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. Currently, we are in the market where every OEM is coming up with either a notch or pop-up camera design. But today, Xiaomi showed what a true “all-screen” phone actually means.
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.
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.
