Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 Smartphone has been finally launched at its Beijing event on Thursday. The biggest change that Xiaomi brought in this device compared to its predecessor, device comes with a magnetic sliding front camera, a dual vertical camera setup, two cameras at the front, and a true bezel-less display. The Mi Mix 3 smartphone sports no display notch, and negligible chin at the bottom either.
If we talk about the other specifications of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is built around a 6.4” AMOLED screen and the company claims a massive 93.4% screen-to-body ratio and Full HD+ resolution. The rear part is mounted on a magnetic slider that reveals a 24 MP + 2 MP front combo when slid out. The main sensor here is the Sony IMX576, which the company claims can achieve 1.8µm pixel size by 4-pixel binning in low-light environments. Its resolution is effectively reduced to 6MP in those conditions though.
Another dual camera sits on the back – 12 MP + 12 MP, the primary sensor being Sony IMX363 with 1.4µm pixel size and f/1.8 lens, while the secondary telephoto cam has f/2.4 aperture and 1.0µm pixel size.
The device features Snapdragon 845, coupled with 6GB, 8GB or 10GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. There’s no card slot for memory expansion though, nor a 3.5 mm audio jack. You do get fast wired charging through the USB-C port as well as decent 10W wireless charging.
The Mi Mix 3 will also get a 5G version, although that’s only coming in Q1 of 2019. Xiaomi did confirm Europe will receive it but hasn’t mentioned any other markets yet.
