The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Forbidden City Edition is going on sale in December (the company didn’t specify an exact date). It will cost CNY 5,000 ($720/€630). That’s the same price as the 8/256GB model (the base 6/128GB model is CNY 3,300).
This special edition will pack 10GB of RAM (the first model in the Mix 3 lineup to do so). Also, it’s a different kind of blue – it’s inspired by the ceramic vases of one of the ruling dynasties of China. Fitting as the back of the phone is made of ceramic.
Also, there’s a gold inlay of a mythical create on the back of the phone. The Forbidden City retail package will come with a cool case that features an even bigger rendition of the beast and you’ll get a statuette of it, a scale version of those found in the eponymous city (the statuette is plated with 24K gold).
The case also includes a 10W wireless charger, but all Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 models have it.
