Xiomi announced Redmi Note 3 and Mi Pad 2 at China with a number of improvements and new functionalities in both new models.
Xiomi Redmi Note 3
Xiomi Redmi Note 3 is bigger and better than the previous model. It has a full aluminum unibody design with curved edges. It now has a fingerprint sensor on the back which can unlock the phone in just 0.3 seconds. The display is 5.5 inch with a resolution of 1920×1080. It comes in 2 memory variants, either 16 GB internal storage with 2 GB of RAM or 32 GB internal storage with 3 GB of RAM. The chipset is MediaTek Helio X10. The rear camera is 13 MP which has phase detection autofocus.
The 16 GB model costs around $140 and 32 GB model costs around $172. Available colors are silver, gray and gold.
Xiomi Mi Pad 2
The Mi Pad 2, as well, is much improved over the previous model. It looks a lot like Apple iPad. The Mi Pad 2 is just 6.95mm thick. The previous model was 8.5mm thick, which is a significant improvement. The weight has also been reduced to 322g compared to 360g of Mi Pad. The display is 7.9-inch with a stunning resolution of 2048×1536. The rear camera is 8 MP AF and the front camera is 5 MP.
The main focusing point of Mi Pad 2 is that is has a processor made by Intel. To be exact, it has an Intel Atom X5-Z8500 64-bit processor. The previous model has a Nvidia Tegra K1. The RAM is 2 GB and it has a new USB Type-C connector. The battery on this model is reduced to 6190mAh while the previous Mi Pad has a 6700 mAh battery. But we hope that the new optimisation and new processor will make it last more than the previous model.
The 16 GB version will cost around $155 and the 64 GB model will cost around $200. Available colors are dark gray and champagne gold.
