The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 comes in four color variants – Onyx Black, Jade Green, Sapphire Blue, and a special Forbidden City Edition with a different kind of blue hue and gold engraving. So far only the black and green variants are available for purchase. Xiaomi has now announced that the Forbidden City Edition will go on sale in December.
The Mi MIX 3 Forbidden City Edition has a blue hue inspired by ceramic vases from the Chinese Dynasty era. It has a gold engraving of a mythical creature on its back and even comes with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Its retail box is different, featuring the same mythical creature. It also comes with a 24K gold figurine, a Xiaomi data card that gives you access to 10GB of high-speed data every month for three years and free data for 20 days in select countries. Like the regular variants, it also comes with a wireless charger which unfortunately is white.
Xiaomi says the Mi MIX 3 Forbidden City Edition will sell for ¥4999 (~$720) but has not revealed the exact date it will go on sale.
