Along with the Mi Mix 2, Xiaomi also announced the less expensive Mi Note 3 debuting with dual-camera configuration.

With 5.5-inch display and FullHD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, the Mi Note 3 is powered by Snapdragon 660 – Qualcomm’s mid-range chipset. The chip features proprietary Kryo eight cores – 4 clocked at 2.2GHz and other 4 clocked at 1.8GHz. The phone still boasts 6GB of RAM and when available, you will have option to choose from 64GB or 128GB storage variants.

Mi Note 3 comes packed with 12-megapixel dual-camera configuration – one with wide-angle lens and another with telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom. Wide angle camera also has a 4-axis OIS. The prominent feature of the primary camera is the portrait mode which takes the photos with bokeh effect (background blur).

The phone also has a 16-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies. It features Adaptable AI Beautify that can smooth the skin as normally a feature does in most smartphone cameras. But it can also change the shape of your face.

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 has a glass back with a mirror-like effect and aluminum frame around it. The phone has its similarities to the Mi 6. It features a 3500mAh battery just like the Mi Mix 2 and also has support for Quick Charge 3.0.

In addition the phone has an IR blaster and NFC connectivity too. A fingerprint scanner is embedded into home button below the screen. It also features USB Type-C

Even though the Mi Note 3 has smaller screen, it’s not compact as Mi Mix 2 for its size and weight. But the company wants you to know that it’s more compact than the current Apple flagship – iPhone 7 Plus.
