Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and its sliding screen are coming on October 25
In 2016, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi launched the first member of its Mi Mix lineup - a device that arguably spurred the all-screen design craze that is so common with most contemporary smartphones. Fast forward to this year and it appears that Xiaomi is preparing to introduce another interesting take on the bezel-less approach.

The company has been hinting about an October launch for the new Mi Mix 3 and we're happy to say that we finally have a date for the occasion. The announcement event for the handset will be held on October 25 in Beijing, according to an official post on Weibo. The sliding display mechanism of the Mi Mix 3 was mentioned yet again, and if you're wondering how that works, feel free to check out the video below.

We haven't heard that many rumors about the specs of the Mi Mix 3, but it's safe to assume that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will be included alongside the choice of either 6GB or 8GB of RAM. When it comes to internal storage, previous base models have shipped with 64GB. With the Mi Mix 3, though, the low-cost brand is expected to up this to 128GB. Similarly, the top-of-the-line variant should ship with 512GB, although a 256GB variant is to be expected also. 

In regards to the other features, an in-display fingerprint scanner has been rumored. This will presumably accompany a single front-facing camera and a vertical dual setup on the rear. Completing the setup will presumably be a battery of around 3,500mAh and Android 9 Pie straight out of the box along with the MIUI 10 skin on top.

Oh lord. You "pure android" guys and your love for featureless Android One. Meanwhile, if this has anything less than a 4,000mah battery and the earpiece is in the slider, I'm not buying and will get the Nex S instead. I love my Mix2 and miui but will change if I have to.
