After the long wait, the latest iteration of Xiaomi’s near bezel-less smartphone, the Mi Mix 3 is set to be available in authorized Mi Stores in the Philippines starting December 19. On the same day, pre-orders will also be accepted via Lazada, in preparation for its December 21 sale.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the culmination of the company’s continuous push for innovative features combined with flagship level specifications. It boasts a 6.39-inch Samsung AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, and runs on no less than the Snapdragon 845 processor, along with up to 10GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of this phone, is its front camera, which utilizes a magnetic sliding mechanism. There are no motors here, so you’ll have to manually slide it up and down to show and hide the optics.
Additionally, the slider can also be used for answering calls, capturing screenshots, screen recording, and also to prevent those notifications from bothering you while playing a game. It’s tested to last for around 300,000 cycles.
The Mi Mix 3 is equipped with AI-assisted dual rear cameras, capable of Scene Detection, 2x optical zoom, 4-axis OIS, and even 960fps slow motion video recording. It runs on MIUI 10 on top of Android 9 Pie, and packs a 3,200mAh battery. It’s compatible with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4.0+ technology, and 10W Qi Wireless Fast-Charging.
The device comes in three colors – Sapphire Blue, Emerald Green, and Onyx Black. The variant that will be sold here will have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 (6GB + 128GB) will retail for PhP29,990. Those who’ll purchase a unit from Authorized Mi Stores will get cool eco-products and t-shirts. Be one of the first 20 to purchase and you’ll also get earphones; powerbanks for the rest. Those who will pre-order at Mi Authorized Stores will also get Mi Casual Daypacks. They haven’t confirmed what those who will pre-order from Lazada will get, but we’re pretty sure it’s something awesome.
