What started as an adventure started by Xiaomi in 2014 , is now a trend. Few know that Xiaomi needed enough time to convince Google that it was necessary to change the traditional format, receiving a negative in the first place, and seeing them give in later. After the arduous task of convincing the people in charge of Android, the Chinese firm brought the Mi Mix concept four years ago , the first terminal that left the classic 16: 9 format, to begin to show that the most panoramic screens would be the future of telephony
Today was the day chosen by the firm in full growth to present its third generation Mix. So, talk about the price, features and specifications of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 , the latest range top that says goodbye to the notch, bringing the first sliding mechanism ever seen in a Xiaomi, and trying to conquer the high range at a lower price than the rest of his direct rivals.
All the details of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
Design and screen: do not touch what works
Xiaomi boasts of having achieved 93.4% of frontal use. This has been achieved by reducing the bevels even more compared to the previous generation, and succeeding in hiding the cameras in a sliding rear part. The mechanism reminds us of what we saw on phones 10 years ago , in which we needed to manually slide the keyboards or the cameras themselves to use them. As in the Oppo Find X, we can change the sound of the mechanism by software .
Improving what already worked, Xiaomi down 4.46mm the bottom edge
How could it be otherwise, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is built in glass and aluminum, and is that the Mix do not give up the premium finish. Something logical, considering that they are the most expensive range of Xiaomi . Compared with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S the terminal looks much better, and is that the reduction of bevels compared to the previous generation is considerable.
The reduction of the lower chin , which is still higher than the upper chin , but much more achieved, is striking. The panel included between these bevels is an AMOLED of 6.39 inches , an important jump compared to the IPS technology used in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.
Technical specifications: pure power, without detours
At the technical level, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has what is expected of a top of the range. Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor , configurations of up to 10 GB of RAM memory -passing 6 and 8 GB-, 4000mAh of battery with fast charge, 128 and 256 GB of internal storage, double camera … The Mix range has always been characterized by to be the one that bet more for the brute power, and this third generation is not far behind.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the first Android smartphone with 10 GB of RAM.
Its 4000mAh battery can be charged wirelessly with a power of up to 10W, the same as we offer chargers like the Google Pixel Stand. Great news to have this amperage , since the last generation Mi Mix 2S left us a bittersweet taste in this aspect. A terminal that practically does not lack anything , and that comes to compete directly with this year’s range bumps like the iPhone XS Max or the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Software: MIUI as the main protagonist
The bet of Xiaomi by MIUI in its top of range is clear. In this case we have the eighth version of Android, running under MIUI 10. An operating system that promises to be fluid , in addition to offering a series of additions that we do not have in the purest versions of Android. No exclusive news for the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, the terminal will offer the ROM that we expected, no more, no less .
Xiaomi is used to launching its terminals without updating and launching the newest version some time later, so we can be almost certain that this Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will die with Android 10. The logic of a flagship forced that in its launch it had already Android 9 Pie , but it could not be this time. Be that as it may, Xiaomi provides layer updates for several years , so we will not have too many problems.
Photographic section: double camera by flag
In the photographic section, we have in this case a double camera of 12 + 12 megapixels. It is a Sony IMX363 sensor with aperture f / 1.8 accompanied by a second Samsung S5K3M3 sensor with aperture f / 2.4. The camera will help artificial intelligence to recognize scenes , and has been punctuated with a global 103 in DxOMark, surpassing terminals like the Huawei P20 or the Samsung Galaxy S9 +. The front camera will also be double, with 24 and 2 megapixels. With this second camera we will obtain information about the depth of field , to make selfies in portrait mode.
In the presentation itself, Xiaomi has boasted a better control of the highlights than the Huawei P20 Pro . Apple and Google have shown that the best pictures are achieved by making the HDR achieve a correct final exposure, and it seems that the Xiaomi guys have taken note. As far as video is concerned, highlights the video recording to 960FPS.
In addition to this, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be able to record video in portrait mode , something we saw a few weeks ago in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and that seems to start becoming popular.
