The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is here – The device features an almost all-display design with a non-motorised sliding camera module that houses dual front-facing cameras. Meanwhile, the rear-facing cameras borrow that Apple look and feel.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 features a Snapdragon 845 chipset, up to 10GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage, and a 3,200mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+.
Other noteworthy specs include 10-watt wireless charging, dual frequency GPS, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB Type-C (no headphone jack), and a rear fingerprint scanner.
At the front, a 24MP camera features the same slate of AI features that Xiaomi is offering in the Mix 2S, and the secondary 2MP lens is designed to facilitate the depth of field.
At the back, the primary 12MP camera with 1.4-micron pixels is joined by a 12MP telephoto lens, and it has OIS, portrait mode, and AI scene detection. The camera is also able to shoot 960fps slow-motion video, and with the Mix 3 getting a score of 103 on DxOMark, it is Xiaomi’s most capable shooter thus far.
Xiaomi is set to launch a model in European markets next year that will offer a 5G NR modem. Xiaomi is also jumping on the Android Pie bandwagon, as the Mi Mix 3 ships with MIUI 10 atop Google’s latest update.
Prices start at 3,299 yuan (~$475) for the 6GB+128GB model, 3,599 yuan (~$518) for the 8GB/128GB variant, and 3,999 yuan (~$576) for the 8GB/256GB model. All models will also include a 10-watt wireless charging pad.
The firm is also selling a Forbidden City Special Edition model, with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for 4,999 yuan (~$720). This model also seems to offer 10GB of monthly data for three years, which would be a pretty handy addition.
The phone will make its debut in global markets, starting with India, and we should know more on this front in the coming months. The Mi Mix 3 will be available in Onyx Black, Jade Green, and Sapphire Blue.
