Xiaomi was one of the brands enlisted in the Qualcomm’s 5G equipped mobile device lineup. It had also appeared in the 5G testing phase, shared by the company representatives. Being an upgrade, the device shows some minor changes under the hood. It packs the Snapdragon 855 chipset with X50 modem, which brings the 5G support.

Whilst divulging into the features, you would find similarities for the most part. That being said, this one sports a 6.39-inch FHD+ Samsung AMOLED display with 2340 x 1080 resolution and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. It is also a slider phone with Xiaomi’s patented magnetic slider mechanism.
Upfront, the Mi MIX 3 5G houses a primary 24MP camera and a secondary 2MP sensor for portrait shots. This facilitates Face Unlock. The rear has a Sony’s IMX576 12MP (F/1.8) AI dual camera with 960 FPS slow-mo video capabilities.
As mentioned before, this would be powered by Snapdragon 855 SoC with X50 modem. On the performance front, the company touts a 45 percent faster single-core performance. And as far as 5G speed is concerned, Xiaomi claims up to sub-6GHz signal that has gigabit-class download speed, which is tens of times faster than the 4G network.
This one also comes with a fourth-gen Qualcomm AI Engine that is claimed to be three times faster AI performance. This one could be a good pick for gamers thanks to the highly-advanced hybrid cooling system and Qualcomm Adreno 640 GPU’s increased performance.
We could expect the device to come with a 10GB RAM variant with 256GB internal storage like the predecessor. Other options included a 8GB RAM+256GB ROM, 8GB RAM+128GB ROM and 6GB+ 128GB ROM.
It is fueled by a 3800mAh battery paired with quick charge+ support. Like the standard Mi Mix 3, this one should also support wireless charging.
In the software side, the Mi MIX 3 5G is an upgrade with Android Pie-based MIUI 10 out-of-the-box. You could grab the phone in three color variants: Onyx Black and Sapphire Blue.
