Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is rumored to go official in September. To be more precise, a recent leak had claimed that the phone may get announced on Sept. 15. The Mi MIX series phones that have launched so far have featured similar design. However, rumors surrounding the Mi MIX 3 claim that it may arrive with an enhanced design. Fresh photos of the alleged Mi MIX 3 smartphone have surfaced on Weibo today. The new images also suggest that the Mi MIX 3 will be sporting a better design and higher screen space than its predecessor models.
The above shown images of the back panel of the alleged Mi MIX 3 indicate that it could be equipped with glass or ceramic rear. Hence, the handset is pegged to carry support for wireless charging.
The dual camera module is placed in the upper half of the rear shell and it does not feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. This seems to be a clear proof that the Mi MIX 3 will be equipped with an under-display fingerprint reader.
The other photo that is shown below reveals that its bottom edge is equipped with features like an external speaker grille, a USB-C port and a microphone. The bottom bezel of the alleged Mi MIX 3 appears thinner than that of the predecessor Mi MIX series phones. This means that the bottom bezel will not be housing the selfie camera. It indicates that it could be equipped with a pop-up selfie camera.
Rumors have it that the pop-up selfie camera module may also feature an LED flash. The reduction of the bottom bezel indicates that the Mi MIX 3 may offer higher screen-to-body ratio than Mi MIX 2S. The Mi MIX 3 is unlikely to feature 3.5mm audio jack like the Mi MIX 2S.
Last year, Xiaomi had confirmed the launch date of the Mi MIX 2 phone on Aug. 30 and it was made official on Sept. 11. It had arrived a day before Apple had announced the iPhone X. If the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 goes official by mid-September, there is a possibility that the company may confirm on its launch date by the end of this month. A recent leak had revealed that the Mi MIX 3 could be coming with S-AMOLED screen with 2K resolution, Snapdragon 845, 20-megapixel selfie camera, in-display fingerprint scanner and Qi wireless charging. The leak had also revealed that it could be priced at ~$569.
