Xiaomi has worked on developing 5G solutions since May 2016 by establishing a team to take a deep dive on 5G standards and to start exploratory research.

The Mi 9 houses a Snapdragon 855 processor and 3,300mAh battery that you'll be able to recharge in a hurry whether you plug in and use Qualcomm's QC4+ at 27W or use Xiaomi's new 20W fast wireless charging system that claims to safely charge the Mi from dead to full in 90 minutes.

With the official announcement of Mi MIX 3 5G, Xiaomi is now one of the first smartphone manufacturers to produce a 5G phone for commercial use.

The processor, which Pocket-lint tried and benchmarked using pre-production testing units at the end of previous year, delivers blisteringly fast performance and should make the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G one of the fastest smartphones on the market. At the ongoing MWC tech show in Barcelona, all the top smartphone companies showcased their first 5G smartphones. It has a 6.39 inch 1080 x 2340 pixel dense AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, OnePlus 5G also leverages Snapdragon X50 5G modem and Qualcomm RF front-end solutions. It runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie and is backed by same 3,200mAh battery.

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

Xiaomi fans will recognise most of the Mi Mix 3 5G specifications because they're very similar to the regular 4G Mi Mix 3 launched in October 2018, with the addition of 5G CPU, GPU and radios. Samsung also introduced two 5G smartphones - Galaxy Fold and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.

There are dual primary cameras with the primary camera being a 12MP one with a f/1.8 aperture and OIS and a 12MP telephoto camera. The 6GB RAM and 64 GB storage model of Xiaomi Mi 9 will be available starting at Euro 449 (or approx Rs 36,193). The front slider setup offers a 24MP+2MP camera setup with Artificial Intelligence support including AI scene detection, AI studio lighting, AI real-time video beautify and more.
