It all started back in 2016 when Xiaomi unveiled it’s first full-screen smartphone – Mi Mix. The handset was loved by a plethora of people.

At Forbidden City, Beijing, China, Xiaomi officially lifted the veil of the next iteration of its full-screen smartphone – Mi Mix 3.

The smartphone came up with a full-screen slider, dual camera setup on both sides. And with all the latest specifications you would expect from today’s flagship smartphone.

Design & Display

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 came up with a new full-screen slider design. The screen half slides back and forth with a click when you tap on to reveal the front camera. And when it shuts, the phone gives you 93.4% aspect ration at the front- which is literally amazing.

You people might be wondering about the mechanism and life of slider. It’s magnetic and has been tested more than 300,000 times to gauge the endurance. Moreover, you can also assign five different sounds to the sliding motion. There’s also am an option to add an action to the motion like you can pick up a call or launch an app. Excited right?

But such design has their own issues as well. Finding a case for such design won’t be that easy but the company has included one in the box. The frame of the device is built out of 7000-series aluminum alloy with the tapered ceramic back.
The device is equipped with  6.4″ AMOLED display screen with FHD+ resolution. It also has the always-on display functionality.

Camera

This is one of the highlighting section of this newly launched “all screen” smartphone from Xiaomi. There are a total of four cameras in this unit – two on either side of the screen.

But at a glance, you won’t be able to see the front dual camera setup – thanks to the full slider design.

There’s one main 24MP sensor and one 2MP sensor for depth perception in portrait shots. The former sensor is the Sony IMX576 one, which according to the company can achieve 1.8µm pixel size by 4-pixel binning in low-light environments. It can produce good pictures in those low-light scenarios but will effectively reduce the resolution to 6MP.

The rear dual-camera setup includes 12MP plus 12MP setup. The primary one is the Sony IMX363 with 1.4µm pixel size and f/1.8 lens, while the secondary telephoto cam has f/2.4 aperture and 1.0µm pixel size.

The camera in this unit is really great as it also brings the new Night Mode. Thanks to that you can take hand hand-held long exposure shots, Huawei has already introduced this feature earlier this year.
