Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 packs up to 10GB of RAM and a stunning 93% screen-to-body ratio

Following a tease by the company's president back in August, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has now officially announced its next all-screen monster handset, the Mi Mix 3.

Boasting a FHD+ AMOLED display with a stunning 93% screen-to-body ratio, the Mi Mix 3 also packs a powerful 2.8GHz Snapdragon 845 processor into its unique frame, along with the option of 6GB, 8GB or a whopping 10GB of RAM.

Those after the 10GB model will have to track down the 'Forbidden City' limited edition, which sports traditional Chinese styling, a 10W wireless Qi charger and a collectible statue.

All of the Mi Mix 3 phones will be exclusive to the Chinese market for now. The 10 GB version is priced at RMB 4,999 ($720).

Xiaomi also announced a gaming phone with up to 10 GB of RAM, the Black Shark Helo.

    That's not a damn "phone", its a workstation that you have to throw away after a year.

    How about giving me something that just makes/receives calls and putting this fancy shit in a desktop or laptop where it belongs and can do more.

    So you need 10GB of ram to post drivel to Twatter now?

    Get a case, don't drop the thing too often, and I bet it could last 3-4 years.

    Aren't you being just a little too pessimistic?

    Ok, so it has a "non-removable" battery. So I'll revise that down to 2 years, unless you can find a way to tear it down and replace it. You would do surgery on a workstation if you could repair it, right?

      Why wouldn't I? No batteries, but if my power supply blows up, I can run down the street to Microcenter and pick up a new ATX power supply of any brand without sending the entire machine back to Frikking China. Same story for most other components assuming I didn't make some consumertardastic mistake purchasing/assembling the system in the first place. Sometimes I even still get to solder something (which reminds me, I am going to make a repair to one of my keyboards).

    The 10GB is for carrying your emergency supply of porn, moron.

    How about making something that runs for 2 weeks on a charge, like the feature phones of 2005 used to?

      Phones of 2005 did little more than phone calls and texts. If you want a phone that only does that, I'm pretty sure you can find one that will last 2 weeks.
