Xiaomi Mi 9: triple camera and fast wireless charging for $509

Xiaomi has been testing this device for quite some time but today, the company has finally announced a firm release date and pricing for Mi Mix 3 5G. We don't understand why Xiaomi didn't do this with the first iteration, but the 3200mAh cell present in the 4G LTE variant of the Mi MIX 3 is bumped up to 3800mAh in the 5G-ready model. Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 features a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 5 on top.

The Mi MIX 3 5G has all the things you love from the regular Mi MIX 3 but swaps out the Snapdragon 845 for the newer and more powerful Snapdragon 845 processor.

Xiaomi kicked off the event with 5G - because 5G is the Barcelona buzzword this week - refreshing last fall's Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 with a new 5G version. Xiaomi claims its 5G smartphone will be theoretically capable of downloading a 15-minute video sized 256MB in just 1 second. This means that the smartphone features a magnetic slider design and it comes with ceramic body.

There are dual primary cameras with the primary camera being a 12MP one with a f/1.8 aperture and OIS and a 12MP telephoto camera. In terms of storage, Mi MIX 3 comes in four variants of 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB and 10GB+256GB. It runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie and is backed by same 3,200mAh battery. The smartphone is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. It packs a 3,200mAh battery along with fast charging and wireless charging. The smartphone was launched in China last week and shows Xiaomi's focus to tap into a market where Samsung and Apple have become vulnerable for lack of innovation and huge price. It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner.

Pre-orders for the Mi 9 in Spain have already been started through Authorised Mi Stores, Mi.com, Cdiscount, Darty, and Fnac. The three colors available will be Piano Black, Ocean Blue, and Lavendar Violet, all with that darling halo-making nano-coating on the back to turn that one shade into a rainbow.
