Mi Mix 3 is the upcoming flagship from Xiaomi which follows the trend of camera pop-up trend like Vivo Nex, Oppo Find X. However, the device has a different sliding camera mechanism – it is divided into two pieces where the whole back part slides up to reveal the camera and other sensors.
In a follow-up tweet, Sung mentioned that the Xiaomi has successfully tested 5G data connections on all of its devices which showed 10X faster download speed than 4G. He also says that the rollout will start off in 2019.
Since Indian telecom promises to deliver 5G by 2022, it would be interesting to see how the Xiaomi will manage to bring the new Internet speeds in its major-selling country.
