the smart watches and even less the drones and such…

    I do like, for instance, news about any SuperPacked cellphone, regardless of the brand if it says great spec’s then it has my interest… Could it be that its the device I live around most of the day??
    I have grown to appreciate the IR blaster functionality as I find myself looking for it as a nice feature now.

      what is a “SuperPacked” phone?

    I was waiting for Redmi 3 3/32Gb and 4000 mAh… Sorry, Xiaomi…

    My guess for the ELIFE E9

    A. SuperAmoled 5.7″screen at 2K dual edged
    B. 4200+mah Battery+fast charGE
    C. X25 or X20 SoC at 6gbRam DDR4 if possible
    D. Backlit android buttons and on-screen option
    E. Dedicated camera button
    F. 8mpx front camera + F1.8 wide angle
    G. 18mpx Main Can +F1.8+PdAf+OiS+laserAF
    H. Good Vanilla ROM OS and camera app
    I. Hi-Fi audios and Dual-Front Speakers with DTS
    J. RGB notification light
    K. Triple-tone Led Flash main and dual tone front.
    L. 64GB storage ONLY plus 200gb sd-card-reader
    M. IR blaster for those into that
    N. Miracast and screen controls should be a MUST
    O. DUAL-FINGERPRINT READERS with scroll and buttons options to customize actions.

    So there you have it, for something like that with a great design I could gladly pay crazy +$500 if not you give me your comments…

      Mediatek X20 and X25 does not support DDR4 Ram.

    Hope that there will be a version with a powerful cpu like a Mediatek P10. I want the pro version so please Xiaomi make my dream come true.

    Youre doing an HTC and releasing way too many phones xiaomi. I would be a little sad if I had bought the normal redmi 3

    I don’t know what you’re guys saying, but this is a wonderful (and my next) phone. A 5″ Redmi 3 High, with a huge battery and a fingerprint reader, from a reliable company, for 150$
    The only downside is 720p, but that helps save some battery so… Xiaomi, thank you.
    A phone without a fingerprint reader is not a good buy in 2016., so it’s good they have upgraded it.
