The Mi Mix 3 was one of the most interesting device launches this year, with its manual slider possibly ushering in a new trend. The Xiaomi flagship has remained in China for the past couple of weeks but, if word on the grapevine is anything to go by, it could be coming to Europe on December 1.

Xiaomi released the Mi Mix 3 towards the end of last month. The device, the newest iteration in Xiaomi’s lineup of phones with innovative designs, has been hailed for its take on the bezel-less display trend, as it features a manual slider that houses the regular hardware seen on the top of a phone’s display. The original launch event was in China, but it would seem that Xiaomi plans on bringing the device to Europe shortly. 

According to a discussion between a user and an Amazon.de customer representative, the flagship will be available on the retail outlet on December 1. It stands to reason that other European countries get it on the same day, as is usual. The device’s MSRP in Europe remains unknown but its base model sells for just under US$500 in China, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see it go for around US$600 in Europe, or the Euro equivalent anyway. The base OnePlus 6T sells for around EUR 549 on Amazon, and we believe Xiaomi will want to keep the Mix 3 competitive.

Meanwhile, a test has shown that the Mi Mix 3’s manual slider is good for up to 600,000 slides, twice the official figure given by Xiaomi. While the test was carried out by a machine and doesn’t exactly showcase real-world usage conditions, it’s at least a noteworthy indicator that, unless you go out of your way to break the Mix 3’s slider, it will almost definitely last you for the device’s lifetime.
