China's Xiaomi unveils 5G smartphone for $680

"We think this is one of the most competitive prices for a 5G smartphone today and it's going to be available very, very soon", Sung said.

What's incredible about the 5G Mi Mix 3 is its price, something Xiaomi always excelled at.

That would likely translate into just around $600 were the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G to ever come to the USA, which once again is sadly not the case based on what we know and can reasonably assume. This means the Mi Mix 5G is capable of downloading a 15-minute 1080p (256MB) video in a second or 26 MP3 files (320Kbps) in a second.

It is the same as Mi MIX 3, but faster and with 5G modem.

It's set to support Three's forthcoming 5G network in the United Kingdom as well as Orange in wider European markets. In China, there are three models of the Mi Mix 3.

The company also launched its flagship device called the Mi 9.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 price in the global markets has been set at Euro 449 (roughly Rs. 36,200) for the base 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant, while the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model will be available at Euro 499 (roughly Rs. 40,200). Samsung also introduced two 5G smartphones - Galaxy Fold and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. However, Xiaomi is the first company which has announced the pricing and availability of its 5G-ready smartphone. The X50 5G modem will generate a significant amount of heat, to which Xiaomi states that a hybrid cooling system is in place to act as a deterrent. You get either 6, 8 or 10 GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage with no microSD card expansion.

The new Xiaomi Mi 9 has a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen with a tiny teardrop notch to house the front camera, protected by Gorilla Glass 6. It's just a 5G version of it, the one we've been expecting for months.
