Joining Samsung and Oppo, Xiaomi also launched its first 5G smartphone at MWC 2019.

China's Xiaomi has launched its contribution to a new wave of smartphones that will be able to take advantage of faster 5G mobile networks at a lower price than analysts expect from rivals such as Samsung.

Xiaomi Mi MIX3 5G is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor paired with X50 modem. This means the Mi Mix 5G is capable of downloading a 15-minute 1080p (256MB) video in a second or 26 MP3 files (320Kbps) in a second. In terms of storage, Mi MIX 3 comes in four variants of 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 10GB+256GB. It has dual 12MP rear cameras and dual front-facing cameras (24MP + 2MP). According to Xiaomi, this solution can disperse heat 3 times faster than a typical dual graphite sheet.

"5G is here, not in 2020, not late 2020; it's here right now in 2019", Cristiano Amon, president of chipmaker Qualcomm, which supplies Xiaomi, said during a launch event.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 price in the global markets has been set at Euro 449 (roughly Rs. 36,200) for the base 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant, while the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model will be available at Euro 499 (roughly Rs. 40,200). Also, it sports the Snapdragon X50 independent baseband that makes the phone support 5G connectivity. They also managed to give it a bigger battery with the older model having a 3200 mAh pack and the new one features a much bigger 3800 mAh battery back.

Xiaomi Mi 9 is priced at 499 Euors for the 6GB+64GB variant. Xiaomi says it will be available in May on Mi.com, at Mi Stores, and at retail partner stores.

It's available in Piano Black, Ocean Blue, and Lavender Violet, though we were told that in the United Kingdom only the black and blue versions would be available at launch.
