Xiaomi kills the notch with its new bezel-free smartphone

Xiaomi announced that it will meet its full-target for 100 million smartphones shipped already at the end of October. However, the top-of-the-line variant with 10GB of RAM and 256GB of inbuilt storage is priced at RMB 4999 (around Rs 52,800). This will come with 256 GB of storage and will cost roughly $720. This is not the first smartphone with 10 GB RAM. As reported already, the Xiaomi Mi 8 pro is an improved version of the Mi 8 launched a few months back. Xiaomi could price the phone at under Rs 40,000 for the base variant, initial reports suggest.

The 24-megapixel front camera uses pixel binning as well, and it's accompanied by an extra 2-megapixel camera for introducing background blur into your selfies. Sliding mechanisms have been used in phones before, but Xiaomi is replying it as a solution to a new problem.

We can find a 12MP main camera sensor on the rear with Sony IMX438 sensor and LED flash which will be accompanied with a 20MP secondary camera with Sony IMX376 sensor. According to reports, this frame rate os likely achieved with the use of frame interpolation from 240 fps to 960 fps as the Sony IMX363 sensor doesn't have a DRAM die to record true 960 fps videos.

Xiaomi says a neodymium magnet system powers the mechanism rather than a motor as it's the case with similar phones: "once the screen is pushed down, the magnetic mechanism immediately kicks in and finishes the opening in a snap with just the right amount of force". Two cameras on the back are 12-megapixel each - one wide angle and telephoto lens. During pixel binning, the resolution is reduced to 6 MP. The front has a 24MP camera along with a 2MP sensor. For the rear shooter, the specs are about the same as existing units from Xiaomi like the Mi Mix 2S and the Mi 8. It's a Qi-standard smartphone, so you can charge it with any wireless charger. However, the current variants don't support 5G.

The Mi Mix 3 has a USB Type - C port for charging and data transfer. In addition, Xiaomi does not provide a microSD card slot for expandable storage. Despite the fact that the smartphone features an AMOLED screen, it does not feature an in-screen fingerprint reader. You will get the Snapdragon 845, the world-first 10GB RAM with two storage options available: 128GB and 256GB. The primary variant will be price tagged at United States dollars 475 and the secondary edition of the same will be marketed at USD 575.
