Xiaomi Planning to Release Mi Note 3 in Q3 2017

19 May 2017
Jonathan So

Xiaomi enjoyed amazing success with the recent flash sale of its Mi6 flagship, selling out in the first few hours. However, news that the company will not be releasing the Mi6 Plus has raised some questions. To compensate for the lack of the Mi6 Plus launch, latest rumours are suggesting that the Mi Note 3 is going to be unveiled much sooner than initially planned.

According to Chinese news site MyDrivers, the Mi Note 3 is going to be launched in the third quarter of 2017, followed by the Mi Mix 2 in the last quarter of the year. Experts believe that the Mi6 Plus could be renamed to Mi Note 3 and will feature improved specifications befitting Xiaomi’s notable Note series. While still unconfirmed, the Mi Note 3 is predicted to feature a QHD panel that uses AMOLED display technology. Another key hardware component that is expected to be featured on the Mi Note 3 will be the dual-camera setup that was popular on the recently released Mi6 smartphone.

The Mi Note 2, the predecessor of the upcoming Mi Note 3, came equipped with a 4,070mAh battery and a display screen measuring 5.7 inches. The upcoming flagship is rumoured to feature the same screen size but as there are speculations that the battery capacity will be larger on the Mi Note 3. The company might also be removing the headphone jack, which will make the phone splash-resistant.

In terms of the potential processor which will power the Mi Note 3, Xiaomi would probably need to settle for the Snapdragon 835 chipset unless Qualcomm releases a slightly better-performing SOC like it did in 2016 with its Snapdragon 821. However, the company did announce that it is working on its very own Surge S1 SoC that was fabricated on the 28nm architecture and a 10nm FinFET that could potentially challenge the Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8885 which we might see debuting on the Mi Note 3.

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 Hong Kong: A Super-Fast Budget Handset

If you want an iPhone but couldn’t justify its high price tag or a Xiaomi Mi 6 but wished its screen was bigger, then you’ll find what you were looking for in Xiaomi Mi Note 3. It is one of Xiaomi’s mid-range models which look like a larger version of Mi 6, but feels a lot like Apple’s smartphones at the same time. Here’s a rundown of its specifications and features

Familiar Design and Full HD Display

Starting with the exteriors, the Mi Note 3 is absolutely identical to the Mi 6 with a slightly larger dimension. The 3D glass back with 7000 series aluminum chassis looks and feels quite good. There is a fingerprint scanner at the front, neatly tacked inside a layer of glass.

The Mi Note 3 sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display covered with a 2.5D curved glass. The display has a 1920x1080pixels resolution resulting in pin-sharp 401PPI. The IPS panel is rounded off at the sides and as usual, it is resistant to scratches, although Xiaomi does not mention brand names such as Gorilla Glass. Viewing angles are as stable as those of any other flagship on the market and readability outside is as excellent as with Mi6. The high brightness combined with Xiaomi’s automatic contrast deliver great results.

Top-of-the-line Processor

Moving inside, you will find the Snapdragon 660 SoC with its eight Kyro 260 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and Adreno 512 GPU. Memory-wise, there is 6 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB of storage. While the RAM is the top-end LPDDR4x type, the storage is the inferior eMMC 5.1. In comparison, the Xiaomi Mi 6 comes with a faster UFS 2.0 / 2.1 memory. Regarding software, the Mi Note 3 runs MIUI 9 with Android Nougat out of the box.

Great Sensors

Coming to the optics, the same dual 12 MP dual camera module of the Mi 6 sits at the back of the Mi Note 3. For starters, this camera setup consists of one 12 MP wide-angle shooter and another 12 MP telephoto unit. This can facilitate 2x optical zoom just like the Mi 6 or Mi 5X. Fortunately, Xiaomi has included the 4-axis optical image stabilization in the Mi Note 3. When it comes to the selfie camera, the bigger device has a better 16 MP front snapper in contrast to the 8 MP unit of the Mi 6.

Connectivity Options and Large Battery Life

The Mi Note 3 doesn’t leave any stones unturned when it comes to connectivity. Being a Qualcomm powered the handset, it supports almost all of the planet’s cellular networks, starting from 2G, tile 4G LTE and VoLTE. Moreover, there is 2x2 MIMO dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, USB Type-C port and other necessary options. The Mi Note 3 also has a barometer and infrared sensor. A 3500mAh battery juices up the device.
