Last month, Xiaomi announced that the company will host an event March 3 to launch the new Redmi Note 3 in India. The unveiling event is set to take place at the Talkatora Stadium, New Delhi.
Apart from various media houses, the company has also invited a few registered Xiaomi fans for the event. But for those who do not have access to the event, the company has arranged for a live-streaming option. The webcast will be broadcast through its official YouTube channel and kicks-off at 2:00 p.m. IST.
Redmi Note 3 event highlight:
The features of Redmi Note 3 are already in the public domain, so the only thing that is left to be revealed is the price tag and when the device will hit stores. It remains to be seen if Xiaomi has tied up with any e-commerce partner to sell Redmi Note 3 in India.
Word on the street is that Amazon India might have bagged the exclusive Redmi Note 3 selling rights considering Xiaomi sold its new Redmi Note Prime exclusively on Amazon website. The device was launched just a few months ago in December.
As far as the Redmi Note 3's price is concerned, Xiaomi is expected to keep the MRP (Maximum Retail Price) between Rs 11,000 and Rs 12,999. If it is priced more than that, the company might have a tough time convincing consumers to buy it's product in India as rivals -- LeEco Le 1s and Lenovo K4 Note -- already have devices, which house pretty much the same hardware and cost less than Rs 12,999.
As of now, Xiaomi has not responded to media questions in regard to speculations. We just have to wait for a few more hours to really know what Xiaomi has in store for us.
