The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G arrives in Europe: official price and availability

26 mayo, 2021

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is not new. In fact, it was unveiled in October of last year. The one that is new is the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G, which arrived in February of this year and, as its name suggests, differs from its brother in that it is compatible with the 5G network. The terminal now arrives in Europe, thus being the first device with 5G from the Chinese firm to set foot on European soil.

He does it in Switzerland from the operator Sunrise, and it makes sense. Switzerland has an advantage when it comes to 5G implementation, so it is normal that it is the country chosen by manufacturers to launch their 5G terminals. OPPO has already done it with its OPPO Reno 5G, and now Xiaomi follows the same steps.

Mi Mix 3 5g

As we can see in the table, there are three main differences with respect to the conventional model. The first is the processor, which is no longer the Snapdragon 845 to be the Snapdragon 855, latest chipset from American company. The second is, of course, the X50 modem, which will be responsible for connecting the Mi MIX 3 5G to the 5G network. The third, although not less important, is that it has 600 mAh more battery.

Otherwise, the rest of the specifications remain intact. We still have a 6.39-inch sliding screen with AMOLED technology and FullHD + resolution (2,340 x 1,080 pixels) and 19.5: 9 aspect ratio. By sliding it down we will access the double front camera, which we will talk about below.

The differences between the original Mi MIX 3 and the 5G model are the processor, modem and battery

The engine, as we said before, is made up of a Snapdragon 855, 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage, this being the only available configuration. The battery is 3,800 mAh and has fast charging and Qi wireless charging at 10W. In relation to connectivity, the device has NFC, WiFi 4/5, USB type C, category 18 4G and, of course, 5G.

Finally, the photographic section consists of four cameras, two in front and two behind. The rear sensors share 12 megapixels of resolution although they differ in their apertures (f / 1.8 the first and f / 2.4 the second). These have twox optical zoom and video at 960 frames per second. The selfie camera, meanwhile, has two 24 and 2 megapixel lenses, the second being the one in charge of portrait mode and face unlocking.

As we said before, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G arrives first in Switzerland. It will do so on May 2 at a price of 847 Swiss francs, which is 721 euros at the exchange rate.
