❤ Xiaomi Mi Mix 3


Xiaomi has a brand new flagship smartphone heading to market with today’s unveiling of the Mi Mix 3.

The handset is another powerful addition in the Android roster. This is another slider device, too, which means there isn’t a notch. But unlike other devices with this design, the Mi Mix 3 doesn’t use a motor. Instead, you’ll just slide the cameras up and down, facilitated by the magnetic slider. It harkens back to the days of old slider phones.

As far as specs go, the Mi Mix 3 boasts a 6.4-inch 1080p OLED display which Xiaomi says features a 93.4 percent screen-to-body ratio. There are four cameras in total: a pair of 12MP cameras on the back (one wide-angle and the other a telephoto shooter), and 24MP and a 2MP front-facing cameras.


The Mi Mix 3 has a few variants to choose from, with up to 10GB of RAM. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood, and the Mi Mix 3 supports fast wireless charging. What’s more, Xiaomi is even including a wireless charger in the box with the phone.

Xiaomi is also planning to launch a 5G version of the Mi Mix 3 in the early stages of 2019.

The Mi Mix 3 launches in China on November 1. Price starts at 3,299 yuan (about $475), which gets you 6GB of RAM and 128GB of built-in storage. If you want that model with 10GB of RAM, that comes in the “Forbidden City Palace Museum” edition, which retails for 4,999 yuan (about $720) and features 256GB of built-in storage.
