$407 Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G - Snapdragon 855 6GB RAM 128GB ROM

Deal Link:
Price:
407
Retailer:
AliExpress
This is an 11.11 Deal much like the other threads. Did some digging and found this gem. Price point for the chipset is really really hot. That and the fact it comes with a notchless screen, ceramic backplate, decently sized battery

Some drawbacks though (no headphone jack, basic deal rear cameras, single sim, non expandable storage, netflix needs to be sideloaded, no support on XDA)

Band compatibility is sometime to watch for as well. You're 2/3 LTE Bands with rogers

Fair enough but like Viper has said in the past, band 12 is not really necessary (for rogers anyways). I havent ever seen my phone on band 12

Whats that site to see if it works with your provider? I am with Freedom so I want to see.

Also, I read somewhere its on a phone by phone basis on whether itll work or not with your provider?

For Mi Mix 3, it's better to buy from JD.com since there' too much markup on this device.
They're an official retailer, unlike Aliexpress, and they sell without 3rd party re-seller markup.

The Chinese version of the phone (not global version) has all the bands you need in Canada:
B1 / B2 / B3 / B4 / B5 / B7 / B8 / B12 / B17 / B20

JD.com is only in Chinese, but you can use Google Translate to navigate it.
They ship worldwide through UPS with an additional $10 brokerage fee + GST/PST when landing in Canada.
They take only MasterCard last time I checked, not sure about VISA.

Mi Mix 3 is regularly sold at $320USD there, since Xiaomi dropped the price earlier this year.
For 11.11 it's being sold at $280USD, so just keep your eyes peeled for stock.

Do not be mistaken, this is not the Mi Mix 3, rather Mi Mix 3 5G. this is the 855 variant/ upgrade to the mimix3

By the way, don't forget to play their 11.11 board game.
I manage to win a $15 off $150 coupon, but I'm sure there'll be more coupons to come.

my coworker has this phone. its pretty sick. he got a free qi charger and a case in the box as well. besides the camera, everything is super solid with the phone and the sliding mechanism is super satisfying.

Thanks for sharing. Can you please take a screenshot so we see what you're seeing? Also helpful if you add the currency after the price amount that you quote (whether it is CAD or USD)

Following your link, the lowest current price is $642.87 CAD ($469.54 CAD if you use coupon "246810" to get $173.33 CAD off)

The future price (11.11 sale) is shown as $412.10 CAD

Good price, but why do you need 5G in Canada?
