Xiaomi Redmi 3 Will Most Likely Feature Snapdragon 616

Back in December, we saw a new Xiaomi device on TENAA, which looked like the upcoming Redmi 3. Like always, TENAA revealed most of the specifications of the device, including a 1.5GHz octa-core processor. However, at that time, we were confused about the chip inside, whether it was the Helio P10 MT6755 or the usual MT6753. But it looks like the Redmi 3 won’t feature either of them, as IHS analyst Kevin Wang has revealed that the phone will feature Snapdragon 616 chipset.

A few hours ago, Kevin quoted a post from the Xiaomi co-founder Lin Bin, stating that the Redmi 3 comes with Snapdragon 616 inside. The new Snapdragon 616 chip is the upgraded version of last year’s Snapdragon 615. The chip comes with the same octa-core Cortex A53 cores but the clock speed is increased from 1.5GHz/ 1.0GHz to 1.5Ghz/ 1.2GHz. GPU is still Adreno 405. What’s new is the baseband which is the latest X5 LTE modem.


If the company keeps the price as low as 699 Yuan ($106), then Redmi 3 with Snapdragon 616, 2GB RAM and a unique plaid design metal body will turn out to be a pretty good deal.

Xiaomi has already confirmed the phone’s release on January 12. You can read more about it from our previous coverage.

So, what would you prefer, Snapdragon 616 or Helio P10?
