Alleged Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 teaser hints at pop-out camera, September release
Although the poster in question is pretty simple, it does contain the silhouette of a smartphone that clearly sports a pop-out module up top, suggesting Xiaomi will opt to include a moving part on its next Mi Mix device in a bid to reduce the overall size of the bezels. Furthermore, accompanying the phrase “The light of Mi” is what looks set to be the announcement date, which is listed as September this year. No specific date within the month is mentioned, although it shouldn’t be too long before the company announces one. In any case, though, Xiaomi looks set to face tough competition from a number of brands during that time period such as Apple with its new iPhone lineup, LG with its V40 flagship and potentially Sony with its updated Xperia XZ3.
As with most of its upcoming competition, the Mi Mix 3 is expected to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside and possibly 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Furthermore, a dual-camera setup is expected to make a return on the rear while, on the software side of things, Android 9.0 P along with Xiaomi’s MIUI 10 overlay seems to be the most likely candidate when the release date is taken into account. Lastly, on an added note, the rear fingerprint scanner featured on the Mi Mix 2S may be removed in favor of a new in-display one.
