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.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Apple iPhone XR Review

If you aren't sure you are ready to leave the Home button behind and embrace Face ID, think again. We'll tell you why the iPhone XR is worth the sacrifice - especially because it's just as good (if not better than) the iPhone XS. Find out more in out full review.
Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
