Donovansung Xiaomi’s Global spokesperson head uploaded a picture of Mi mix 3 on the Instagram and while showing the picture it is MI mix 3 could be the first smartphone to support 5G connection.
Yes, the device you see in the Instagram screenshot attached below is the Mi Mix 3 and damn, it looks absolutely stunning at first sight. It’s almost an all screen smartphone, with minimal bezels on all sides and no awfully-placed selfie camera in the chin.
Xiaomi has now moved the selfie camera and sensors to an Oppo Find X-like sliding camera mechanism, which isn’t visible here. The previous render gave us a look at what’s packed in that sliding section could be two selfie camera, IR face unlocking, or possibly the complete Face ID tech we’ve seen on the Mi 8 Explorer Edition.
Xiaomi’s first official test run of the 5G network on one of its upcoming smartphone. The smartphone seen in the leaked image has bare minimal bezels on all its four sides and doesn’t even come with a notch. If previous leaks by popular Chinese tipsters are to be believed, the image of the smartphone posted on Twitter by the Xiaomi official directly corresponds to the alleged renders of the Mi Mix 3.
Apart from posting the image of the smartphone, Donovan further stated that the brand plans to launch its first 5G supported smartphone later this year. Most smartphone markers aren’t expected to launch their 5G smartphones until the middle of next year, thereby from what it seems Xiaomi may end up becoming the first brand to launch a 5G device. Sung also reveals that the company has recording 10x faster speed on the Xiaomi.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3: World’s First 5G Smartphone?
5G has been a point of debate and discussion ever since the past few years, with multiple technology giants including chipmaker Qualcomm, search engine giant Google, Samsung, LG, ZTE and even telecom operators like AT&T and Verizon playing a key role in the development of the new network band. Although 4G LTE is yet to completely penetrate in every nook and corner of India, the idea of 5G network indeed excites us to the core. With that said, there’s still some time before 5G apparently makes its way to India. China may, however, end up getting 5G earlier than India, all thanks to the alleged Mi Mix 3.
Xiaomi, unlike its other Chinese counterparts like Huawei and ZTE, aren’t as deeply involved in the network side of the things. For those unaware, the network business of the latter two firms reaps much of their yearly revenues.
