Xiaomi never fails to disappoint its loyal fans with amazing specs at great prices. It did the same with the Redmi Note 3 by providing a fingerprint sensor in this mid-range smartphone. The device has been very well received by the buyers as it didn’t burn a hole in their pockets while giving them a premium experience at the same time. It seems that Xiaomi is bringing yet another budget smartphone with a fingerprint sensor. The device in question here is the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 3S.
While the Redmi Note series which consists of phablets with screen size 5.5-inch received the much awaited fingerprint sensor, the users of Redmi-series are still waiting for this coveted feature. Redmi 3 was launched in January this year and the fans were a bit disappointed to not find the fingerprint sensor in the spec-sheet. However, there is some good news for all the fans.

The device in all probability is the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 3S or better yet, updated Xiaomi Redmi 3 with a fingerprint sensor. It seems that Xiaomi is trying to make things straight and it should come as a great delight to the fans.
The specs and the launch date haven’t been made official yet but rumours suggest a 6th April launch of this device. According to TENAA listing, the handset will sport a 5-inch 720p display, and will be powered by the 1.5GHz processor (probably Snapdragon 616 SoC) along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage (exp up to 32GB). It will feature a 13MP rear shooter and a 5MP front-facing camera. The phone will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS out-of-the-box.
Rumors from China suggests that the device is expected to carry a price tag around 799 Yuan or $122 which is just slightly higher than the current Redmi 3 price.
