A serious Xiaomi Redmi 3 contender?
Based on the specs, they appear to be very similar in terms of hardware and power. What I can see as an advantage of the Lemon 3 against the Redmi 3 is the sharper display at Full HD against HD only. However, battery life may not be as good as this one only has 2,750 mAh compared with 4,100 mAh.
It's priced at RMB 699 which is around 5,000 Pesos out of straight local conversion. It's expected to be named as a different device for other countries.
