A new smartphone is in town and it is called Red Pepper Note 3, who is the successor to Red Pepper Note which was launched last year in March. The company has skipped the name Red Pepper Note 2 and instead, named this model as the Red Pepper Note 3 carrying a price tag of 699 Yuan ($105).
Red Pepper Note 3 is a phablet and flaunts a 5.5 inches Full HD 1080P display and is powered by an upgraded 1.3GHz octa core MediaTek MT6753 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
Red Pepper Note 3 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and supports dual 4G standby. The main highlight of this smartphone is the presence of a fingerprint sensor which unlocks the phone in under 0.5 seconds.
Red Pepper Note 3 comes with 16GB of onboard storage and supports expandable storage up to 64GB. As for optics, this phone features a usual 13MP and 5MP rear and front shooters respectively.
This smartphone comes with all the usual connectivity options like WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G, Micro USB and GPS among others. It is fueled by a 2800mAh battery underneath, which is pretty decent.
The phone will go on sale on January 21.
The pricing of this smartphone puts this into direct competition with recently launched Xiaomi’s Redmi 3 which carries the same price tag.
There are a couple of areas where the phone manages to beat even the Redmi 3 like the FHD display and fingerprint sensor. Considering this is a $100 smartphone, the specs of the phone are really impressive!
So, it looks like competition in the budget smartphone market is going to get tougher in the coming months.[source]
