Besides the Mi Mix2, the Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi has unveiled a new mid-range smartphone Mi Note 3 in its popular Note series. The device is perfectly crafted and features a lovely design. There’s a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button, it has a dual camera on the back, and it also has some pretty impressive specs too.
In terms of specifications, the device sports a 5.5-inch display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core chipset, instead of the flagship Snapdragon 835 present in Mi 6. It has 6 GB of RAM and comes with either 64 or 128 GB of storage.
The biggest highlight of the device is its dual-camera setup on the back. It features a 12 MP wide-angle lens along with a 12 MP telephoto lens that is ideal for the Portraits. There’s 2x optical zoom, optical image stabilization, phase-detection autofocus, and 4K video recording available as well.
The company has also mentioned that the cameras have a 4-axis optical image stabilization and will, of course, allow you to capture those bokeh images that we all love. For the selfies, it comes with a 16-megapixel shooter of 2um pixel size and features adaptable AI Beautify options. The device comes with AI-based facial recognition.
Running on MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat OS, this smartphone gets the power from a 3500mAh battery with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0 fast charging technology. The dual-SIM smartphone has the standard connectivity options which include, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 5.0, USB-C and NFC
