Starting today, December 19, 2018, Mi Authorized Stores will start selling the Mi MIX 3, while Lazada will start accepting pre-orders for its December 21, 2018 sale.

Meanwhile, those who will pre-order on Lazada should stay tuned for special surprises.
John Chen, Regional Director for Southeast Asia, said: “Xiaomi has constantly pushed boundaries in technology and art. As we launch the Mi MIX 3 in the Philippines, we are continuing the tradition of building innovative devices that exceed people’s expectations of what a smartphone should be.”
Mi MIX 3 Patented magnetic slider
Mi MIX 3 is the newest device in the company’s award-winning Mi MIX series. It merges technology and art, sports a beautiful ceramic back, and has an extreme 6.39” full-screen display made possible by an innovative magnetic slider design.
The slider incorporates neodymium magnets that have been carefully calibrated. Once the screen is pushed down, the magnetic mechanism immediately kicks in and finishes the opening in a snap with just the right amount of force.
Xiaomi told us that this slider has a life expectancy of 300,000 cycles.
The slider design not only creates space for front cameras and antenna but also allows for the maximum full-screen display. Mi MIX 3 employs a 6.39-inch, 2340 x 1080-pixel FHD+ Samsung AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Its bezels have been further reduced from its predecessor to achieve an extremely high screen-to-body ratio.
Mi MIX 3 World-class photography rated 108 by DxOMark
Mi MIX 3 features a 12MP + 12MP rear dual camera that uses the same sensors as Mi 8. To further improve low-light performance, Xiaomi introduced a steady handheld night photography mode in Mi MIX 3, bundling various useful software features. Coupled with the rear camera’s 4-axis OIS, Mi MIX 3 is Xiaomi’s best smartphone for low-light photos to date. The rear dual camera also features 4K video recording and 960 fps slow-motion video capture.
The 24MP + 2MP front module sports a Sony IMX576 main sensor that can capture more details than ever before. In low-light conditions, the sensor uses Super Pixel technology to combine the information of four pixels into one 1.8µm large pixel, greatly improving clarity. The secondary 2M sensor captures depth information to facilitate an AI bokeh effect.
With these enhancements, Mi MIX 3 achieved a DxOMark photo score of 108, ranking among the world’s best smartphones for photography.
