Xiaomi Mi Note 3 coming soon

Understandably, launching the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus prior to the Mi Note 3 would have been impractical. The Mi Note 3 is rumored to be a high-end device. Allegedly, the Mi Note 3 will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 upgraded version (MSM8998SG) CPU with up to 8GB of RAM! The 5.7-inch mobile phone will mount a 2K display with OLED panel. It will be available in two variants. One will have 128GB ROM, while the other will mount 256GB of internal storage. The smartphone will also carry a huge-capacity 4,070mAh battery. With these specs coupled with other components, Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is expected to be priced similar to the Mi 6.

The news may not be so bad after all. With the rumored specs of the Xiaomi Mi Note 3, the release of the Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus would have been unnecessary. Fans can now anticipate to purchase a big-screen Xiaomi flagship phone in the third quarter of the year with a different name, Xiaomi Mi Note 3.
