When we talk about the competition in 5G Market, most companies have plans to launch 5G-capable smartphones, a majority of them will only hit the market in mid-2019. If Xiaomi launches the Mi Mix 3, it could be the world’s first smartphone to support 5G networks.
As reported earlier Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be made official on October 25. Other than the 5G, other feature that makes Mi MIX 3 unique is the 10 GB RAM, the device is going to be the first smartphone of the world to feature this size of RAM.
Recently, a new version of the Oppo Find X was leaked with 10GB RAM but it was later revealed that no such device was planned. That means, the Mi Mix 3 will indeed feature 10GB RAM, making it the first smartphone to do so.
