5G smarthones have long been expected and most phone makers are preparing to launch their’s next year and Xiaomi also seem to be on top of their game when it come to this.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.
