Hands-on with the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 slider phone at Xiaomi’s New York event
Last week, Xiaomi had a gathering in New York City to show off some of their new products coming to the United States (more information can be found below). At the event, they also had the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, POCOPHONE F1, Mi 8, Mi 8 Pro, and Mi 8 Lite. We were able to spend some time with the Mi Mix 3 mechanically retractable slider phone, one of the most interesting devices currently on the market. The device is only available in mainland China and Taiwan, but the device is launching in the United Kingdom and other international markets during Q1 of 2019.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has the latest specifications that you would expect in a 2018 flagship Android device, but what makes it really stand out is its nearly bezel-less display thanks to its slider mechanism. When you want to use the front-facing camera, you slide the display down to reveal the module. It’s a brilliant way to give us more screen real estate without introducing something like a display notch or display hole.
Check out our brief hands-on video of the Mi Mix 3 from the Xiaomi pop-up event held in New York City. The Mi Mix 3 is a really cool device and I can’t wait to get my hands on a device for a full review, which will be happening soon. Let us know what you think of the Mi Mix 3 in the comments below!
