Xiaomi’s Mi MIX can be said to be the phone that started the bezel-less rave. A few months after its release, a number of manufacturers decided to churn out their own versions. One of them is Chinese manufacturer Doogee. Doogee doesn’t even hide the fact that its own versions are inspired by the Xiaomi Mi MIX as they are called the Doogee Mix and Doogee Mix 2.
For its third generation model, the Doogee MIX 3, the company is going for a new but familiar design for the camera. Unlike the Mix and Mix 2 which have their front cameras on the lower and top bezel respectively, the Doogee Mix 3 ditches both options.
Thanks to photos posted by Evan Blass, Doogee has instead settled for a single rear camera that can be lifted up to double as the selfie camera. This design was first seen in the Honor 7i.
The advantage the new design should bring is a much more higher screen-to-body ratio by eliminating one of the bezels and keeping the other one quite thin. However, Doogee settles for reduced bezels at the top and bottom.
Specification details of the phone are unknown but from the pictures we see it does keep the 3.5mm audio jack. There is also no info as to when the Doogee Mix 3 will be launched as well as pricing details. Seeing as the Mix 2 was released last November, this may take a while before it hits the market.
