Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G Version Officially Announced at 599 Euros

The new Xiaomi phone is touted to be "one of the world's first commercially available 5G smartphones". As the name implies, this is simply the Mi Mix 3 but with an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and X50 5G modem.

The Mi MIX 3 5G is also pretty cheap. To keep things cool, the MI MIX 3 5G gets a new hybrid cooling system that uses Rogers® HeatSORB™ thermal material and a passive heatpipe that uses six layers of graphite.

Instead of a Snapdragon 845 processor, the Mi MIX 3 5G is powered by a top of the line 7nm based Snapdragon 855 processor. In other words, it can download a 15-minute 1080p video or 26 MP3 songs in one second. In terms of storage, Mi MIX 3 comes in four variants of 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 10GB+256GB.

Xiaomi had launched the Mi MIX 3 smartphone in China last October.

The Xiaomi phone features a rear-mounted triple camera setup with a combination of Sony IMX586 48-megapixel primary sensor, a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom support. Connectivity options on the Mi MIX 3 include dual SIM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C port. According to Xiaomi, this solution can disperse heat 3 times faster than a typical dual graphite sheet. Since the Snapdragon X50 5G modem is expected to be a battery guzzler, a slightly bigger battery was incorporated. This may seem too high if taking into account the price policy Xiaomi has been always running, but the company also said the cost of 5G chips and components is still very high.

As far as looks go, the Mi 9 looks like a beefed-up iPhone XS on the back.

Xiaomi Mi 9 is priced at 499 Euors for the 6GB+64GB variant. It will come in Onyx Black and Sapphire Blue. The smartphone will be up for pre-orders in France, Spain, and Italy and will be up for grabs via Mi.com, Mi Home stores and partner retail stores.
