The retailer says the Redmi Note 3 is in stock and ready to be delivered across Australia. Speaking of color choices, the handset is available in Gray, Gold and Silver hues. Buyers can choose a combination of color and internal storage choice of 16 GB and 32 GB from Xiaomi Device.

As far as specs and features go, the Redmi Note 3 sports a 5.5-inch display and comes bundled with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels Full HD screen resolution. Under the hood, it comes powered by a MediaTek (Helio X10) SoC working in tandem with an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz.

The device comes backed by either 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM based on the built-in storage choice. This means the 16 GB model settles for 2 GB of RAM while the 32 GB variant houses a 3 GB unit. On the software front, Android 5.1 Lollipop OS runs the handset with MIUI 7 on top.

When it comes to camera specs, the device carries an impressive 13 MP rear-facing snapper with LED flash and Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF). There’s also a generous 5 MP shooter at the front for selfies.

It’s worth noting Xiaomi has housed the fingerprint sensor at the back of the Redmi Note 3 unlike its counterparts where the same unit is embedded on the home button. Lastly, a killer 4,000 mAh battery unit helps keep the lights on.
