Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours


The launch date is now official and the Mi Mix 3 will arrive on 25 October with three exciting new features. Here's what we know about Xiaomi's successor to the Mi Mix 2S.

In March we saw the unveiling of the Mi Mix 2S, but Xiaomi's about to take things up a gear with the Mi Mix 3. The launch is now official, happening on 25 October, while the new phone could include exciting new features such as a truly bezel-less design, a pop-up selfie camera, an in-display fingerprint scanner and 5G support.

When is the Mi Mix 3 release date?
The Mi Mix 3 will be announced in Beijing, China, on 25 October 2018. We'll bring you full details on how to watch live nearer the time.

This is a little later than we had anticipated, given that the Mi Mix 2 was announced on 11 September 2017 alongside the Mi Note 3 and Mi Notebook Pro.
How much will the Mi Mix 3 cost?
According to Android Pure there will be standard and ceramic versions of the Mi Mix 3 with the following RRPs:

Mi Mix 3 Standard
  • 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM: 3399 Yuan (£383/US$496)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 3699 Yuan (£417/$540)
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 3999 Yuan (£451/$584)
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM: 4299 Yuan (£485/$627)
Mi Mix 3 Ceramic
  • 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM: 4399 Yuan (£496/$642)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 4699 Yuan (£530/$686)
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM: 4999 Yuan (£564/$729)
  • 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM: 5299 Yuan (£597/$773)
However, Xiaomi has already confirmed that there will be a 10GB RAM version, which these prices do not account for, so we'd take them with a pinch of salt.

Remember that because Xiaomi phones are not officially sold in the UK you will need to purchase the Mi Mix 3 through channels such as GearBest or Geekbuying. Expect to pay a slight premium, and remember to factor in import duty (20%) when shipping to the UK, but even with this you should find fantastic value.

Mi Mix 3 specifications
Xiaomi has confirmed two things about the upcoming Mi Mix 3: it will support 5G, and there will be a version with 10GB of memory. But there's lots more in store.

As one of our biggest gripes on previous models, the possibility of a redesigned selfie camera comes as music to our ears. It's also something that has been rumoured for many upcoming phones in 2019 following its success on the Vivo Nex.

In line with this theory event teasers suggest that there is bottom bezel, which would increase the screen-to-body ratio and make the now shorter 5.99in smartphone easier to hold.

This smaller chin is also visible in a leaked photo of a Mi Mix 3 and screen glass/protector, but more interestingly this image also reveals an in-display fingerprint scanner. This has so far been seen only in the Mi 8 Explorer Edition and Mi 8 Pro.

On another Xiaomi teaser image a man is shown lying on the floor surrounded by Mi Mix models. The original is clearly visible over on the right with its wider body and single-lens camera, while the 2 and 2S can be distinguished by their dual-lens camera at the rear. The only model that doesn't obviously feature a fingerprint scanner at the rear is the one in the model's hand, though unfortunately the image is not clear enough to discern much other than its narrower overall appearance.

Also rumoured to appear in the new phone is a dedicated button for calling up Xiaomi's own voice assistant - Xiao Ai. This works only in Chinese, but if you buy a Global version of the Mi Mix 3 it will also feature the Google Assistant.
Aside from this we can safely assume we'll see many of the same specs as in the Mix 2S. Therefore, you should expect the Snapdragon 845 processor with 64-, 128- or 256GB of storage, a dual AI camera, Qi wireless charging and a 5.99in Full-HD+ 18:9 display.

The size, weight and battery capacity could all be affected by the shorter body, however.

As before there will likely be a black model with 18k gold detailing on the rear, and a white model with Chrome detail. There is also talk of a Ceramic model, and of a Ferrari Special Edition.

Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Show Latest News

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series has been quiet on the news front for the past few months but we're starting to some details emerge for the highly anticipated show.
For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
