We’ve seen numerous pictures showcasing the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, but is it more than just a slider phone? Well, the Chinese brand has answered your questions by launching the device today.
You’re not going to find a camera notch here, as the slider design allows the Mi Mix 3 to maintain a high screen/body ratio. In fact, Xiaomi claims a 93.4 percent screen/body ratio for its 6.39-inch AMOLED screen (2,340 x 1,080, 19.5:9 screen ratio). The company is also allowing users to choose one of several sounds when opening the slider, such as swords clashing. Hopefully it doesn’t get too annoying after the first few times…
Pop the slider out and you’ll find a 24MP+2MP dual-camera pairing. This means you’ve got high-resolution daytime snaps, pixel-binned night-time shots, and the ability to create those ever-popular portrait shots.
Switch to the main cameras and you’ve got a 12MP+12MP telephoto pairing. The primary shooter is an f/1.8 camera with 1.4 micron pixels, while the telephoto camera has a smaller f/2.4 aperture and 1.0 micron pixels.
The Mi Mix 3 has also achieved a score of 103 on DxOMark, hitting 108 for photos and 93 for videos, according to the Chinese brand. This is the same overall score as the Galaxy Note 9 and HTC U12 Plus, but below the iPhone XS Max and Huawei P20 Pro.
Xiaomi has also touted the new phone’s low-light capabilities, using multi-frame noise reduction and other image stacking technologies to produce better results at night. In fact, the company compared the new phone to the P20 Pro, as seen above.
