Chinless Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 rumored for September 15 announcement
For last fall’s refined Mi Mix 2, mass production was ramped up, but not enough for a wide global release. This spring’s Mi Mix 2S broke with tradition not just by seeing daylight six short months after its predecessor, also rolling out in a bunch of Western markets.
Even though it’s been a little over four months, a brand-new Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is reportedly in the pipeline, closing in on a formal September 15 announcement. You probably shouldn’t consider that date etched in stone just yet, but for what it’s worth, a teaser image appears to have been prematurely revealed.
If real, this strongly suggests the “chin” on Xiaomi’s next “full screen” flagship will be practically nonexistent. That lends further credence to a number of leaked recent pictures showing a handset with uniformly thin bezels around a large but compact display. There’s a good chance the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 will follow the retractable front camera approach of the Vivo Nex in order to get rid of the bottom border on the Mi Mix 2S.
There are no other features disclosed today, and no word on whether or not Xiaomi is planning a global expansion following the rumored domestic debut of the Mi Mix 3 on September 15. European availability is likely not out of the question, and sooner or later, the company has to go for US glory as well.
