We knew there won’t be any Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus ever. By some reasons, Xiaomi canceled its production and launched only one large screen smartphone apart from the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 and Mi MAX 2. As you understand, the last two models belong to different categories – the former one is an experimental device, while the Mi MAX 2 fights in the niche of large-screen and large-battery handsets. Almost all top brands launch two versions for their flagships. Apple, Samsung, Huawei and other act in this way. So Xiaomi does as well. But if the Xiaomi Mi 5S and Mi 5S Plus came due to the same philosophy, the Xiaomi Mi 6 didn’t. After the failure of the aforementioned fifth-gen Mi flagships, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 was the last break in the clouds. Fortunately, it could save the day. However, the successor of that phone, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 comes with other goals in mind. It’s not better than the Mi 6. It’s just larger and it sports the same design. And this device is already available for purchase starting today at quite affordable price tags. So if you want to get your hands on the larger variant of the Xiaomi Mi 6, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 deals are waiting for you.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 comes with a four-sided curved glass body. But in comparison to the original Mi 6, this model uses a 7 series aviation aluminum for the frame. As a result, the device has become larger, but lighter. It is lighter from the smaller Mi 6 by 5 grams and from the Apple iPhone 7 Plus by 25 grams. This simply means the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is great in terms of ergonomics.
Apart of this, the phone features a 5.5-inch screen with eye protection technology (550nit bright screen + sun screen) that also supports 1nit super mask at night. The Mi Note 3 is powered by Snapdragon 660 processor that means it should be more humble in terms of performance. On the other hand, we have already taken a glance at this chip, and know what improvements have been made. There is also a 6GB memory, full-featured NFC support, the same dual-camera as on the Mi 6 but with upgraded camera algorithm, a 16MP front shooter with beautifying AI technology, and many more.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 price tags are as follow:
- 6GB + 64GB in Black – 2,499 yuan ($383),
- 6GB + 128GB in Black – 2,899 ($444),
- 6GB + 128GB in Blue – 2,999 yuan ($460).
