As we have already told you that Xiaomi will officially announce Mi MIX 2 in September.

The co-founder of Xiaomi, Lin Bin, on Weibo has come up with a teaser image of the Xiaomi Mi Note 3 with a caption that says if users wanted the Mix Mix 2 or a larger Mi 6.

That said, we have now spotted some images of the packaging box of the Mi Note 3. But, the teaser gives a confirmation that Xiaomi will also launch one more smartphone besides Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 at the Beijing event. Until now, all the rumours suggested that Mi Note 3 will be powered by the Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 835 chipset.

If we talk about Mi MIX 2 specifications, it will have a bezel-less display. The Mi Note 2 was launched in November 2016. Companys co-founder Lin Bin has also announced this via teaser video.

The retail box is black and is sealed, so this is probably a unit shipped out to licensed retailers ahead of the launch or a unit from Xiaomi's own store. It is expected to come in two variants - 6GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM with 256GB of internal storage, with no provision for additional storage. Xiaomi will be looking to take the thunder from Apple in releasing an impressive device with powerful features, but while the Mix 2 will not be the most sought-after phone like the iPhone 8 will be, it can still rival Apple in terms of the technology and the performance that it houses.

Yesterday, we had reported that Xiaomi plans to launch the Mi Note 3 alongside the Mi MIX 2. In addition, the display also features a full HD pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920 and a pixel density of 386. It shows that the Mi Note 3 will come with a glossy back cover and in blue colour. The device will run MIUI 9 outright.

How much will the Mi Note 3 cost?

Last but not least, Mi Note 3's rear side will be equipped with a 12MP dual camera setup which features dual-LED, PDAF, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama. As per the rumours, the 6GB RAM variant is expected to be priced around $599 which roughly translates to Rs 38,893.
