The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has started the year with a very strong footing. He closed the previous year as the fourth manufacturer of mobile phones that more units sold worldwide and is willing to enter the podium at the expense of one of the three heavyweights that currently occupy: Apple, Samsung and Huawei.
In recent weeks we have seen how the first two saw sales significantly reduced especially high-end terminals [we tell you why in the next article] and we will have to be very attentive to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, which is held end of February, to see the new releases of many companies, but Xiaomi has been ahead of all starring in the first big launch of 2019 this week.
“The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a high-end terminal at a lower price than the first swords of other manufacturers.”
They have not waited almost for the Wise Men to pass and from China, not from the East, arrived on Wednesday the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. It is a high-end phone at a price considerably lower than that of other phones considered ” first swords “, since it has a value of 499 euros. It is sold both on the official website of Xiaomi and in any of the physical stores that the company has distributed throughout the country as in AliExpress.
It is not the highest level terminal that Xiaomi has – the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro would still be above in terms of performance – but it is a very suitable device for those who want to have the latest mobile technology in the palm of their hand and that do not want to make a disbursement as high as it is to acquire an iPhone XS or a Samsung Galaxy S9.
What has the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 special? In the first place, what is especially striking is its large screen. It is 6.39 inches and has virtually no frames or notch, which makes it occupy the entire front of the device. It is an AMOLED screen and with FHD + resolution.
It is a device that works with the latest version of the Android 9 Pie operating system, and also incorporates a very powerful processor, a Snapdragon 845, which is the same as the main high-end phones.
In addition, it also stands out for the power of its camera system. The front has two lenses, one of 24 megapixels, the most powerful in the market, and another auxiliary that serves to give depth of field. On the other hand, in the back part there are two 12 megapixel lenses, with special effect for low lighting conditions.
