The 2019 edition of the Mobile World Congress is here and Xiaomi has just launched the world's first commercially-available 5G-ready smartphone at the event.
As rumoured back in early December 2018, the Chinese smartphone giant has just launched a 5G-ready version of its Mi Mix 3 smartphone. As the name suggests, everything we had on the original Mi Mix 3 remains unchanged here, apart from the fact that the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 mobile platform with the Snapdragon X50 modem.

The phone will not be available right away though, with sales beginning only in May 2018. Xiaomi has priced the phone at EUR 599 which does come across as competitive, but we don't have any other 5G phones out there in the market to point towards as a reference, just yet.
What we also don't know yet are the RAM and storage variants the Mi Mix 3 5G will be available in.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3: display, camera specifications and features
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a massive 6.39-inch Full HD Plus AMOLED 19.5:9 aspect ratio display sporting a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels that runs from edge to edge, unlike the previous Mi Mix devices that featured a thick bezel (chin) below the display that also included the sensors and the front-facing camera.
The rear camera setup includes a 12 MP + 12 MP AI enabled camera, with one sporting a wide-angle lens with an f/1.8 aperture and the second a telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture.
The front-facing camera gets a 24 MP + 2 MP setup with the second camera being used to click bokeh images in Portrait mode.
With support for QuickCharge 4 Plus, the Mi Mix 3 5G also gets a 3,800 mAh battery unit.
