Just as Xiaomi had launched the Mi MIX 2 in September 2017, Mi fans are now speculating that the Mi MIX 3 flagship phone may get unveiled in the same month this year. The Mi MIX 2S that was unveiled earlier this year includes upgraded specs but sports the same design as the Mi MIX 2. Hence, the Mi MIX 3 arriving later this year is expected to feature a better design along with improved specs. All the Mi MIX smartphones that have released so far have slightly thick chin compared to the other bezels since they feature front-facing camera. Rumors are rife that the Mi MIX 3 will be featuring a slimmer chin as it will be arriving with a pop-up selfie camera like the Vivo NEX. Some users in China who have installed MIUI 10 on their devices have come across an image of a Xiaomi smartphone inside the ROM. The handset can be seen with an exclusive AI button on its left side. Since the Chinese manufacturer has never used the design on its phone before, it is now being speculated that the Mi MIX 3 may arrive with the same appearance.

Apart from the dedicated AI button, the above image shows that the handset features a very reduce chin. It appears that Xiaomi has deleted the image as is it is no longer present inside MIUI 10. Since the image is missing, Mi fans have become all the more curious that the image have really leaked the design of the upcoming Mi MIX 3.

As mentioned above, the Mi MIX 3 could be equipped with a pop-up front-facing camera. Rumors have it that the pop-up module will also feature an LED flash for the selfie snapper. In order to offer higher screen by cutting down on the space consumed by sensors, Xiaomi may incorporate COF packaging technology by Samsung. It will allow the company to effectively reduce the size of chin to nearly 3mm to deliver higher screen-to-body ratio. The handset is also expected to be equipped with in-display fingerprint scanner.
