The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 was launched in China on the 11th of September at a starting price of CNY 2,899 (Rs. 28,300 approx.). The Mi Note 3 succeeds the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 which was launched in 2016 with a fair amount of upgrades. Let’s unbox the Mi Note 3 and see what we get inside:

  • Xiaomi Mi Note 3
  • Documentation
  • USB C cable
  • Wall charger
  • Sim ejector tool

The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 looks premium. It has a glossy finish to the curved back and the dual-cameras do not have a bump. The phone is very slippery and hence, we recommend that you use the soft cover that Xiaomi provides in the box.

The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 has a 5.5 inch 1920 x 1080 px IPS LCD display with a pixel density of 403ppi and a 94.4 percent NTSC colour gamut.

Under the hood, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, Adreno 512 GPU, 6GB RAM, and 64GB or 128GB onboard storage options. The onboard storage can not be expanded. The fingerprint sensor is placed under the glass at the front device, just below the display. The smartphone is powered by a 3,500 mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 through USB Type C port.

Out of the box, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 8.5 on top. As soon as you boot up the device, you get a software update which brings MIUI 9 with all of its features to the Xiaomi Mi Note 3.

Unlike the Mi Mix 2, the Mi Note 3 features a dual-camera setup at the back. The primary 12MP camera has a wide angle lens and an f/1.8 aperture and the secondary 12MP camera has a telephoto lens with an f/2.6 aperture. This setup is similar to a lot of dual-camera smartphones and offers 2X lossless zooming capabilities. It also has features such as Bokeh effect shots and a portrait mode very similar to the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. The front facing camera has a 16MP sensor with a 2-micron pixel size. Xiaomi has boasted about the phone’s ‘Adaptable AI Beautify’ feature, which the Chinese smartphone maker claims is a result of over half a year’s R&D. The feature uses AI-based algorithms to beautify selfies and has a different algorithm for men and women.
