The family of borderless models continues to grow in Xiaomi . The manufacturer has finally presented its new Mi MIX 3 , a terminal that continues to drain inches of screen with a new system that invites to slide the screen to discover the front camera.
With this new design, the device manages to overcome 93% of the area occupied by the screen on the front, a figure that is possible thanks to the elimination of elements such as proximity sensors, light sensors and the front camera, a set that until now forced many manufacturers to depend on the well-known notch.
Some phones without frames on the screen
Obviously the Xiaomi MIX are characterized by taking full advantage of the dimensions of the screen by pressing the bevels to unsuspected limits. The first generation decided to place the front camera in the lower right corner of the front, a decision that became a hallmark in the range, but now with the Mi MIX 3 disappears to make way for the sliding screen.
With this design, the front camera returns to its traditional position , although it is completely hidden, having to slide down the screen to discover its position. Thanks to this system, the Mi MIX 3 achieves a cleaner appearance on the front, offering a completely uniform design as far as edges are concerned and allowing the user to obtain the desired “all-screen” appearance that manufacturers have been pursuing for so long. weather.

Having said that, it is clear that the work done in the Mi MIX 3 is superior to that of its predecessors, since we could be talking about the culmination of an idea that was born with the first Mi MIX .
Specifications without limitations
Another of the obvious advantages offered by the Mi MIX in front of its brothers is that the terminal arrives with a list of updated features per day. As a processor we will have a Snapdragon 845 , there will be versions of 6, 8 and 10 GB of RAM and with 128 and 256 GB of storage, and the 3,200 mAh battery can be recharged quickly and wirelessly with bases of up to 10W power.
In addition, an element as important as the screen has been upgraded to offer a 6.39-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels (403 ppi), thus moving from the original IPS panel of previous models to one with better contrast (60,000: 1) and coverage of 103.8% of the NTSC profile.
Another point to highlight is the incorporation of new cameras, both in the front and in the back. On the one hand, the main camera happens to be a Sony sensor of 12 megapixels with a pixel size of 1.4 microns, while the other sensor used to control the effects of blur is a Samsung of 12 megapixels. The main novelty is found in the front cameras, however, since in the Mi MIX 3 they become two, of 24 and 2 megapixels respectively, being able to offer effects of blurring, lighting, HDR, etc.
The new Mi MIX 3 can be purchased with a price that starts at 417 euros (direct conversion without taxes) for the 6 GB version and 128 GB of RAM, while the Mi MIX 2S can be found right now for about 370 euros . Taking into account the improvements introduced and the hardware level update, there is no doubt that the smart choice goes through the new model, since it is superior in all aspects and its price does not exceed too much.
