Xiaomi today launched the third-generation of its Mi Mix line. The company’s Mi Mix 3 is its most beautiful phone to date, featuring an edge-to-edge display and no notch.

Unlike almost all the devices coming out this year, Xiaomi has done something a little different with the design of the Mi Mix 3. Instead of putting the front-facing cameras and sensors on a notch, the company has instead made it into a slider that pops up when you need it. This means whenever you are taking a selfie, the slider can be opened to access the front camera. Xiamoi has also made it so you can use the slider as a shortcut — you can, for example, use it to accept calls, or launch a certain task.

The updated design of the 6.4-inch device means you are now getting a 93.4% screen-to-body ratio, and that’s pretty incredible. The company says the slider of the device has a life expectancy of 300,00 cycles.

As for the cameras, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 features a 12MP dual-camera setup on the back, with a 24-megapixel camera on the front. The device is powered by the Snapdragon 845 and comes with 10GB of RAM — yes, ten. It’s going to launch in China this November starting at 3,299 yuan — and that’s about $475. If you want the 10GB RAM model, you will have to spend around 4,999 yuan, or roughly $720.
