The Mi Note 2, like the Mi Mix, came early this year and already now brings Xiaomi both successors on the market at the same time. On the now published pictures, the optical parallel to the Xiaomi Mi 6 is clearly and actively advertised. Also the Mi Note 3 will have a 2.5D Curved Dispay (rounded edges) as well as a curved back of glass and an aluminum frame.
The greatest optical difference is probably the size of the two devices. While the Mi 6 works with a 5.15 inch display, the note 3 with a 5.5 inch screen diagonal is significantly larger, but smaller than its predecessor. Inside the device is a Snapdragon 660 octa core processor (2.2 & 1.84 GHz). It was actually the SD 835 used in the Mi 6 expected, Xiaomi has however for Qualcomm’s top model of the middle class processors decided.
As a working memory 6 GB of the fast LPDDR4 memory are used, while the mass memory amounts to 64 or 128 gigabytes. Unfortunately, nothing is known about the possibility of memory expansion. However, another popular feature is re-installed: the infrared transmitter. In addition, with 3,500 mAh a quite large battery is installed, which should be in combination with the efficient Snapdragon 660 for sufficiently long battery times. The front camera has a double the number of megapixels compared to the Mi 6. Also the unlocking by facial recognition should be possible.
The main camera, similar to the Mi 6, consists of two 12 MP sensors, one for a dual optical zoom can be used. The main camera has a f/1.8 wide aperture while the zoom camera has an f/2.6 large. Unfortunately, LTE Band 20 lacks support just like a headphone jack. So the LTE band 20 unfortunately Mi Mix 2 exclusive. The price 3 is approx. 100 € under the Mi Mix 2.
