In a recent report, IDC had said smartphone vendors are realising the importance of offline sales. The report highlighted the inability among Chinese smartphone makers to tap into Tier 2 & 3 cities. IDC’s report clearly suggested offline-only could be the new online-only for smartphone makers and Xiaomi becomes the first to set that trend.

Xiaomi Redmi 3S+ features a 5-inch 720p HD display and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz. The smartphone has 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. Xiaomi Redmi 3S+ features a rear fingerprint sensor and support VoLTE networks.

Xiaomi Redmi 3S+ sports a 13MP rear caera with phase detection autofocus and a 5MP front camera. The Dual SIM smartphone is backed by a 4,100mAh battery like the Redmi 3S and Redmi Note 3. For Xiaomi, Redmi Note 3 is the best selling smartphone yet. The Chinese smartphone maker has already sold over 2.3 million units online. With Redmi 3S+, Xiaomi will aim to achieve similar success in the offline space. Xiaomi Redmi 3S+ is priced at Rs 9,499 and will be manufactured under company’s Make In India initiative.

    Before buying this phone, remember the blood that our soldiers shed due to China-backed stani terrorists like Hafiz Seed, Lakhvi and Masood Azhar.

    Friends we should minimise our dependencies upon Chinese products. They are growing themselves by using our market and supporting the stanis. They even though may not be directly or loudly but however going against our country's interest. We can live without the Chinese products whatever it may be.
