Rumors and leaks about the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 have appeared regularly for several months but fortunately came to an end, because the smartphone was officially presented in China. Ladies and Gentlemen, here is the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 – I present its specification, possibilities and, of course, the prices of individual variants.
Large AMOLED screen and retractable cameras
Let’s start with the basics. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has been equipped with a large, almost frameless screen without the notch and no other fancies of this type (I remind you that the holes are coming ). It has a diagonal of 6.39 inches, Full HD + resolution (2340 × 1080) and an aspect ratio of 19.5: 9. Xiaomi claims that the panel occupies 93.4% of the front, and the chin only has 4.5mm.
No cut-out in the screen raises the question – where does the front camera? Of course, we know the answer, because Xiaomi has praised him some time ago:
A dual selfie camera (24MP Sony IMX576 + 2MP) has been mounted in a sliding part of the housing. The solution is not new, because OPPO and Vivo have done it in a similar way, but Xiaomi has found a way to stand out. Devices must be put out yourself, so there is no mechanism like in competition products. This is nothing but a slider that was once very popular in mobile phones, which Xiaomi emphasized at the conference. The manufacturer added that the phone should survive 300,000 protrusions, which should be enough for almost everyone.
When it comes to the main cameras, the user can also count on a dual camera, in a 12MP Sony IMX363 configuration with f / 1.8 and 12MP light with f / 2.4 light. So we have a classic, main camera for the best photos in all conditions and a telephoto for portrait photos. Xiaomi also boasts Artificial Intelligence, but let me skip these clichés. I will add that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 can record slow-motion movies at 960 fps.
DxOMark assessed the photographic possibilities of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 at 103 points, with the same camera at 108 points. Meanwhile, Xiaomi assured at the conference that Mi Mix 3 is doing better night pics from P20 Pro. See the sample comparison prepared by the manufacturer:
Processor, RAM, and ROM
There is no big surprise about the processor used. Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is powered by the well-known Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip with Adreno 630 graphics. There is a maximum of 10GB of RAM, the Mi Mix 3 is the second after Black Shark Helo with this amount of memory. Of course, this is the maximum value and weaker version with 6GB of RAM, and at least 128GB of built-in memory has been prepared for user files.
What else is worth knowing about Mi Mix 3?
As for the fingerprint reader, the basic variant of the smartphone incorporates an ID scanner on the back as on the previous MIX 2S . Present in the appeal a Dual SIM module , NFC connectivity and the much talked physical button to call up the AI assistant on board the top of the range. The battery is a 3700mAh unit with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ quick charge support. Do not miss the support for fast wireless charging (10W) as already seen on the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.
The operating system is Android 8.1 Oreo customized with the proprietary interface MIUI 10 (with the subsequent update to Pie) that on this terminal unleashes its full vocation for the gestures that, therefore, allow a really full screen use of the display.
Finally, it ends with the long-awaited support for the new 5G connectivity standard; as expected, the company has announced a new version of the flagship, which will debut during Q1 2019.
