Xiaomi is betting big with the Redmi Note 3, which has become the company’s third smartphone to be made in India. The company also plans to make the smartphone available through various online as well as offline partners after the initial sale period, which will expand its potential consumer base. Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 3 for Indian buyers for Rs. 9,999 (2GB RAM/16GB ROM) and Rs. 11,999 (3GB RAM / 32GB ROM).
