and here we have a 10 watt wireless charger, never seen that included in the box before, under here we have a little package, there’s a sim tool and USBC dongle, says there’s no headphone jack on this phone .
already there’s a USBC cable here and finally an 18 watt quick charger, so now that we have the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 in our hands so let’s go over what makes it special .
the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a flagship through and through, it has a top-of-the-line snapdragon 845 chipset with plenty of RAM, it supports both quick charging and wireless charging .
and it runs the latest MIUI 10 and Android 9.0 (Pie), but probably the most unique aspect is this physical sliding mechanism, which hides the selfie camera inside of the body behind the screen .
sliding it open is simple and it automatically launches the selfie cam, you can also program it to open a customizable menu, this motion can also answer a phone call just like an old-school sliding phone .
but you can still answer and talk with the slider close too, you were excited to slide this open for face unlock, but it appears that the rear mounted fingerprint reader is your only unlock option . Read More : Sony Xperia XZ3 Long Term Review
regardless, Xiaomi says that the slider is tested to over 300,000 uses, so you can fidget with it all you want, however we do wonder how it affects the overall structure of the phone and if the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will be able to handle being dropped, it definitely isn’t waterproof at the very least .
that said the phone does have a strong frame made out of 7000 series aluminium, the back is made not of glass but a shiny mirror like ceramic, the ceramic is quite slippery so it might be better to use the included case to add some grip .
thanks to the hidden selfie cam, the front of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a totally bezels and natural is 6.4 inch AMOLED display, at 1080p content should look decent and we look forward to testing it out .
the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has a dual camera setup on both the back and the front, starting with the rear ones both 12 megapixels there’s a main cam with dual pixel autofocus in OIS and a telephoto used for zoom and portrait mode .
we did get a chance to try out the camera for a while in Beijing, when we got our first look at the phone, here are a few shots we took while over there, we’ll have a detailed analysis of the camera quality in our full review .
the selfie setup has a 24 megapixel main cam and a 2 megapixel one for depth sensing in portrait mode, we snapped a few selfies and we weren’t disappointed . Read More : Honor View 20 Key Features And Unboxing
