“The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 price will reportedly make it the most expensive model in the series, and 5G support and 10GB RAM likely reserved for just the top variant”
The Mi Mix 3 smartphone is set to go official, heralding the launch of the first Xiaomi handset with a slider design. This slider unit will house the front camera and sensor array, which will help Mi Mix 3 achieve ultra-thin bezels around all sides and no unsightly display notch. The launch event is scheduled for 2pm China time (11:30am IST) and will be held in Beijing at the Forbidden City palace complex. This is the fourth smartphone being launched in the Mi Mix line and will be the world’s first commercially-available smartphone with 5G support.

Mi Mix 3 price, specifications
A recent Mi Mix 3 price leak suggests it will be most expensive model in the Mix series yet, which is not really a surprise considering the top-end hardware and 5G support. The leak claims the base variant of the smartphone with 6GB of RAM will cost RMB 3,799 (~Rs 40,000). It is highly likely that flagship features such as 5G support and 10GB of RAM will be reserved only for the top variant, which will be available in limited numbers and at a much higher price tag.
As for the specifications, Mi Mix 3 is said to sport a Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, size not known at the moment. The phone will reportedly rock Snapdragon 845 SoC under the hood for the normal 4G variant and the yet-unreleased Snapdragon 855 SoC for the 5G variant. On the camera front, the device will sport a dual 24MP sensors on the front and the camera set up on the rear that will support 960fps slow-mo video, just like the Galaxy S9 and S9+. The Mi Mix 3 is tipped to come pre-loaded with Android Pie-based MIUI 10 out of the box and house a battery that will also support wireless charging.
