We talked yesterday that the OnePlus 7 will be the first smartphone to come equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. After all, this revelation was made during the very presentation of the processor.
However, it seems that the Chinese manufacturer may have plans to ruin the OnePlus party. Just one day after Qualcomm’s event, a photo of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G model came along, accompanied by a pamphlet describing some features of the smartphone.

At the beginning of 2017, Xiaomi officially launched the design of 5G mobile phones. In September 2018, Xiaomi took the lead in opening up 5G signaling and data link connections, laying the foundation for 5G commercial use.
Xiaomi will participate in the first batch of 5G pre-commercial city field test launched by China Mobile in the first quarter of 2019, and will also launch the 5G version of Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 in Europe. The company will then provide the Xiaomi commercial terminal supporting China Mobile’s 5G network in the third quarter.
