“Xiaomi’s next-gen Mi Mix 3 5G variant will be aided by Qualcomm’s X50 modem, which doubles the internet bandwidth up to 2Gbps on mobile devices.”
Xiaomi has confirmed that it’ll hold a media briefing on February 24th, day zero of the MWC 2019. The company is expected to launch the Mi Mix 3‘s 5G variant at the event. Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 was launched last year in China and the company announced that it’d be launching its 5G variant in Europe in Q1 of 2019. Speculations are rife that the smartphone could be launched at this event. As the upcoming MWC is expected to host several 5G devices, it makes sense that Xiaomi would also launch the Mi Mix 3 5G variant at the event.
Formerly, at the China Mobile Partner Conference in Beijing, the company unveiled and gave a practical explanation of a working prototype of the 5G-enabled Mi Mix 3. It was then revealed that this next-gen device will be supported with Qualcomm’s X50 modem. The modem can double the internet bandwidth up to 2Gbps on mobile devices. This modem can be opted with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC-based smartphone.
Apart from this 5G network capability, the Mi Mix 3 5G variant will retain the same internals as the existing 4G-enabled device. Also, there will be Integrating antennae for mmWave 5G spectrum. The Mi Mix 3 4G-variant flaunts a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display, having a resolution of 1,080 X 2,340 pixels. Corning Gorilla Glass 5 will be added to protect the screen from damages.
Besides the aforementioned technical configuration, the device will be powered by an octa-core processor, same as the 4G-compliant device. It will draw the charge from a non-removable Li-ion 3,200mAh battery.
