Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 is all set to go official tomorrow. Since the day Xiaomi announced the Oct. 25 launch date for the smartphone, it has been consistently teasing on its features. Today, the Chinese manufacturer has released the first commercial of the smartphone which reveals something important about the smartphone.

A leaked photo of the Mi MIX 3 that had appeared in the previous week had revealed that it features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The authenticity of the image was doubted, but the rumor mill had also claimed that the image has actually shared and quickly removed by none other than Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun.

Coming back to the Mi MIX 3’s first commercial video, it clearly reveals the phone does not feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. So, the phone is very likely to feature the pressure-sensitive fingerprint scanner that is available on the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro smartphone which was announced in September.
