Along with the Mi MIX 2, the Xiaomi launched another budget smartphone at the event in China – Mi Note 3. Though the Mi MIX was the main point of attraction, the company launched the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and Mi Notebook Pro.
Talking about the Note 3, it has a 5.5-inch display, with the resolution of 1080X1920 pixel, making ~401ppi of pixel density.
If we sneak inside the phone, we will find a 2.2GHz Octa-core Qualcomm MSM8956 plus Snapdragon 660 CPU and Adreno 512 GPU. It also packs a 6GB of RAM. To store your files, it packs either 64GB or 128GB internal storage, however, it’s not expandable.
In the optics department, it has a Dual 12-megapixel camera at the rear and a 16-megapixel camera for the selfies. The Dual camera features a wide-angle lens, along with another 12mp telephoto lens offering a 2X optical zoom. Additionally, the cameras have a 4-axis optical image stabilization, which will allow you to capture the bokeh images.
Other features like facial recognition unlock, stereo speakers, the fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, etc. are also included. To back the internals, it packs a Non-removable Li-Ion 3500 mAh battery.
The Note 3 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, Infrared, USB OTG, 3G, and 4G. Sensors on the phone include a Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
In terms of pricing, the 64 GB version will set you back RMB 2,499 (around $385), while the 128 GB variant will retail for RMB 2,899 (around $445) — only the black model. There’s also a fancier blue version of the device available that only comes with 128 GB of space and is slightly more expensive at RMB 2,999 (around $460).
And again, talking about its pricing in Nepal, please do not keep any hope that it will come cheap.
