There is a noticeable change in the familiar design with a new silver accent around the front, rounded edges and metal instead of glossy plastic.

The new metal design makes the device more beautiful,which is far better than the plastic.Xiaomi Redmi 3’s aluminum back provides for enough grip, better than any glossy plastic, but a notch lesser than what a matte material would have secured.
