[Update – No!] Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 could be the first smartphone with Snapdragon 855
In a couple of days, Xiaomi will unveil the Mi Mix 3, its fourth smartphone in the Mix series with a bezel-less design. This year, for the first time, we saw two Mix series phone being launched by Xiaomi. The Mi Mix 2S was announced at the beginning of this year, while the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is launching on October 25. We already know that the phone has a slide-out mechanism for the front camera and is the first phone to support 5G (without any extra accessories).
Today, however, we got very interesting information about Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship. We cannot confirm it, but the Xiaomi Mix 3 could be the first smartphone to launch with the Snapdragon 855 processor. An image from Weibo revealed some major specs of the phone and we were surprised to see that the phone has Snapdragon 855 chipset. There is a 6.4-inch screen, a 3,850mAh battery underneath, 20MP + 16MP dual cameras on the back and up to 8GB RAM + 256GB storage.
Now, the Snapdragon 855 is yet to be announced officially by Qualcomm, and we are expecting it to be announced by the end of 2018. So, it is hard to say if the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will launch with the same processor in three days. In case it’s true, Xiaomi will become the first smartphone manufacturer to launch a phone with Snapdragon 855.
