The official Mi MIX 3 render has revealed that it will be arriving with an improved design. The image of the Mi MIX 3 front panel that has appeared today shows that its top and side bezels are quite thin. This indicates that the Mi MIX 3 will be ofering higher screen-to-body ratio than its predecessor model.
The official image of the Mi MIX 3 had revealed that it does not feature a front-facing camera on its bottom bezel. The image of the Mi MIX 3’s front panel show that it has a slimmer bottom bezel compared to the Mi MIX 2S mainly since the selfie camera is no longer present on it.

The video revealed that front panel of the phone features a subtle cutout on the top bezel. However, the leaked image showing the front panel of Mi MIX 3 seems has an uneven cutout.
