You’re not going to find a camera notch here, as the slider design allows the ceramic-clad Mi Mix 3 to maintain a high screen/body ratio. In fact, Xiaomi claims a 93.4 percent screen/body ratio for its 6.39-inch AMOLED screen (2,340 x 1,080, 19.5:9 screen ratio).
In terms of photography, Pop the slider out and you’ll find a 24MP+2MP dual-camera pairing. This means you’ve got high-resolution daytime snaps, pixel-binned night-time shots, and the ability to create those ever-popular portrait shots. Switch to the main cameras and you’ve got a 12MP+12MP telephoto pairing. The primary shooter is a f/1.8 camera with 1.4-micron pixels, while the telephoto camera has a smaller f/2.4 aperture and 1.0-micron pixels.
As for core specifications, you’ll be getting a Snapdragon 845 chipset, up to 10GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage, and a 3,200mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+.
