Here is the unboxing of Xiaomi Mi Note 3, now this series has not yet been launched in India, and probably will never be, but if interested you can buy it from International stores. The Mi Note 3 was launched in China recently and price starts from $397 (approx Rs. 26K).

Inside the box there is the handset, user guide, silicon case, SIM ejector PIN, USB Type C to 3.5mm audio adapter, USB to USB Type C data cable and fast charger 12V / 1.5A. There is protective film on the front as well as on the back.

The Mi Note 3 built and finishing is very good, using metal frame, premium looks and comfortable to use, though a bit slippery cause of the back glass. This handset is powered by Snapdragon 660 octa core processor (64 bit) and packed with 12MP + 12MP cameras on the back (dual cameras) with a f/1.8 aperture.

This is a dual SIM handset with 4G VoLTE support. It is running MIUI 8 based on Android Nougat and it is Chinese MIUI, though there is a option to choose English language however there is no Google Play Store pre-installed.

You can use Mi App and download important apps, you can also use Mi App, search for Google, you will then see a Google App option in Chinese, select that and it will install the Google services and important files to run Google and needed by Google Play, and after that Google Play will be installed.

Xiaomi Mi Note 3 unboxing

Unfortunately Google Play did not work, it got struck at the Google account creating screen, and without Google account you cannot run some specific Google Apps, otherwise there is no issue.

This Mi Note is not to be confused with Redmi Note series that is available in India, both are different. This variant I got comes with 6GB RAM and 64GB ROM. It packs a 3500 mAh battery. There is LED notification, there is dual SIM slot, you need 2x nano SIM’s there is no micro SD slot and OTG is supported. The home button on the front doubles up as finger print sensor, there is IR blaster too.

Screen is 5.5 inches, 2.5D curved glass and supporting 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution. Full review coming soon.
