After a lot of wait and anticipation, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is finally here. This is the third iteration of the Mi Mix series and what we can consider as the biggest improvement is the camera performance. Apart from that, the Mi Mix series has always tried to keep the bezels to a minimum, which had created some inconveniences in the first two attempts. But this time, there seems to be another concept employed to minimize bezels.

Like what we saw on OPPO Find X and Vivo Nex have done to keep the bezels to a minimum, the Mi Mix 3 does a similar job but the latter has a magnetic slider while the other two had sliders powered by motors. Xiaomi claims a screen to body ratio of 93.4% in this device which is fairly impressive. As for other specs, the display is 6.4 inches and it’s an OLED screen with 1080p resolution.

There are altogether 4 cameras on this device. The front houses a 24 MP shooter alongside a 2 MP depth sensor and the back comes with two 12 MP wide angle and telephoto lenses. The camera features a night mode that lets you take long exposure shots just like what we saw on the P20 Pro. Additionally, the phone supports 960 fps slow-mo videos with automatic background music feature.
