True to what we have heard before, Xiaomi has unveiled not only one but three new devices in Beijing earlier today. Since we have discussed about Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Mix 2, it is now time to meet the Mi Note 3.
During the phone’s introduction today, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun pointed out that Mi Note 3 was made to cater users who love Mi 6’s design but also want to have it with a bigger display. This is the reason why both smartphones looked identical to each other although Mi Note 3 does come with a bigger 5.5-inch full HD display.
Xiaomi has also carried over the dual 12MP rear camera setup with 4-axis optical image stabilization, and 2x optical zoom from Mi 6 to Mi Note 3. Not only that, the phone also features 16MP front camera with AI-enhanced beautification mode alongside 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage.
Given the bigger display, it’s not surprising to see that Xiaomi has also choose to equip Mi Note 3 with a bigger 3500mAh battery. However, the Mi Note 3 runs on a lower-end processor in the form of Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 instead of Mi 6’s high-end Snapdragon 835 SoC.
Price-wise, the black-colored 64GB model goes for CNY 2,499 (about RM 1,611) while the 128GB version is priced at CNY 2,899 (about RM 1,868). For those who prefer Mi Note 3 in blue, it is only available with 128GB internal storage for CNY 2,999 (about RM 1,933). All three models will be made available for consumers in China starting from tomorrow’s evening.
