Global technology leader Xiaomi announced the release of its latest premium flagship Mi MIX 3 in Malaysia, the newest device in the company’s award-winning Mi MIX series. Mi MIX 3 once again merges technology and art, sporting a beautiful ceramic back and an extreme 6.39” full screen display made possible by an innovative magnetic slider design.
Steven Shi, Head of Xiaomi South Pacific Region, said: “Our MIX series line of smartphones is synonymous with ground-breaking innovations and eye-catching aesthetics, pushing the envelope of what the modern smartphone can become. The Mi MIX 3 continues that tradition. It is a testament to our commitment to innovate and to create a device that will appeal to users who appreciate technology as well as art.”
Patented magnetic slider and ultimate full screen display experience Mi MIX 3’s patented slider incorporates neodymium magnets that have been carefully calibrated. Once the screen is pushed down, the magnetic mechanism immediately kicks in and finishes the opening in a snap with just the right amount of force. Xiaomi has dedicated substantial resources to the production process to ensure the slider has a life expectancy of 300,000 cycles in lab tests.
The slider design not only creates space for front cameras and antenna, but also allows for the maximum full-screen display. Mi MIX 3 employs a 6.39-inch, 2340 x 1080-pixel FHD+ Samsung AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Its bezels have been further reduced from its predecessor to achieve an extremely high screen-to-body ratio.
The full-screen slider is fully customizable. Users can slide open the phone to answer calls or customize it to launch different functions. Additionally, there is a special in-game function for the slider, allowing users to access screen capture, screen recorder, or hide notifications during gaming sessions.
World-class photography rated 108 by DxOMark
Mi MIX 3 features a 12MP + 12MP rear dual camera that uses the same sensors as Mi 8. To further improve low-light performance, Xiaomi introduced a steady handheld night photography mode in Mi MIX 3, bundling various useful software features. Coupled with the rear camera’s 4-axis OIS, Mi MIX 3 is Xiaomi’s best smartphone for low-light photos to date. The rear dual camera also features 4K video recording and 960 fps slow-motion video capture.
The 24MP + 2MP front module sports a Sony IMX576 main sensor that can capture more details than ever before. In low-light conditions, the sensor uses Super Pixel technology to combine the information of four pixels into one 1.8μm large pixel, greatly improving clarity. The secondary 2M sensor captures depth information to facilitate an AI bokeh effect.
With these enhancements, Mi MIX 3 achieved a DxOMark photo score of 108, ranking among the world’s best smartphones for photography.
