If you thought gone were the days of these greats...

Nokia 5300

Sony Ericsson Walkman W580i

...then you're wrong cause the ol' school mobile phone design is back, with a much slimmer and trendier look!

The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is the latest flagship device released by the Beijing-based electronics company, that shows off a 6.39-inch notch-free display screen and it can even SLIDE!

A WOW-factor about the Mi Mix 3 is that it is already running on the latest Android 9 OS -- even more advanced than the Samsung Note 9... but once you slide the display screen down, you'll have a 24-megapixel selfie camera + dual 12-megapixel cameras at the back.

Here are the Mi Mix 3 specs:

  • OS: Android 9.0 (Pie); MIUI 10
  • CPU: Octa-core (4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.7 GHz Kryo 385 Silver)
  • Chipset: Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 (10 nm)
  • GPU: Adreno 630
  • Internal: 6GB RAM + 128GB Memory / 8GB RAM + 256GB Memory
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery (uses Type-C)

Shot with the Mi Mix 3's 960 fps slow-mo video.

Unfortunately, unlike the Samsung Note 9, the Mi Mix 3 does not provide a slot for external memory -- so I would recommend the 256GB unit if you're an adventurer or vlogger.

Oh, another thing is that the Mi Mix 3 also doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack so you might wanna pick up a pair of wireless headphones when you're communiting on public transportations.

However... inside the box, you will get a charging pad -- so that's one thing less to go out and buy. 

 You would probably also be wondering how durable the sliding function is right -- as I'm sure most of your previous Nokia & Sony Ericsson phones probably snapped; well, it is ensured for 300,000 snap cycles!

So if you're gonna use the Mi Mix 3 for say...the next 3 years, then you'll have 274 cycles of fun a day!

Now for the price, which I'm assuming is the only thing you guys really wanna know...

These are the prices of the three colours:

  • Onyx Black:  RM2,199
  • Jade Green:  RM2,299
  • Sapphire Blue:  RM2,299
