A few months after launching a $106 smartphone with a a big battery, a reasonably fast processor, and other surprisingly decent specs, Chinese phone maker Xiaomi is introducing an even better model.

The Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro has the same basic design and specs as the Redmi 3… but the new model has more RAM, more memory, and a fingerprint scanner.

It also costs more money… but not a lot more. The Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro sells for ¥899 (about $138).

The new model has 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone. The original Redmi 3 had 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

Other features are largely unchanged: both phones have 5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel displays, 4,100 mAh batteries, Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 octa-core processors, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras. The phone runs a version of Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Like most Xiaomi phones, the new Redmi 3 Pro will be available exclusively in China at launch, although it may eventually find its way to other markets where Xiaomi does business, such as India or Brazil.
