MOMENTS after officially taking the wraps off the nearly borderless Mi MIX 2, Xiaomi unveiled another big-screen, high-end phone in the Mi Note 3 (click on this for its complete specs and prices).

It’s basically the Mi 6 all over again, only this time the screen stretches to 5.5 inches and the bezels on either side of the display have been shaved off for aesthetic and practical reasons. The result is a big phone that’s more pleasant to use single-handed than, say, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, despite both sporting virtually similar screen sizes.

Besides slimmed-down bezels on either side, the Xiaomi Mi Note 3, very much like the Mi 6, has an aluminum-and-glass body that curves around the edges, giving the phone a seamless look and feel that you associate with, well, a modern iPhone. Sorry, Xiaomi.

Two back-facing cameras sit flush with the rear bodywork, with the second camera having a zoom lens for getting closer to the action. Xiaomi says the Note 3 enjoys the same imaging setup you’ll find in the Mi 6, so it should be capable of taking nice portrait shots with some depth of field.

Additionally, the Note 3 comes with face-recognition tech for unlocking the unit using its selfie camera. There’s also a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor inside, coupled with 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of base storage — bit of a bummer considering the smaller Mi 6 is powered by a faster Snapdragon 835 chipset. The 3,500mAh battery fast charges over a USB-C connection.
