Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 kernel source code is now available
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is one of the most interesting smartphones released this year because of its nearly bezel-less design, thanks to its magnetic slider. The phone launched in China late last month but has yet to launch internationally. The stylish device has a premium ceramic body with colors like Jade Green, and there’s even a model with up to 10GB RAM. Like other Xiaomi flagship devices, the Mi Mix 3 runs MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. For those of you looking for an AOSP-based custom ROM, we have some good news for you: the kernel source code for the device has been released.
You can download the kernel sources for the Mi Mix 3, code-named “perseus,” at the link below. Developers who are interested in the device can now take a stab at building a custom ROM for the phone.
Be sure to visit the XDA forums for the device if you’re interested in custom development, or if you just want to chat with fellow owners of the device.
This is Xiaomi’s sixth device on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 platform after the launch of the Mi Mix 2S, Mi 8, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, POCO F1, and Mi 8 Pro. We’re nearing the end of 2018, but Xiaomi may have another surprise up their sleeves. We’ll let you know about any upcoming Xiaomi devices as we learn about them, so stay tuned!
