Thanks to its 600-nit brightness and 103.8-percent NTSC gamut, the screen looked stunning even outdoors, though it would have been even nicer if it came with a higher resolution.

The full front and back section of the phone moves - not just a small top component. Sliding down the screen in this way allows you to answer a call, access the 24Mp + 2Mp selfie cameras, and access shortcuts to any app via the new shortcuts drawer.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 is the successor of the Xiaomi Mi A1, Xiaomi's first Android One phone. Instead of going with a motorized pop-up camera or a motorized front bezel, the Mi MIX 3 has a magnetic manual slider.

As far as the prices are concerned, the base variant of the new Mi MIX 3 flagship smartphone is priced from Rs 3299, which is around Rs 34,800 (6GB RAM and 64GB ROM).

While Oppo recently updated its Find X range to include a 10GB variant, the Mi Mix 3 will offer the option at launch alongside its 6GB and 8GB memory options. On another hand, the 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB models will go for CNY 3599 (~RM 2161) and CNY 3999 (~RM 2402) respectively.

There is also a Palace Museum edition, which comes with 10GB RAM and 256GB storage.

The camera is also a highlight of the phone, with Xiaomi touting a 108 DxOMark score for the primary shooter. Those that opt for this edition will also receive a 10W wireless Qi charger and a collectible statue in fancy packaging.

For videos, they found the MIX 3 to have a similar experience to the Mi 8 where it offers accurate autofocus and good tracking. There was a single 12MP rear-facing camera with Dual LED dual-tone flash and was accompanied by a 5MP front facing camera.

The device joins the LG G7 ThinQ, OnePlus 6, and Samsung Galaxy 9 lineup in being powered by Qualcomm's premium Snapdragon 845 mobile platform, a chip created to be ultra fast with top-of-the-line performance. There's a dual-camera setup at the rear too which is a combination of 12MP cameras. Two cameras on the back are 12-megapixel each - one wide angle and telephoto lens. It drives a new way of interacting with Mi Mix 3: you just slide to start. On the front, the Mi Mix 3 has a 24-megapixel main sensor coupled with a 2-megapixel depth sensor for bokeh shots. Video-wise, the phone can also shoot 960 fps slow-mo and 4K at 60 fps.

Hey competition. Why don't you 'slide' over? You won't be able to take advantage of 5G until H2 next year anyway (at the earliest), and Xiaomi did say that it will launch a 5G Mi MIX 3 model in Q1 next year, though, so... those of you who would like to be 5G ready will have to wait a bit longer.
