Barely three months after launching the Redmi Note 2, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi announces its third-generation phablet, dubbed the Redmi Note 3. For the first time in the company's history, it is adding a fingerprint sensor to its flagship device, ratifying the growing popularity of mobile payments. Interestingly, Apple is reportedly launching Apple Pay in China early next year.

Apart from the nifty fingerprint sensor, which is located at the back, the Redmi Note 2 also has an all-metal body, another first for Xiaomi. The device is 8.65mm thick and weighs 164 grams, the company said. Xiaomi claims that the fingerprint sensor unlocks in 0.3 seconds, an assertion that we have yet to verify. Another major selling point is the 4000mAh battery, which is quite impressive for a phone.

Other features of the Redmi Note 3 include a 5.5-inch full-HD 1080p display, a Helio X10 MediaTek processor, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and 4G and dual-SIM support. Running on Xiaomi's MIUI 7 operating system, the phablet will have two variants: one having a 2GB RAM and 16GB of storage (CNY 899) and the other having a 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage (CNY 1,099). There are three colors: silver, gold, dark grey.
