Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 Launches with Tele-Camera and Night Mode

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi today announced its new flagship smartphone, the Mi MIX 3. The new device features a 6.4” AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and only minimal bezels. Unlike most current high-end phones, the Xiaomi doesn’t come with a display notch. Instead the rear of the phone slides upwards, revealing a front dual-cam setup with 24MP main module and a 2MP depth-sensing camera.

Rear camera hardware specs have not changed compared to the Mi 8 and Mi Mix 2S which were both released earlier this year. The rear dual-camera comes with a 12MP wide-angle primary camera that uses a 1/2.55 Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4µm pixel size, F1.8 aperture and OIS.

The secondary 2x tele-camera comes with smaller 1.0µm pixels and an F/2.4 aperture lens. Software-wise the Mi MIX 3 offers a new Night Mode for hand-held long-exposure shots and AI-powered scene recognition.

Other specs are in line with the current crop of top-end Android phones. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset and 6, 8 or 10GB of RAM. You can choose between 128GB or 256GB of internal storage but there are no expansion slot headphone jack.

Pricing starts at $475 (CNY3,299) for the 6/128GB version and goes up to $720 (CNY4,999) for the 10/256GB model. Preorder is starting today and the device will actually be available November 1.
