Xiaomi kills the notch with its new bezel-free smartphone

The back of the phone slides up to reveal the 2 front cameras. The screen can only get so big before it encroaches on the space meant for the front-facing camera, and then what?

The setup comprises one Sony IMX363 wide-angle lens with f/1.8 aperture, 1.4um large pixels and Dual Pixel Autofocus, and one Samsung S5K3M3+ telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and 1.0um pixels. Called the Mi Mix 3, the device is the fourth handset in the Mi Mix series after Mi Mix, Mix Mix 2, Mi Mix 2S. Those that opt for this edition will also receive a 10W wireless Qi charger and a collectible statue in fancy packaging.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 will be available at a starting price of RMB 3,299 (approx Rs 34,800) for the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage, RMB 3,599 (approx Rs 38,000) for the 8GB/128GB configuration and RMB 3,999 (aapprox Rs 42,200) for the 256GB storage variant.

Xiaomi also added support for 960 fps slow motion video recording.

You'll need to pay 3,999 yuan ($575) if you'd prefer 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. A "Forbidden City Palace Museum" special edition with 10GB RAM/256GB ROM is priced at CNY4,999.

In addition, the Mi Mix 3 comes 5G ready, where it'll be compatible with European networks from the first quarter of 2019. The smartphone boasts a sliding-out camera system, which comes out above the bezel-less display.

Mi MIX 3 has the same bezel-less display as the previous Mi MIX smartphones. Underneath, it has the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, clubbed with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of onboard storage.

Earlier this week, Xiaomi announced the Black Shark Helo gaming phone and now its back with another flagship smartphone - Mi Mix 3 that was just launched in an event in Beijing. There are two cameras on the rear side- a 12MP primary shooter is paired with a 20MP secondary shooter.

Well, by employing the slider model that is becoming all the rage with Chinese manufacturers which were until recently being accused of blindly copying Apple's notch-y concept for an "all-screen" phone design, instead of coming up with something original.

The Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite launching in European markets will be available in two memory configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB internal memory, and 6GB RAM + 128GB internal memory.

The frontal camera has a 24-megapixel sensor, aided with a 2MP sensor for depth perception, which enables the phone to create dynamic depth of field effects even while filming video.

Xiaomi has been sharing multiple teasers of its upcoming smartphone.
