MWC 2019: Xiaomi announces global variant of Mi 9 for Rs 37,173

Marion JacobsFeb 26, 2019

While we expect the first wave of 5G smartphones to be more expensive than their 4G counterparts, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi just proved it doesn't care about any of that. The modem is claimed to enable 2Gbps+ peak download speed on a 5G network.

Xiaomi doesn't now release its phones in the United States, so it's unlikely you'll be able to buy the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G there. 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.

You might mistake the Mi MIX 3 5G for the Mi MIX 3 and no one would blame you. While the handset comes with some great specs, the major features found here include a 48MP sensor on a triple camera configuration, a huge 90.7 screen-to-body ratio, Game Turbo technology, a Snapdragon 855 SoC and an in-display fingerprint scanner. It will be sold by its partnered mobile carriers 3, Orange, Sunrise, Telefonica, Tim, and Vodafone, as well as in authorised Mi stores, and its website, Xiaomi Global director of Product Management Donovan Sung said at the product launch.

The pre-order for Nokia 9 PureView TA-1082, the Single-SIM variant will open at 12am ET, Sun Mar 3 as informed in the B&H listing.

Xiaomi stated that the Mi Mix 3 5G can be bought for 599 Euros (Rs 48,000 approximately). You get either 6, 8 or 10 GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage with no microSD card expansion. Now, Xiaomi just opened the Sunday press conference tour at the Mobile World Congress by launching an incredibly affordable 5G phone. It will be available in White and colour options. Other than that, the phone is pretty much similar to the original Mi Mix 3. We knew about the existence of this smartphone already, following its announcement in China, but now Xiaomi is releasing the 5G device globally.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is an impressive mid-range handset with a near-bezel-free screen thanks to its front camera slider.

In terms of storage, Mi MIX 3 comes in four variants of 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 10GB+256GB. Also, it sports the Snapdragon X50 independent baseband that makes the phone support 5G connectivity.
