Xiaomi launches the new Mi Mix 3

Xiaomi launches the new Mi Mix 3

Aside from helping to pioneer the bezel-less approach, the new handset also follows Oppo's Find X in supporting a whopping 10GB of RAM. After some advancements and tweaks done to the original design, Xiaomi has now unveiled the new Mi MIX 3 at the Forbidden City. The front camera has been put on a slider. It is a magnetic unit that slides up on the top of the device.

Xiaomi said that the slider can be customised to activate different functions such as open app drawer, make call, take selfie etc.

It has a ceramic back and comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

No matter how you feel about the lack of the notch, the screen-to-body ratio of 93.4% is an impressive one, thanks in part to the lack of a chin at the bottom of the display when compared with phones from other manufacturers.

Apple pioneered the notch design that's become so common lately in smartphones but a couple companies have come out with solutions to do away with the notch entirely. The pixel density is of 403 ppi.

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 won't come to the USA, let's just get that out of the way. This is not the first smartphone with 10 GB RAM.

Xiaomi, a Chinese smartphone maker has officially launched the third generation bezel-less smartphone in the Chinese market today. On the front, a 24-megapixel Sony sensor is paired with a 2-megapixel camera that will provide bokeh effects to selfies. The cameras have to go somewhere though, and this is where the slider comes into play. At the rear, it houses 12-megapixel and 12-megapixel with Sony IMX363 sensor and f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture respectively. Slo-mo video at 960 frames per second is now included in the camera settings.

The front 24MP camera features the same slate of AI features that Xiaomi is offering in the Mix 2S, and the secondary 2MP lens is created to facilitate depth of field. It's good to see Xiaomi has finally solved the selfie camera conundrum by housing it in the sliding camera module. During pixel binning, the resolution is reduced to 6 MP.

The company claims that the Mi Mix 3 has 108 rating on the popular DXOMark camera benchmark. Mi Mix 3 is expected to run on Android 9 Pie out of the box. It packs a 3,850 mAh Battery with Fast Charging. Xiaomi says that the slider, apart from opening up cameras, also acts as a customizable shortcut action for many tasks.

Inside, the Mi Mix 3 is pretty much your standard high-end Chinese flagship. However, the current variants don't support 5G. The company has announced that the price of Rs 17,999 is for a limited period, so it might increase later. It does have a Type-C USB to 3.5mm audio jack adapter.

The smartphone has Bluetooth 5.0. The variant with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage is priced at $100 more ($575). The device will launch in India and in other regions later in November but the price for the same hasn't been revealed yet.
