Xiaomi has sold 110 million Redmi phones across the world in three years, equivalent to 1.2 units sold every second. With its Redmi series, Xiaomi has disrupted the smartphone industry in India and redefined the sub-10K category with high-quality devices that simply blow the competition out of the water.

Crafted with a premium metal body, Redmi 3S has a 5-inch HD display. Despite being extremely lightweight at only 144g, Redmi 3S can power through up to two days of regular usage thanks to its large, high-density 4100mAH battery. Even with almost twice the battery capacity of Redmi 2, Redmi 3S has a metal body that is 10% thinner than Redmi 2.

Redmi 3S has a camera that builds on the success of last year’s Redmi 2, which saw users producing amazing photos often compared to those taken by flagship smartphones.

It supports 4G LTE and VoLTE out of the box, covering all India LTE bands – Bands 3, 5 and 40.
