Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Prototypes Leak Well Ahead of Time

by Jed John 4

Xiaomi could be said to be a pioneer of the full-screen revolution that is currently sweeping the smartphone industry. The company first released the Mi Mix concept smartphone with a full-view design last year and that was followed by the Mi Mix 2 launched a couple of months back.Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

Naturally, the next model we’ll expect from Xiaomi should be the Mi Mix 3 and quite early, a set of photos said to be the prototypes of the Mi Mix 3 has appeared on Weibo. We’d have thought Xiaomi would take things a bit further with more reduced bezels on all sides but the prototype takes a different dimension altogether.

The prototypes come in three different designs all with varying sensor layouts and design styles at the rear. The prototypes also suggest the existence of a secondary design at the rear. The anterior design keeps up with the full-screen design language the Mix-series are known for and it is taken a step further with a higher screen-to-body ratio. The bezels are not visible as if they are non-existent. We’ll have to wait till next year to find out if Xiaomi has made the breakthrough in the realization of a truly bezel-less smartphone. For now, we’ll take this with a pinch of salt.

    For me it it should be simple, get rid of the front facing camera, throw a small screen on the back like Meizu and allow the rear camera to function as both selfie and normal camera. By the time the Mi Mix 3 comes out, we should have under glass finger print scanners so we won’t have to worry about that. Having only one camera should allow them to put a beast of a camera setup in there along with EIS/OIS something that can compete with the big boys. Something needs to be done with the bottom mounted camera.

      Not that simple, try to use WhatsApp or Skype with Pro 7 back screen:)

        its surely not that simple because the Pro 7’s back screen is read as a back camera…which WhatsApp and Skype don’t support. But if the phone only had ONE camera it would be read as both the front and back camera so it wouldn’t matter what app is running, it would read that camera. Not to say its the most intuitive nor functional idea, I’m simply trying to kill 2 birds with one stone. First being the obvious chin issue and camera placement that Xiaomi is currently using (which is fine unless you want to use those SAME apps you mentioned) and the other being the quality of the camera itself.

        Its probably not possible for Xiaomi to do this with the ceramic that they use anyway, so its definitely low on the scale of feasibility. I think that more than likely we will see a camera embedded below the glass the same as the fingerprint technology.

    I own the mi mix 2, perfect device tho would’ve liked a better camera, especially the front facing one.
