It has long been rumoured that Xiaomi would release an updated Redmi 3S and today the phone finally goes on sale.
The upgraded Xiaomi Redmi 3S goes on sale today at the great price of only 699 Yuan.
For the new phone Xiaomi have equipped the Redmi 3S with an octacore Snapdragon 430 chipset, options for either 2GB or 3GB RAM (16GB-32GB memory), dual SIM support and a monster 4100mAh battery.
If dual SIMs are unnecessary then you can use just a single SIM and a micro SD card of up to 128GB in the phone instead.
Other features include a 5 mega-pixel front camera, 13 megapixel rear, 5-inch 1280 x 720 HD display and full metal body in either silver, grey or gold, plus like all good budget phones there is a fingerprint scanner on the rear for good measure.
Pricing starts at 699 Yuan for the 2GB + 16GB variant of the phone, while the 3GB + 32GB model comes in a 899 Yuan. Not a bad looking phone for the money and quite a bit more attractive than Meizu’s M3S.
