Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 - Forbidden City Edition
Cutting-edge performance and a design that will thrill lovers of modern technology... Xiaomi's Mi Mix product line is aimed at demanding smartphone users who attach great importance to appearance. The limited version "Forbidden City" sets itself apart from the competition in terms of appearance and conveys a legendary elegant impression. The Mi Mix 3 captivates with its elegant and at the same time futuristic design, a slider camera like the Oppo Find X and a strong interior consisting of a Snapdragon 845 and 10 GB RAM. In addition, the internal memory is generously dimensioned. A total of 256 GB of memory is provided.
The Smartphone for design lovers
All smartphone users who value extravagant design have known about the Xiaomi's Mi Mix series for years. With the latest model, however, the Chinese manufacturer is taking it to the top in terms of design technology. The Mi Mix 3 presents itself as a true eye-opener of the luxurious type. The flawlessly crafted ceramic case is decorated by an elegant lettering on the back. A dragon depicted in golden outlines also adorns the back of the design wonder. Equally impressive is the front: more than 90% of the front is dominated by the 6.39 inch display. The already narrow edges of the predecessors have been reduced again. Xiaomi doesn't care about the notch of current top models from other manufacturers, because the front camera is a real innovation and doesn't take up any space on the front!
This is magic!
The Oppo Find X has already set an example, while the Mi Mix 3 perfected it... The slider camera is not extended by a fragile and space-consuming internal motor, but by means of a magnetic rail. Within fractions of a second the camera can be extended and immediately become ready for use. The interior is also impressive. A 24 megapixel Sony IMX 576 sensor is supported by a 2 megapixel second camera, which provides appealing Selfies with Bokeh effect. The effects of the intelligent software are also breathtaking. Studio AI light and AI makeup provide even better results. The AI is also supported by the main camera, too. In particular, the dual camera on the back allows hobby photographers with a SLR camera to consider whether they need to take it with them for outstanding snapshots. The two Sony IMX 363 sensors offer a resolution of 12 megapixels. Unsteady hands are compensated by the 4 axis OIS. With the double optical zoom, distant objects are brought closer to the portrait without loss of detail. A real special feature is the Super Slow Motion mode. Up to 960 fps can be recorded by the powerful camera combination.
Top performance at a reduced price
Cost-effective, but by no means cheap. The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has been following this credo since its foundation over eight years ago. The Mi Mix 3 is no exception, despite the reasonable price, a top CPU model lies in its elegant case. The new Snapdragon 845 is currently the fastest processor on the market and offers 8 cores clocked at up to 2.8 GHz. In combination with the 10 GB RAM, multitasking and compute-intensive applications are no problem at all. Gamers will appreciate the Adreno 630 GPU very much. The hardware requirements of modern 3D games are no problem for the Mi Mix 3.
Full HD is old school!
In accordance with this motto, Xiaomi's current Phablet flagship features a correspondingly high-resolution display. The manufacturer relies on OLED technology, which is known for particularly high-contrast colors and high brightness. In total, 103.8% of the NTSC color space is covered. Direct sunlight is no problem for the screen due to a maximum light output of 600 nit. The 6.39-inch display uses a staggering 93.4% of the front and impresses with particularly narrow edges. With a resolution of up to 2340 x 1080 pixels, a very good pixel density is achieved despite the screen size.
Modern standards are guaranteed
As befits a flagship, the Mi Mix 3 offers all the relevant current standards. Smart everyday companions such as fitness trackers or wireless headphones can be connected via Bluetooth 5.0. NFC modules are also available, of course. With the Global Version with FDD LTE Support and Band 20, data connections are established in the mobile network at high speed. Within known networks, extremely high bandwidths are also achieved due to 802.11 a, b, g, n and ac standards and 4x4 MIMO. Site services can be used without restrictions. The Mi Mix 3 supports the established standards GPS, Galileo, QZSS, GLONASS and Beidou. Friends of wireless charging will also be delighted. Wireless charging with up to 10 W is guaranteed. The integrated 3200 mAh battery can be charged in record time with a cable via Quickcharge 4. In terms of security standards, Xiaomi is also absolutely up to date with the flagship. Fingerprint sensor on the back as well as Face Unlock are integrated in the Mi Mix 3. Miui 9 based on Android 8.0 is used as the operating system. With Dual Sim two SIM cards can be managed at the same time on the mobile phone.
