Xiaomi unveils Mi MIX 3 in United Arab Emirates starting at AED 2,199
Xiaomi’s powerful new flagship sports a beautifully crafted ceramic body with a 6.39” full screen display made possible by an innovative magnetic slider design
Dubai, UAE, Feb 6th—Global technology leader Xiaomi unveiled its latest premium flagship Mi MIX 3 in UAE today, the newest device in the company’s award-winning Mi MIX series. Mi MIX 3 once again merges technology and art, sporting a beautiful ceramic back and an extreme 6.39” full screen display made possible by an innovative magnetic slider design.
Mi MIX 3 also comes with a camera setup that achieved a DxOMark photo score of 108, a new Sapphire Blue variant, and a 10W wireless charger shipped in-box. Mi MIX 3 will be available in Sapphire Blue, and Onyx Black in UAE, with 6GB + 128GB, for AED 2,199.
Patented magnetic slider and ultimate full screen display experience
Mi MIX 3’s patented slider incorporates neodymium magnets that have been carefully calibrated. 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. Xiaomi has dedicated substantial resources to the production process to ensure the slider has a life expectancy of 300,000 cycles in lab tests.
The slider design not only creates space for front cameras and antenna, but also allows for the maximum full-screen display. Mi MIX 3 employs a 6.39-inch, 2340 x 1080-pixel FHD+ Samsung AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Its bezels have been further reduced from its predecessor to achieve an extremely high screen-to-body ratio.
The full-screen slider is fully customizable. Users can slide open the phone to answer calls or customize it to launch different functions. Additionally, there is a special in-game function for the slider, allowing users to access screen capture, screen recorder, or hide notifications during gaming sessions.
World-class photography rated 108 by DxOMark
Mi MIX 3 features a 12MP + 12MP rear dual camera that uses the same sensors as Mi 8. To further improve low-light performance, Xiaomi introduced a steady handheld night photography mode in Mi MIX 3, bundling various useful software features. Coupled with the rear camera’s 4-axis OIS, Mi MIX 3 is Xiaomi’s best smartphone for low-light photos to date. The rear dual camera also features 4K video recording and 960 fps slow-motion video capture.
The 24MP + 2MP front module sports a Sony IMX576 main sensor that can capture more details than ever before. In low-light conditions, the sensor uses Super Pixel technology to combine the information of four pixels into one 1.8µm large pixel, greatly improving clarity. The secondary 2M sensor captures depth information to facilitate an AI bokeh effect.
With these enhancements, Mi MIX 3 achieved a DxOMark photo score of 108, ranking among the world’s best smartphones for photography.
Beautiful ceramic back, dedicated AI button, and wireless charging
Mi MIX 3 continues the series’ tradition of using unique materials with artistic design, adding a new Sapphire Blue version inspired by Chinese ceramic crafts. These ceramic pieces are renowned for their beauty and were meticulously made using a complex production process with very precise temperature control.
For the first time, Xiaomi added a dedicated AI button to the left side of the phone. Users can wake Google Assistant by holding the AI button and customize one-click and double-click to perform different functions. Mi MIX 3 also supports Qi standard wireless charging and comes with a 10W wireless charger.
The Mi MIX 3 will be available through all Xiaomi channels in the UAE, including the Mi Stores in Burjuman, Deira City Centre, and Sharjah City Centre.
