Xiaomi Mi Play Global however, it is not a completely common global version that we are used to with Xiaomi smartphones. It lacks support for the B20 (800 MHz) LTE band. You will enjoy a fast 4G LTE network only in cities, outside of cities there will be a 3G connection.
For many users, however, this may not be an obstacle, in addition, due to the equipment, the smartphone is designed for less demanding. On the other hand, there is no language mutation to Slovak and Czech. The package contains an original European charger.

If you're looking for a compact smartphone, you don't have to
The Xiaomi Mi Play smartphone could be especially popular with people looking for something smaller. It has "only" 5,84 ″ displaywhich is a rarity at the time of 6 or more inch shovels. Narrow frames and a raindrop-shaped expression make it interesting in terms of design.
Xiaomi claims that they managed to fit the 5,84 ″ display into the construction of smartphones with a 5,1 ″ displaywhich is definitely admirable. The display got classic IPS panel with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels, ie FullHD +. The pixel density is based on the standard 432 ppi and the aspect ratio is 19: 9.
In the case of the new Xiaomi Mi Play, the manufacturer relied on a glass structure, which is not so common in this price category. The smartphone has a more luxurious impression, on the other hand it will be more prone to scratches and fingerprints. The front and back contain Corning Gorilla Glass.
Mi Play is produced in several colors - classic black, gradient blue (Dream Blue) and gradient gold (Twilight Gold). The dimensions of the smartphone are relatively compact today - 147.76 x 71.89 x 7.8 mm. The weight stopped at 150 grams.

Although the very name of the novelty suggests that it could be a gaming smartphone, due to the equipment, this cannot be claimed. After a long time, Xiaomi installed a chipset from MediaTek in his smartphone. Xiaomi Mi Play is the latest Helio P35 processor with eight cores clocked on 2,35 GHz.
The processor is made 12 nm manufacturing process and includes a dual-turbo CPU / GPU feature that can increase performance. This chipset is MediaTek's answer to the 14 nm Snapdragon 632 from Qualcomm. However, its performance is comparable to the older Snapdragon 625, which means that the smartphone is designed more for less demanding users.
The processor adds graphics unit IMG GE8320 clocked at 680 MHz. 4 GB RAM memory type LPDDR4x should be enough for a smooth multitasking run, as the MIUI 10 superstructure is optimized very well.
The newer emmc 5.1 memory chip got capacity 64 GB, which should be enough for every less demanding user. The microSD card slot is available as a hybrid Dual SIM slot.
Dual 12 MPx camera
The battery received an average capacity 3000 mAh. It charges at 5V / 2.0A via the microUSB connector. Like most new models in the Xiaomi Mi series, the new Mi Play does not include a 3,5 mm audio jack. But what we find here is fingerprint sensor on the back under the camera.
As is the standard today, it was mounted on the back dual camera with primary 12 MPx sensor. The sensor has a pixel size of 1.25μm, f / 2.2 aperture, automatic phase PDAF focusing and electronic image stabilization. Secondary 2 MPx sensor used for portrait photos with blurred background. The camera also has HDR, AI scenes and other features.
