5G Phone Coming Next Month – Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 To Support 5G networks

Some phone makers have been teasing consumers with the release of their 5G phones next year and Xiaomi too is not left out. However, the Chinese company’s co-founder and president Lin Bin has been taunting other brands with how amazing the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is going to be. Firstly, it will feature the Oppo Find X-like pop-up camera and now, it will get 5G support.

In the latest photo he shared, the phone’s status bar was reading “5G”. The phone is in front of what looks like a 5G testing lab. “NR5G” refers to to the 5G New Radio standard, which encompass the sub-6GHz and mmWave technologies.

The N257 band specifically is in the 28GHz band, so it’s mmWave tech (the faster, but shorter range of the two technologies). Qualcomm already has two modems that support the new 5G standards and promise speeds up to 2Gbps and 5Gbps. Possibly, one of those is inside the Mi Mix 3 (though we have other vendors with 5G-capable modems).

Bin suggested that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be unveiled in late October, so we should expect the notch-free, 5G-powered future in less than two months from now.

However, the same photo was tweeted by Xiaomi’s Director of Product Management, saying that the rollout will be next year. No clarity if that was for the phone or for the networks.
