The processor, which Pocket-lint tried and benchmarked using pre-production testing units at the end of past year, delivers blisteringly fast performance and should make the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G one of the fastest smartphones on the market.

The phone has a 6.39-inch AMOLED screen with 2340×1080 resolution, 600-nits brightness featuring a small waterdrop notch.

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.

For now, there is no certain information on the weight or dimensions of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, which is a bit tense moment, after all the 4G variant was a bit bulky. We don't know the United Kingdom price of the Galaxy S10 5G yet, but it's likely to be at least double that, as are some other early 5G phones, so this could be an affordable way to get superfast mobile data. It is worth noting that Xiaomi Mall provides accident protection service for the Xiaomi Mi 9 at a price of 299 yuan ($45).

Specs-wise the Mi 9, which is the Chinese firm's follow-up to its 2018 Mi 8, features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a dual camera with optical zoom. On the camera front, the phone boasts a triple-camera setup on the back with a 48MP main camera, a 16MP ultra-wide sensor and 12MP 2x optical zoom lens. It runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie and is backed by same 3,200mAh battery.

Pre-orders for the Mi 9 in Spain have already been started through Authorised Mi Stores, Mi.com, Cdiscount, Darty, and Fnac. Xiaomi has upgraded the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 to its successor Snapdragon 855. It also has an under-display fingerprint sensor for unlocking the smartphone. You also get wireless charging, fast wired charging, type C connector, dedicated Google Assistant Button and the magnetic slide system to reveal the cameras. The three colors available will be Piano Black, Ocean Blue, and Lavendar Violet, all with that darling halo-making nano-coating on the back to turn that one shade into a rainbow.
