Dell Mini 3iX surfaces in Brazil, ready for US 3G bands

updated 12:00 am EST, Tue November 3, 2009

Device similar to 3i launched in China

Dell's Android-based Mini 3iX has surfaced in Brazil with support for Wi-Fi and 3G UMTS/HSDPA on 850MHz, 1900MHz and 2100MHz bands, according to photos posted on the Brazilian site CelularCafe. The integration of 850MHz 3G components adds evidence to rumors suggesting Dell is planning to bring its Mini 3i smartphone design to the US market.

The earlier rumors claimed the build quality of the US version should be improved, while the 3 megapixel camera will be swapped for a 5 megapixel variant. The Brazilian leak, however, claims the South American version retains the same camera as the Chinese 3i, although the case is clearly redesigned.

The Mini 3iX reportedly features a 3.5-inch touchcreen with 640x360 resolution, GPS, Exchange support, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, and a MicroSD slot. Interface screenshots show a different style than the Ophone design used in the Chinese 3i, with a layout closer to the stock Android configuration.

The Mini 3iX has yet to be officially announced in Brazil. Carrier and pricing information remain unknown. [via Unwired View]
