A Xiaomi phone listed as the Mi 2015811 has been certified by China’s TENAA regulatory agency. We’re pretty certain that this isn’t going to be the official name of the phone. After all, walking into a store and asking for the Xiaomi Mi 2015811 doesn’t give you the same feeling as asking for the Xiaomi Redmi 3 does. And yes, that is the model that this phone is rumored to be.
According to Weibo listed Tech Web, the Mi 2015811 is the Redmi 3. The handset sports a 5-inch TFT display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. Under the hood is an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of expandable internal storage. A 13MP or 8MP camera is on back, with a 5MP camera in front for selfies and video chats. Android 5.1 is pre-installed. The Mi 2015811 measures 8.5mm thick, and weighs in at 143 grams.

Also receiving TENAA certification is the Xiaomi Mi 2015812. This unnamed model comes with a 5.5-inch display and apparently features the Snapdragon 808 chipset inside. That would explain why the phone is powered by a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB of native storage. The camera on back is either 8MP or 16MP, and a 5MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A fingerprint scanner is offered on the back of the unit, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. The Mi 2015812 is 8.7mm thick, weighs 166 grams, and will also be offered in Silver, Gray and Gold. The model supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB connectivity.
