Well, wondering about the latest phones of 2018 does bring the display straight into the limelight.

Yes, the xiaomi mi mix 3 comes with a massive 6.39 inch Full HD+ AMOLED panel. And it is the same as you will see on Samsung phones boasting vibrant colours and crystal clear quality.

Further, the phone comes with a 19:5:9 aspect ratio having a 600-nit brightness making display much vibrant.

In addition, the screen to body ratio is 93.4 percent which makes it the first ever phone to have such amazing full-view display.

Yes, there is no notch and don’t worry about the camera and sensors, they have found their special place.

Wondering about the screen protection, Gorilla Glass 5 is present which can protect the screen from deep scratches.

Grab the mi mix 3 and you will feel its heavyweight nature at a glance. Yes, it is among the most heaviest phones I have ever used and weights 218 grams.

When we compare it with the Samsung galaxy note 9 (201 grams), it is slightly heavier too.

Still, the mi mix 3 is a bit slimmer and comes with aggressive curves making it less edgy from every corner.

Take a look at the Magnetic Sliding Mechanism of Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

Wondering about that one standout feature which separates the mi mix 3 from the rest, it is the great manual sliding mechanism.

Here, with the help of neodymium magnets, the slider is locked and you can easily slide it as and when required.

As and when you begin to push the display, the magnets interact and a nostalgic click sound comes.

Now, the manual magnetic slider can withstand a whopping 300,000 cycles which is amazing and will run for years.

Hence, here is the catch as you will get the cameras and necessary sensors on that slider itself.

Front Facing Camera Magic

Moving ahead, the secondary camera is of 2MP which can assist in taking portrait shots and bokeh effects.

The main sensor makes use of pixel binning technology in low-light conditions. With which, it can combine light data into four adjacent pixels and upscaling the image back to 24MP.

In addition, you get full AI Support in portrait mode whereas studio light effects form the sole basis.
