Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Hands-on: Sliding in

The “all-screen” Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 was released three days ago and our friends over at Pocketnow are out with a detailed preview of the device already. Watch the video from their YouTube channel embedded below to learn more about this smartphone that refuses to let bezels encroach upon that sweet screen real estate.

This device brings back the experience of using the “slider” phones from back in the day. But the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 packs up to 10GB RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage, a beautiful OLED display with a 93.4% screen-to-body ratio, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip, wireless charging support (they even throw a wireless charger in the box!), and Android 9 Pie so you’re getting the best of the old and new worlds here.
