Xiaomi Mi Note 3 Configuration Leaks, Packs Snapdragon 660 Processor and 6GB RAM

by Habeeb Onawole 13

Earlier today it was revealed that the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 will be announced alongside the Mi MIX 2, in a fashion similar to last year. Although there is still a few days from the launch date (September 11), we won’t have to wait till then before knowing the specification details of the Mi Note 3, as they have been leaked online.

The teaser poster for the Mi Note 3 launch shows Xiaomi’s brand ambassador for the Mi 5X, Wu Yifan, holding a dual camera phone that looks like the Mi 6. So

According to the leaked specs, the Mi Note 3 will have a 5.5-inch display. Not only is it smaller than the 5.7-inch display of the Mi Note 2, there is no mention of it being curved.

Since there is no Snapdragon 836, most folks will expect the Mi Note 3 to come with the Snapdragon 835. Sorry, to disappoint but that won’t be happening if these specifications are true. Instead, Xiaomi has settled for the next chip in line, the Snapdragon 660 mobile platform. As consolation, it will keep the 6GB of RAM.

The Mi Note 3 will be available in either 64GB or 128GB variants, though, there is no mention of a MicroSD card slot. Since the display has been cut down, Xiaomi has also decided to shave off the battery capacity to 3500mAh but have added Quick Charge 4.0 support. We hope it comes with a supported charger.

The Mi Note 3 will also come with dual rear cameras. The cameras will be the same configuration as that of the Mi 6. So you get two 12MP cameras in the wide-angle lens + telephoto lens configuration. The front camera is said to be a 16MP sensor.

The Mi Note 3 will have a four-curved glass body and an aerospace grade aluminium frame. It will have a special face unlock feature that uses a smart identification system with a sort of RGB sensor to identify the face of the owner. The Mi Note 3 will also have NFC support.

Pricing details were not provided. One feature we hope Xiaomi keeps from the Mi Note 2 is global LTE support.

    Meh, seriously no S835 for a flagship is disapointing…

  • nolimitsdesigns

    I can’t believe this is accurate. Not just the SD660 but the 5.5″ screen too. Both previous Notes were 5.7″ and I can’t see them changing that and still calling it a Note.

    • Joe Johnson

      Yes it seems strange but we will know in a few days. If it’s true though people will not buy. Me I’ll get the Mix 2 if it has global lte or Huawei Mate 10!

    • Flipp0

      Agree. This sounds more like Redmi Pro 2.

  • Hoping this isn’t true as it isn’t consistent with Xiaomi’s design.
    Also, using 660 doesn’t sound like a great move either.

    • Robert

      I also agree….The Mi Note 2 will be a better buy… Xiaomi may learn its lesson and make the Note 4 better with the SD845, bigger screen than 5.5, bigger battery, ect… I will wait.

      • Sadly, leaks have confirmed the SoC to be 660.
        But maybe Xiaomi is testing the waters with this, they might have more competitive pricing for this one as Mi 6 and the Mix 2 remain on the throne as flagship offerings.

    I bet the model uses am iPhone as his daily driver not mi note 3 with sd660 and mediocre cameras

  • Sansa

    660 makes no sense at all.

  • Saku

    The 6gb variant will probably be 660 and the 8gb variant will have 835. Xiaomi killing their Note flagship series is absurd, they are better than that.

  • androwin

    Isn’t this supposed to be a Mi Max (series) specs?

    With mid-tier chip I don’t see people paying more than $300 for this phone considering OP5 (which has SD835) is already selling for about $400, and people can get the last year’s high-end (SD821) phones for about the same price or even less than that!


    • Albino

      That’s what i hope too, i liked the specs of it, but for more than 300 it’s just not worth it.

  • Blue Gum

    Specs are extremely similar to the Vivo X20.
