Xiaomi Mi Note 3 goes official, with dual camera, Snapdragon 660


Xiaomi Mi Note 3 was unveiled earlier today – as expected- during Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 event and people were a bit confused by it – truth be told. The device is no longer a… flagship model, as it now sits slightly above the Mi 5X (or Mi A1) with a Snapdragon 660 chipset (not the expected 835) but has plenty of RAM and storage – 6GB and either 64GB or 128GB.

It comes with a dual camera on its back, with two 12MP sensors (a regular and a 2x telephoto one). It boasts impressive imaging specs, like Portrait Mode and Auto Beautify, while the 16MP front snapper has Adaptable AI Beautify which smooths skin and can even change the shape of a face! 

The Mi Note 3 – that comes with a 5.5-inch FHD display – packs a 3500 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology, runs on Android 7.1.2 with MIUI 9 but will soon be upgraded to Android 8 Oreo.
