"5G is here, not in 2020, not late 2020; it's here right now in 2019", Cristiano Amon, president of chipmaker Qualcomm, which supplies Xiaomi, said during a launch event. By the way, Xiaomi has massive expectations in terms of 5G capabilities, and to demonstrate its new phone is just about ready for primetime, the company made its first 5G video call on the Barcelona stage.

Since the Mi Mix 3 5G comes with a new chipset that has new CPU and GPU, the price is getting higher.

To support 5G, it also gets Qualcomm's X50 5G modem that can deliver an insane 2Gbps peak download speeds when it's connected to a 5G network.

Back in 2018, Xiaomi announced its first smartphone with a sliding camera, the Mi MIX 3. And to ensure that the Mi MIX 3 5G won't end up in flames, Xiaomi has introduced a new hybrid cooling system that quickly captures heat using a Ragers HeatSORB material which is then dispersed three times faster thanks to a heatpipe with six layers of graphite. The 5G device will be priced from 599 Euros (about RM2,768) and it comes in Onyx Black and Sapphire Blue.

Xiaomi has partnered with several carriers in Europe to bring the device to market, including 3, Orange, Sunrise, Telefonica, TIM, and Vodafone.

Pre-orders for the Mi 9 in Spain have already been started through Authorised Mi Stores, Mi.com, Cdiscount, Darty, and Fnac. The flagship model that was unveiled in China earlier this week with a triple rear camera setup, fifth-generation in-display fingerprint sensor, 90.7-percent screen-to-body ratio, and 20W wireless charging support.

Everything else we've seen for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is here including the ceramic design, 256GB of storage and a 6.39-inch display. This isn't really a new device, per se, instead, it's the same Mi Mix 3 with its slider design and nearly bezel-less display which was unveiled earlier a year ago in China.

The Mi 9 will be available February 28 in Europe for €449 with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage or €499 with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It's just a 5G version of it, the one we've been expecting for months.
