Xiaomi starts selling the Redmi 3s globally today, a bit more than a week after the official announcement. The US is among the markets where the phone will be available, which will certainly help the company’s exposure outside Asia.
The phone is currently sold by GearBest with free shipping. However, that’s a bit slow and eager customers can order fast, 3-7 days shipping.
The 5″, 720p smartphone rocks the new Snapdragon 430 chipset (quad-core Cortex-A53 @ 1.5GHz + quad-core Cortex-A53 @ 1.2GHz). The phone is offered in two variants – one with 2GB of RAM and another with 3GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB or 32GB, respectively.
You can pre-order the Xiaomi Redmi 3s in Gold, Silver and Dark Grey color variants. Shipments will disembark from July 5 for the 2GB/16GB model, whereas the higher-end model will ship from July 15.
