The Snapdragon variant (codename kenzo) was launched on March 3, 2016. The launch event was held at Delhi's Talkatora Indoor Stadium, Hugo Barra, the vice president of Xiaomi gave the speech. Redmi Note 3 is the third "Made in India" Mi phone, the previous ones are Redmi 2 Prime and Redmi Note Prime.
Redmi Note 3 Special Edition (codename kate) was launched on June 2016, it features an upgraded modem and new housing, all the specifications except modem are the same as in kenzo.
All variants include a 5.5 in (140 mm) 1080p display, 2 GB or 3 GB RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB eMMC 5.0 Flash, a 5MP front camera, non-removable Li-Po 4050 mAh battery and it supports 802.11b/g/n/ac networks on both the 2.4 and 5GHz bands. Phones also support two SIM cards or a SIM card + microSDHC card because one SIM card and the microSDHC card share the same physical tray slot.
One notable difference between the MediaTek and Qualcomm variants of the phone is the primary camera. The Mediatek phone uses a less powerful 13MP camera sensor, whereas this is upgraded to a 16MP sensor on the Qualcomm models.
The Snapdragon versions use a special display technology known as 'Sunlight Display' in which the phone detects the ambient light and makes pixel level adjustments in order to be better legible in the sunlight. It also features a blue light filter for low light night reading.
Another notable feature of the phone is the presence of a finger-print sensor at the back. It is not only fast but very accurate as well. It can be used from all directions and can unlock the phone in around 0.1 seconds. It can also be used for capturing images via the front or the rear cameras.
Kenzo runs on an Android based MIUI 7 OS which was upgraded to MIUI 8 based on Android 6.0 and then to the newest MIUI 9 based on Android 7.0. Many custom Android ROMs are available for this device; notable examples are CyanogenMod 13 and 14 (based on Android Marshmallow and Nougat, respectively), Lineage OS 13, 14 and an unstable port of Sailfish OS.
Although both Snapdragon based variants are similar their ROMs are not compatible with each other and installing the wrong one may cause break down of the device.
On August 25, 2016, Xiaomi reported it had sold around 1.75 million units since March 2016. It also became the highest-shipped smartphone in India's online market in Q2 2016. It also became India's best online selling phone after it sold 2.3 million units until September 2016.
