Xiaomi Mi Note 3 with 6 GB of RAM and dual camera launched
Xiaomi launched its latest flagship the Mi Note 3 today. It is a 5.5-inch device with a Snapdragon 660 coupled up 6 GB of RAM. Storage option includes 64GB of 128 GB. The device, however, is nothing like the Mi Mix with almost zero bezels. That in the Xiaomi lineup is received to the Mi Mix series only. However, Xiaomi made it clear that even with bezels, it has a smaller footprint than the iPhone 7 Plus.
What makes the Mi Note 3 special is its dual camera setup. It sports a 12 MP wide-angle lens along with a 12 MP telephoto lens offering 2x optical zoom. Xiaomi also mentioned the Mi Note 3 camera’s sports 4-axis optical image stabilization. The cameras also are capable of taking the Bokeh effect which is so common these days.
The secondary camera, on the other hand, features a 16 MP sensor with what Xiaomi calls an Adaptable AI Beautify mode. What this apparently does is offer a “realistic beautify effect” that won’t compromise the quality of the image.
The Mi Note 3 has an aluminum frame and a glass back which is similar to the Mi 6 launched back in April.
All of this powered by a 3,500 mAh battery and also comes equipped with NFC, an IR blaster, as well as stereo speakers. Other things worth mentioning are a fingerprint scanner that’s embedded in the home button below the display, a USB Type-C port, and a facial recognition feature that gives you another way to unlock the device.
The Mi Note 3 starts from RMB 2,499 (around $385), while the 128 GB variant will retail for RMB 2,899 (around $445). The blue version is slightly more expensive at RMB 2,999 (around $460).
