Xiaomi's official Redmi India Twitter handle confirmed the open sale and said, "More Redmi Note 3 stocked, no registrations required for next sale! Get it 27 April, at 2pm," Considering that the tweet only links to the Mi.com, we can assume that the open sale is only valid via the company's online store. There is no word whether the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 from April 27 onwards will be available in open sale only or will go up for sale via flash sales thereafter.
To recall, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was announced to be available via Mi.com as well as Amazon and was promised to be available from more e-commerce partners including Flipkart and Snapdeal.As before, the Redmi Note 3 will be available in two RAM and storage versions - one including 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage, and other 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage. The 2GB variant is priced at Rs. 9,999, while the 3GB variant is priced at Rs. 11,999.
The highlight of the new Redmi Note 3 is it packs a hexa-core Snapdragon 650 processor (four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz and two Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 1.8GHz). Other specifications of the smartphone are identical with the original, including a 5.5-inch full-HD 1080x1920 pixels IPS display and offers 178-degree viewing angle.
