The highly awaited flagship killer from Xiaomi, Mi Mix 3 has been announced eventually. The company just unveiled its newest successor to last year’s Mi Mix 2, in China. Since it’s a flagship handset itself, then surely it’s got something to make many eyeballs turn excitedly. The phone possesses an all-screen design-yes, you heard that right. The screen-to-body ratio is about 93.4%, being claimed by Xiaomi.
Apart from having an all-screen front face, the Mi Mix 3 has got a slider for using front cameras. It sounds like the Oppo Find X and Vivo Nex, but the company says it’s a bit different from them.
Quickly coming onto the configurations, then the phone is powered by the latest chipset, which is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845. But the thing which takes it all to a whole new level is the RAM capacity of Mi Mix 3. Yes, Xiaomi’s newly announced phone has also joined the elite club of 10GB RAM phones this year! The highest variant of the phone called the ‘Palace Museum Edition’ will be having it. While the other three options available will be of 6GB/128GB, 8GB/128GB, and 8GB/256GB storage.
The phone comes with a 6.39inch AMOLED Full HD+ display (having a resolution of 2340x1080p), with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The device also supports wireless charging and Xiaomi, in fact, will also bundle one, in the box; which is really really great. The wireless charger is around 10W.
The phone’s European version will also be based on a 5G network.
Talking of the optics, then the Mi Mix 3 comes with four cameras! There is a rear-dual camera setup comprising of 12MP+12MP lenses (wide-angle and telephoto), while on the front, there are 24MP+2MP lenses. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back.
Since the phone is just released in China, so the company has set the pricing as per the Chinese market only. Mi Mix 3 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will be available for CNY 3,299 ($475), translating to about Rs.34,784. The 8GB/128GB variant will be priced at CNY 3,599 ($517.92), translating to about Rs.37,928. The 8GB/256GB model will be priced for CNY 3,999 ($575.49), translating to about Rs.42,158. And lastly, the 10GB/256GB variant will be priced for CNY 4,999 ($720), translating to around Rs.52,744.
Looking at this pricing strategy then it still feels like a lot and lot cheaper, considering the fact that it’s a premium looking, powerful device. And this aggressive pricing is the only thing which makes Xiaomi stand out from its rivals. If Mi Mix 3 arrives in India, it will obviously give a tough competition to OnePlus-and even the big branded flagships too.
