The Mi Mix 3 has been priced at 599 euros (Rs 48,258 approx.) while the new Mi 9 will come in at 449 euros (Rs 36,173 approx.) for the 6GB+64GB variant and 499 euros (Rs 40,202 approx.) for the 8GB+128GB variant.

Additionally, Xiaomi launched the Mi LED Smart Bulb at its pre-MWC conference with a price tag of Euro 19.9 (roughly Rs. 1.600). Taking advantage of the crowd that has gathered at Barcelona for MWC 2019, Xiaomi announced its two premium phones that will land in Europe to give their American friends reason to be jealous. On the back of the Mi Mix 3 5G is a dual-lens camera, both with 12MP. The Mi 9 packs a 6.4-inch screen, in-screen fingerprint sensor, sapphire glass lens covers over the rear "AI triple-camera" module - which includes a 48MP Sony camera - and a mesmerizing reflective nano-laser engraved holographic pattern and nano-coating to produce a rainbowed halo effect on the Mi 9's Gorilla Glass 5 back that I can not stop staring at. It is powered by the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC along with an Snapdragon X50 5G modem that is touted to deliver 20 times sustained performance. Xiaomi says the new system has been certified safe by TÜV Rheinland and announced three 20W wireless chargers to use it with: a 20W Mi Wireless Charging Pad, 20W wireless auto charger, and a 10,000 mAh wireless power bank.

The body is made of ceramic, has a dedicated Google assistant button on the left-hand side of the phone, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the rear. Of course, Xiaomi didn't forget to highlight that Mi 9 has been ranked quite highly by DxOMark. The phone also supports 20W super-fast wireless charging. The front camera is a 20MP lens embedded in a water-drop style notch.
