Earlier today, we reported that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S took a huge price cut because of the imminent arrival of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3. A couple of days ago, Lin Bin, Xiaomi’s president gave a hint on the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and since then, there has been numerous leaks and speculations regarding this smartphone. Well, it didn’t take long, we now have a hands-on video for your viewing pleasure.
The video above is consistent with the images that were shared a few days ago by Xiaomi’s president. This smartphone comes with ultra-thin bezels on all four sides and it’s quite loveable that there is no notch on this one. However, for Xiaomi to ditch the notch, it had to adopt an idea which was introduced by OPPO FIND X a couple of months back. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 uses a periscope design – this means that it uses a slide out camera just like the Find X. This feature has met mixed reaction and some has questioned the durability of the periscope itself and the speed of sliding out. However, Xiaomi did something new by making the slide-out periscope manual so as to avoid software issues and dead motors issues with time. This is definitely a plus for Xiaomi.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 will not come with the luxurious curved AMOLED display like the Oppo Find X but it should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 coupled with at least 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. A decently large battery, say 4000 mAh will be nice and the camera department can be consistent with the Xiaomi Mi 8 which did not perform badly.
Nevertheless, if you have some reservations regarding the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and you HATE the notch idea, the only other Xiaomi flagship you can get is the Xiaomi MI MIX 2S and this is the best time to make a purchase because ther is currently a huge price cut. For Android users who detest the notch display design, you may want to consider the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S as it uses a tri-bezeless design.
