Just after launching the Xiaomi Redmi 4 in India, the next thing we saw is the Mi Router 3C. Who would have expected a router from a smartphone company like Xiaomi, it was really surprising to know that the router was priced very aggressively at ₹1,199.
Xiaomi Mi Router 3C is the first smart router from Xiaomi launched in India. A simple 802.11 Wi-Fi router with 300 Mbps support and four high-performance antennas made for home use sounds appealing. It can be accessed by a smart Mi Wi-Fi app on your phone.
The router is equipped with four antennas each with a dedicated PCB circuit and has a 2-transmit, 2-receive antenna design. A four antenna design also ensures that signal won’t lost if there are multiple devices connected.
Spec wise, the router sports a MediaTek MT7628N chip, equips a 16 MB ROM and 64 MB DDR2 RAM. On the connectivity side, it has 2 LAN ports and one WAN port. It can connect up to 64 devices including 20 computing devices and 44 IoT devices.
