A while ago, we looked at a brand new smartphone from Xiaomi – it is the latest Mi MIX 3. The Xiaomi Mi MIX series of smartphone blends art into smartphones. By doing so, many new, experimental technologies are implemented to make that device artsy. The Mi MIX 3 is no different here.
The new Mi MIX 3 comes with a slider design which is held by a rail on each side and snaps into place with the help of neodymium magnets. It creates a satisfying click to close and open too.
The purpose of that slider mechanism is to achieve a higher screen-to-body ratio by hiding the selfie camera elsewhere. The mission to achieve a high screen-to-body ratio is indeed important for the Xiaomi Mi MIX series as the first ever Mi MIX was aimed to achieve just that.
The Mi MIX 3 obviously comes with the latest and greatest specs as well. It has a 6.39-inch screen with 2340×1080 pixels in resolution and higher than 90% screen-to-body ratio thanks to its near all-screen display. Equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, the Mi MIX 3 is definitely beautiful yet powerful at the same time.
It also comes with a dual rear-facing camera setup as it has a 12MP f/1.8 main camera together with another 12MP telephoto camera. As for selfies, the Mi MIX 3 also a dual camera setup here with a 24MP main camera and another 2MP depth sensor. By having a depth sensor for selfie, it can create a lot of interesting effects.
However since the Mi MIX 3 is literally two pieces connected together, the battery size took a hit and is only rated at 3,200mAh.
Starting from 12th January 2019, Mi MIX 3 will be available in Onyx Black for RM 2199; Jade Green and Sapphire Blue for RM 2299. All colour options will be available in 6GB + 128GB configuration. Mi MIX 3 will be available online at Lazada Xiaomi Flagship Store and Shopee Mi Official Store, as well as offline at Authorised Mi Stores.
Also, the Mi MIX 3 does come with a wireless charger in the box too.
