Hi vampritt,

The Redmi Note comes with a removable 3,200mAh battery.
As for the display, it isn't Full-HD. Only 720p.

No removable battery, NO DEAL
No 1080P Full HD, NO DEAL :)


Hi hehuafa,

Launch details for the Redmi Note will be available on Wednesday, June 25 on Xiaomi Singapore's Facebook Page at 12 noon.

Hi garyljm,

The Redmi Note that is going to be sold in Singapore will come with dual-SIM support. Unfortunately, it does not support 3G on both slots. You can find out more information on the Redmi Note here.

Anyone know is this variant of Mi Note comes with Dual Sim with Both slots support 3G Data at the same time ? Most dual sim only support 3G data in Sim 1 and Sim 2 2G only.
If not have to go for the Huawei G750 or Asus Zenphone 5 that supports both 3G data.
