The Mi3 runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with a rich flavour of Xiaomi’s own MIUI user interface.
The camera beholds a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The fine details of camera specs include a 5-piece lens setup, ƒ/2.2 aperture for clearer picture even at low light conditions and 28mm wide-angle lens. Both the cameras are capable of shooting fullHD videos.
The connectivity options of the Mi3 also features dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and Wi-Fi Direct. The device also has a massive 3,050mAh battery.
