Xiaomi had a very busy event yesterday, in which the company announced three new devices, Mi Mix 2, Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Note 3. At first look, Mi Note 3 seems like the larger version of Mi 6, which was launched in April this year. The only noticeable difference between two devices is the size, as the Mi Note 3 comes with the 5.5-inch full HD display while the Mi 6 comes with the 5.15-inch display.
As far as design is concerned, the Mi Note 3 comes in an aluminum frame with matte finish. Sadly, the company failed to work on top and bottom bezels, however, the side bezels are still negligible. On the back, there is a dual camera sensor, dual tone LED flash and Mi branding. It seems that Xiaomi hasn’t done any impressive job with Mi Note 3 in terms of design.
Coming to the specifications, the device comes with Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset with 6GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage. Now, one interesting thing here is, the rear camera of the device is same as we get in Mi 6, which is 12MP dual lenses with aperture f/1.8 and f/2.6. However, the company has claimed that the algorithms have been improved to provide better bokeh effect and portrait mode.
On the front side, the device has a 16MP single shooter with 2.0 µm pixel size, which is better for noise free selfies. Additionally, the device gets 3,500mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, front mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C support, Bluetooth 5.0, stereo speakers, more accurate face unlocking system and improved beautify algorithms. As far as pricing is concerned, the starting price of the device, low-end model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, is RMB 2,499. The device will go on sale from today.
