Xiaomi’s Redmi 3X (Redmi 3S + China Unicom support) now on sale

You may well be aware of the Redmi 3S from Xiaomi, but there’s another phone that the brand released soon after — the Redmi 3X.

The main point of difference is the network support, while everything else remains the same. What this means is that the Redmi 3X comes with the same spec sheet.

This includes a 5-inch 1280 x 720p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, a 13 mega-pixel rear camera and a 5 mega-pixel front facing camera. Quite an entry-level to mid-range phone, in my opinion, much like its lost cousin.

Network support on the Redmi 3X includes:

  • 2G: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz
  • 3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz
  • CDMA 2000 BC0
  • 4G: FDD-LTE 1800/2100/2600MHz

A fingerprint sensor sits on the rear of the phone. International buyers can get their hands on one for $171, but there might be better deals for the same amount out there.
