Xiaomi Will Unveil Another Smartphone With Mi Mix 2 On September 11

Xiaomi Will Unveil Another Smartphone With Mi Mix 2 On September 11

Even though some rumors claimed the second device to be launched as the Mi 6 Plus, we can now confirm that the second device that will launch on September 11 will be the Mi Note 3.

The co-founder of Xiaomi, Lin Bin, on Friday, posted a teaser image of the Mi Note 3.

The company released a video teaser that gives us the hint of Mi Note 3. The 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display may also be curved on both sides, an implementation that made its debut on the Xiaomi Mi Note 2.

If the Mi Mix was any indication, Xiaomi will fill the Mix 2 to the brim with the latest processors and hardware and a screen that will be near-bezel-less.

Xiaomi says the Lake Blue variant of Redmi Note 4 has been launched as a part of its "Wake the Lake" project in India and part of the proceeds from the sale of each device will go towards supporting initiatives under the government's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Apart from the teaser image, Xiaomi also shared a teaser video of the Mi Note 3 on Friday. The Chinese technology giant is all set to unveil the Mi Mix 2 next week and it could come along with the Mi Note 3.

The retail box is black and is sealed, so this is probably a unit shipped out to licensed retailers ahead of the launch or a unit from Xiaomi's own store. The phone might also come in two variants which differ in price, internal memory and RAM. The smartphone is likely to sport a 12-megapixel dual camera setup on the rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. To top it all, the device will allegedly use MIUI 8 based on Android OS.

Now that you know that the Mi Note 3 is a less powerful albeit larger variant of the Mi 6, would you still buy it? And now, it seems like Lin Bin has spilled some beans regarding the specifications of the Mi Note 3. The smartphone will likely be powered by a Snapdragon 835 64-bit octa-core SoC and the phone is also expected to pack in at least 6GB of RAM. The 6GB RAM variant is expected to be priced around $599 which roughly translates to Rs 38,893.

- 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options.
