Xiaomi Mi Note 3 may arrive by the end of this month; to feature Samsung-made QHD panel

Fans of Xiaomi's Mi Note line-up may have a reason to rejoice as the latest report by Chinese website MyDrivers.com suggests the company may launch the Mi Note 3 phablet as soon as this month in China. The Mi Note 2 was launched in November 2016, but its successor may come sooner.



Xiaomi may defer the launch to early September if it does not happen this month.

In terms of specifications, the Mi Note 3 is expected to pack in the Qualcomm Snadragon 835 processor and come with 6 GB of RAM. However, this time round Xiaomi is rumoured to have ditched LG as the makers of the display for the phone. The Mi Note 3 display is expected to be a QHD Super AMOLED panel made by Samsung.

The Xiaomi Note 2 which launched last year did not come to India. However, the phone came with a 5.7-inch AMOLED display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 along with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. It was also available in a 4 GB version with 64 GB of storage. It featured a 22.5 MP rear camera with a f/2.0 aperture, and a 8 MP front-facing unit.

The report also comes days after Xiaomi revealed the roll-out schedule of MIUI 9 for the various devices. The company will roll out the updates to Mi 6 and Redmi Note 4X on 11 August. The report also revealed that 11 more Xiaomi devices will receive MIUI 9 by 25 August.

The devices expected to receive the update include the Mi Max, Mi Max 2, Redmi 4X, Mi Mix, Mi Note 2, Mi 5, Mi 5s and 5s Plus, Mi 4s and 4c and Mi 5c.
