Xiaomi has launched its new flagship Mi MIX3 smartphone in the UAE.
The new device features ceramic back, 6.39" fullscreen display set on a magnetic slider.
The front sliding screen 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.
The patented slider uses neodymium magnets and a slider mechanism with a life expectancy of 300,000 cycles. 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.
The Mi MIX 3 features a 12MP + 12MP rear dual camera with steady handheld night photography mode, 4-axis OIS and 4K video recording and 960 fps slow-motion video capture.
The 24MP + 2MP front module sports a Sony IMX576 main sensor with 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.
The handset uses ceramic finishes, inspired by Chinese crafts.
The phone also includes a dedicated AI button to the left side of the phone so that users can wake Google Assistant by holding the AI button and customize one-click and double-click to perform different functions. Mi MIX 3 also supports Qi standard wireless charging and comes with a 10W wireless charger.
The Mi MIX 3 will be available through all Xiaomi channels in the UAE, including the Mi Stores in Burjuman, Deira City Centre, and Sharjah City Centre.
Mi MIX 3 will be available in Sapphire Blue, and Onyx Black in UAE, with 6GB + 128GB, for AED 2,199.
