The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a true all screen smartphones straight of the future with new slider feature. You maually slide the display down to expose the selfie camera, which does make it a bit thicker and heavier them average phone. This is possible due to sliding mechanism that contain the dual front camera and serval camera. The panel comes from Samsung, which is well-known for its very good OLED displays. This is first time in smartphone with 100% screen to ratio this phone deservers a prominent entry.
Mi Mix 3 has a resolution of 2340×1080 pixels in 19:5:9 format. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is powered by Qualcomm’s current high end chipset Snapdragon 845 with 10GB of RAM and Adreno 630. The back side of this smartphone contain active fingerprint sensor, a dual main camera with a resolution of 12 MP each and supporting for Qi charging, the wireless charging system via electromagnetic induction.
The Mi Mix 3 will steal your attention to its massive screen which Xiaomi says full 100 percent screen to body ratio. This is only possible without notch and front camera hidden inside a slide up section, which you flip into view using thumb. Mi Mix 3 innovatively combines magnetic power and slider structure to create a magnetic power rail design. It uses a neodymium iron boron permanent magnet called magnetic king. It is difficult to maintain the slider in the middle of the slide rail. If you push your hand down or up, you will slide to the end. The life of the slider screen can reach 300,000 times, which is much higher than the 100,000 times of the ordinary slide phone.
Xiaomi Even includes a 10W fast wireless charging pad in box alongside an 18W fast charging wired USB-C adapter. The Onyx Black model is impressively well-engineered though; with a tight tolerance along that sliding display and exceptional levels of fit and finish elsewhere too. Add a mechanism like the one on the Mix 3, however, and there’s inevitably going to be an added amount of heft that has to be placed upon the design.
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has primary dual camera with dual 12 megapixel senor with 4 axis OIS and 2x lossless optical zoom. In normal shooting you will see much greater dynamic range and details from the main 12 megapixel sensor compared to the secondary 2x zoom sensor. Image quality is superb overall with addition AI assistance doing little in the way of improving the base image and sometimes in contrast level in photo. Yanking the screen down exposes the dual front-facing cameras: a 24MP f/2.2 main lens and 2MP depth sensor that enables portrait mode and similar selective-focus photography.
A future update (in select markets) will enable facial recognition to unlock the phone, but until then, users have the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor to make do.
So ultimately, the price of Mi Mix 3 has two distinct points: its slider build and as per usual with Xiaomi, a really good deal. The entry model of the Mi Mix 3, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, for $474 (approx. Rs), which is not even half of what Apple, Samsung and Huawei charges for their top phones. Mi Mix 3 with a crazy 10GB of RAM along with 256GB of storage, the price is $719 (approx. Rs), still roughly $300 cheaper than the base models of Huawei’s latest. In the sales set of each version, there will be a 10W wireless charger. You can buy this smartphone from gearbest website.
