Xiaomi’s lurking brilliance to be unleashed:

Xiaomi is a name unheard to almost everyone outside China but the company treasures its prominence in the home market as China’s Apple and has been giving Apple a bitter combat by outnumbering its sales in the country. Xiaomi is all primed up to give Indian smartphone leaders a stifle by locking its gun with knives. Xiaomi is ready to release Mi-3 in India, the current heir to Xiaomi’s legacy of ultra-marvelous phones with ultra-competitive pricing.

The Chinese company had recently been on west world radar systems when it filched Android designer and Vice President for product management Hugo Barra to join them after the Android I/O Conference this year. The Mi-3 was launched in China last year and had dazed everyone with its jaw-dropping price and performance accord. Xiaomi is willing to transmit the same enthusiasm and awe in India by launching this beast at a price of only Rs. 14,999.

Amazing specs with bewitching looks and sensible pricing:

Just after Motorola’s Moto G startled Indian users and gained much appreciation, Xiaomi will launch their phone just a thousand rupees over Moto G’s 16GB version and the specifications are set to bewilder Indians yet again. The behemoth has a 5-inch screen with full HD display and Corning Gorilla Glass aside a stunning pixel density of 441ppi. The heartbeat is powered by Qualcomm 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor along with 2GB or RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Running on the latest Android KitKat, Mi-3 has a customized UI dubbed the MIUI V5.

Glittering camera, set to woo snappers:

The bag of astonishing miracles unpacks a 13MP camera with Sony Exmor sensor capable of shooting 1080p videos. Mi-3 has Sony’s best phone camera sensor and is loaded with a flock of intelligent features like the one that automatically determines your age and sex to enrich picture quality. The stunners don’t end at this. Mi-3 has a colossal battery of 3050 mAh. The handset doesn’t come with 4G but that is docile in Indian context as even 3G is suffering to entomb its roots firmly here. Components that the Mi-3 houses are found in dignitaries like Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 5, Xperia Z1 and LG G2 to enumerate some.

Made In China, still a dilemma:

People may find body a little inspire by the Nokia 920 with wide speaker grille at the bottom and thick round edges. Although the build quality may disappoint some but at this price, it doesn’t have to bear the complete iPhone 5S armour as far as its zippiness can pacify disappointments in its vital stats. Another setback would be unavailability of MicroSD card slot, as users may find internal memory of just 12GB bestowed upon them a little cramped.

Coming from biggest Chinese manufacturer, reasons to cheer:

Going by the specifications Xiaomi offers, it is, at least on paper, the undisputed sultan of the mid-range market with typically no competition. In the age of China conquering manufacturing outsourcing arena, this is at least a home-made device from world’s fastest growing mobile phone company. A reason worth joy certainly.
