Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 Smartphone With 10GB RAM & Snapdragon 845 Launched Prices Specifications Features & More

Xiaomi says its solution uses a simple slider, similar to the one on older sliding phones like the SideKick.

Measuring at 157.9x74.7x8.5mm and weighing in at 218g, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 uses an aluminum frame, ceramic back, and an unspecified version of Gorilla Glass protecting the screen. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is a successor to both the Mi MIX 2 which arrived a year ago, and the Mi MIX 2S which was announced earlier this year. Xiaomi also found a place for the thin earpiece slit there and a notification light, though - something that can't be said for otherwise "landing strip" notch-y phones (cough, Pixel 3 XL, cough).

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 price starts at RMB 3,299 (~Rs 34,800) for the base 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The 8GB + 128 GB model is priced at 3,599 Yuan (approx Rs. 38,000, $518) while the 8GB + 256GB is available for 3,999 Yuan (approx Rs. 38,000, $518). If that's still not enough, the highest-end model, called the (deep breath) "Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Palace Museum Edition", has 256GB of storage and a whopping 10GB of RAM for RMB 4,999 (~$719). The phone will make its debut in global markets, starting with India, and we should know more on this front in the coming months.

The Mi Mix 3 has a few variants to choose from, with up to 10GB of RAM.

Xiaomi has made its bezel-less display work by placing the front camera at the bottom chin.

The slide-down action also toggles the camera app's selfie portrait mode, and similarly, closing the screen will exit the app; though you can also exit the app manually while leaving the screen down, should you wish to quickly check something elsewhere. There is also a 12MP secondary telephoto lens that offers 2x optical zoom. The company is claiming that this version is one of the first smartphones in the world to come with 10GB RAM.

The limited edition 10GB model will set customers back around £561 / $720 / AU$1,017 with 256GB of storage.

For photography, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 sports two 12-megapixel primary cameras at the rear.

The handset will be powered with a Snapdragon 845 SoC and will have up to 10GB of RAM and will also support 10-watt wireless charging with dual frequency Global Positioning System. On the front, a 24-megapixel Sony sensor is paired with a 2-megapixel camera that will provide bokeh effects to selfies.

Xiaomi has been sharing multiple teasers of its upcoming smartphone. The phone will go on sale in China starting on November 1, while Xiaomi did not share the Mi MIX 3's worldwide availability info just yet, but it will soon.
