Xiaomi launched Mi3 in India last week and today the company announced the device will be up for pre-order on Flipkart and will be available from July 22 for Rs 13,999. Incidentally, the pre-order is just showing interest for the device by signing in your flipkart account and the website says the pre-order will be open till July 21 and only those who registers during the period could buy the device when it is available. Looks like testing the waters.
A quick run into the specifications, the Mi3 features a 5-inch 1080p IPS display, a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. It comes with 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, both capable of shooting 1080p videos. A massive 3050mAh battery is also included in this single-SIM device cased in a metal body. The Mi3 also features dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and Wi-Fi Direct.
Along side unveiling the pricing and availability of Mi3, Xiaomi also announced two new upcoming devices, Redmi 1S and Redmi Note priced at Rs 6,999 and Rs 9,999.
