Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G Launched – Sports New Snapdragon 855 SoC & X50 Modems

Xiaomi today announced the 5G version of the Mi Mix 3. 5G is definitely one of the most talked about feature of 2019, apart from smartphone manufactuers focussing on a completely bezel less smartphone, 5G is what seems to be the future of innovation. With Samsung first announcing the Galaxy S10 hosting 5G capabilities, Xiaomi is not far behind with the Mi Mix 3.

The Mi MiX 3 5G – Powered By The Snapdragon 855 SoC

The Mi Mix 3 already being a solid flagship phone with a unique slider mechanism acted as a pivot point for Xiaomi’s gameplan towards completely bezel-less smartphones. Xiaomi in an interview did express its desires to launch a 5G Mi Mix phone while being extremely vague regarding details. Today in Spain, however, the brand has finally showcased the 5G version of the phone and it is stunning. Contradicting the leaks, Xiaomi did confirm that the phone is, in fact, identical to the original Mi Mix 3 when it comes down to the bare basics.

Specifications & Features – What’s New?

The 5G variant of the phone does, however, add another layer of improvements over the then perfect Mi Mix 3. The 5G Mix 3 although having the same exterior packs more than just a punch when it comes down to the internals. Rocking the invincible Snapdragon 855 for a flagship-grade performance paired with the X50 modem to support 5G. The rest of the features, on the other hand, are identical to last year’s Mix 3. With European markets ready for 5G, Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 would be one of the first to actually supply to the ever-increasing demand sharing the market with just Samsung. As Xiaomi’s grip towards Europe strengthens we could expect to see more from the manufacturer for the region.

As far as 5G capabilities are concerned the Mi Mix 3 completely harnesses the power of 5G. The presenter did make the company’s first 5G video call from Spain. 5G would not only bring in greater speeds, low latency and a new era of mobile connectivity but would enhance the already existent smartphone experience significantly. Powered by the Snapdragon 855, the Mi Mix 3 5G is more than capable of handling tasks meant for 5G.

Pricing & Availability – Starts At € 599 Only

As for the pricing and availability, the Mi Mix 3 5G would cost 599 EU and would start shipping this May. The phone itself is to be available in two colours, namely Onyx Black and Sapphire Blue. Taking the actual specifications into consideration and the fact that the phone hosts the same processor as the Galaxy S10 which launched this week, Samsung certainly has some tough competition.
