Xiaomi just announced the third generation of the Mi Mix series. Xiaomi launched the device at an event in Beijing, China. The company is boasting the bezel-less display features, but without the notch. Instead, it is going with the Vivo apex-styled motorized slider which houses the front camera.
The technology used by Xiaomi is similar to that of Vivo and Oppo, but slightly different too. The motorized slider is magnetic and it is even programmed for functions such as answering calls. That array gives it a claimed 93.4 percent screen-to-body ratio and a full 6.4-inch 1080p AMOLED display. The slider is good for 300,000 cycles, according to Xiaomi’s lab testing.
Mi Mix 3 Specifications
For starters, the flagship phone by Xiaomi runs on Snapdragon 845 and has got up to 10 GB RAM in the highest end model. The Mi Mix 3 has four cameras – a 24-megapixel front camera paired with a two-megapixel sensor and on the back, a dual camera array with two 12-megapixel cameras.
The phone also has an “AI” Button on the left side, which is the first time we are seeing in a Xiaomi phone. That awakens its Xiao Ai voice assistant, but since it only supports Chinese don’t expect to see that on worldwide models.
The highest end version of this phone, along with 10 GB RAM, packs 256 GB of storage and is priced at RMB 4,999, or $720. Other less expensive options include 6GB + 128GB for RMB 3,299 ($475), 8GB +128G for RMB 3,599 ($520) and 8GB + 256GB for RMB 3,999 ($575). The company also plans to introduce a 5G version in Europe sometime early next year.
