Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G will finally be available in Italy, making it the first 5G smartphone officially sold on our market and burning competitors for a few weeks. You can buy it starting from May 23rd only in the official Xiaomi shop at the price of 699 euros, a bit of what is expected, in Sapphire Blue and in the 6 / 64GB version. We remind you that Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G was announced last February at MWC 2019, where we had the opportunity to try it for a few minutes, and it is one of the first terminals with 5G connectivity for commercial use.

Xiaomi focused on a 5G solution as early as May 2016, creating a team to work on standards and start research on 5G. As one of the main players working on the 5G trials organized by the China Mobile operator, Xiaomi successfully tested the n78 signal connection in September 2018, and completed the mmWave (millimeter wave) signal test a month later. At that time, only a few smartphone manufacturers worldwide had successfully conducted these tests.
Always committed to bringing the best innovations to the market, Xiaomi has signed numerous 5G strategic partnerships with the main service providers around the world, such as 3, Sunrise, TIM, Vodafone and many others. The next step was to make 5G devices available to the largest possible number of consumers, and to achieve this goal Xiaomi has worked tirelessly with some of these operators since the early stages of development of the Mi MIX 3 5G. In May, Xiaomi, joining forces with Sunrise, marketed its Mi MIX 5G device in Switzerland.
