Our Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 review video is up

Ricky, 21 January 2019

Smartphone bezels have been getting smaller and smaller, but one of the first smartphones to push these boundaries is the original Xiaomi Mi Mix. The Mi Mix 3 is the third iteration of the Mi Mix series that pushes the limit of bezels not by notches, nor below-the-display selfie cameras, but instead puts the camera literally behind the screen.

Well, it only hides behind the display when you aren’t using it and slides up when you, well, slide the phone open! As phone makers try to figure out the best way to make a full-screen phone, we get to see what kind of form factors they experiment with.

The Mi Mix 3 is a slider phone, revealing a dual front-facing camera when you slide the screen down. Since the phone itself doesn’t have face-unlock, there’s not really any need to slide the phone down until you want to take a selife – or you can slide the phone open to answer an incoming call.

There’s a 24MP selfie camera with a 2MP depth sensor for those portrait selfies. The main camera uses dual 12MP sensors: one wide and the other telephoto. The main camera has 4-axis OIS and large 1.4 micron pixels.

A 3,200 mAh battery powers the Snapdragon 845 CPU and large 6.39-inch AMOLED display. The phone does not have expandable storage, but it does come in generous 128GB or 256GB storage options.

Watch the review and let us know what you think of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3!
