The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 features a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 display on its face along with a fingerprint reader below the screen and a 16-megapixel camera above it. That camera also includes Xiaomi’s Adaptable AI Beautify feature, which Xiaomi touts will give you a “realistic beauty effect without compromising on quality”.
Around back of Mi Note 3 is a pair of 12-megapixel cameras. One sensor features a wide angle lens while the other is a telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom. These two cameras can be combined for a portrait mode that’ll give you photos a blurry, bokeh effect.
Other features crammed into the Mi Note 3’s glass body and metal frame include Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM, an IR blaster, stereo speakers, 64/128GB of storage, facial recognition unlocking, and a 3500mAh battery that you recharge over USB-C.
While not quite as high-end as the Mi Mix 2, the Mi Note 3 offers a mix of high-end and mid-range specs in a more traditional but still attractive package. This combination of a more modest spec list and design helps to make the Mi Note 3 more affordable than the Mi Mix 2.
Xiaomi says that the Mi Note 3 will be priced at 2499 yuan ($383 USD) for the 6GB/64GB black version and 2899 yuan ($444 USD) for the 6GB/128GB black version. The special blue version of the Mi Note 3 comes equipped with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and will be priced at 2999 yuan ($460 USD).
