Xiaomi’s First Offline Retail-Only SmartPhone Redmi 3S Plus Launched at Rs 9,499



The popular Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has launched their first offline retail only smartphone in the form of the Redmi 3S Plus. It falls under the Redmi Series of handsets, more specifically to the recently launched handsets, Redmi 3S & Redmi 3S Prime. The new offline only handset from the company would be priced at Rs 9,499 with a best buy price of Rs 8,799.

The new Redmi 3S Plus is identical to the design and features as Redmi 3S Prime. The major difference to be noted is that the Plus would come with 2GB RAM instead of 3GB RAM on Prime. Everything else is pretty similar and unnoticeable from the first glance. We don’t know what Xiaomi specifically wanted to achieve by changing the name and reducing the RAM of Prime model.

According to the reports, it is believed that retailers across the nation have started to receive the Redmi 3S Plus units at their stores. The official sale of the device is expected to be from Saturday, i.e. October 1st. Similar to the Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime, the Plus handset would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which is an Octa-core processor. It is accompanied by Adreno 505 GPU that is used for carrying out graphic related tasks.

Do make a note that all three handsets mentioned in the article come with a 13-megapixel image sensor on the rear side and a 5-megapixel image snapper on the front side for selfies and video calling tasks. The Plus sports a fingerprint sensor on the backside of the device just like Prime. The internal storage is 32GB, which is also similar to the other two handsets that are sold online. As we mentioned earlier, the main and only difference between Prime and Plus is of RAM, as Plus comes with a 2GB of RAM compared to the 3GB of RAM on Prime model.

All this may sound quite confusing to you as for why did the brand felt a need to do such changes. With Xiaomi working on having their own branded retails stores all over the country, this seemed right move to finally launch their offline-only handset. Moreover, the name and some specifications needed to be changed because, with the offline only device, the retailers won’t have to compete with online sales and cashbacks.
