Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Latest Leak Shows Rear Panel Design And Vertical Dual-Camera Setup
Xiaomi's Mi Mix lineup, the one that started the bezel-less craze, is about to get a new member - Mi Mix 3. A photo of the rear panel appeared, suggesting the new phablet might have a dual vertical camera setup on the back.
The leaked panel looks a lot like the back of the iPhone X but with a fingerprint scanner and a "Mi Mix designed by Xiaomi" slogan on it, as reported by GSM Arena. Since it's early days for a smartphone expected to launch in the latter half of 2018, very little is known about Xiaomi's next bezel-less Mi Mix as of now.
The rear panel of the Mi Mix 3 also features a fingerprint scanner embedded in the middle, which was the case with the Mi Mix 2. Another notable change in the smartphones' design is the rounded corners of the device, unlike the more rectangular shape used previously, as reported by Indian Express. The Mi Mix 3 will be the first smartphone under the Xiaomi's Mi Mix series to feature a dual-camera setup.
In any case, Xiaomi will probably launch the Mi Mix 3 in either September or October of next year. The company launched the Mi Mix 2 in September this year, alongside the Mi Note 3. Nevertheless, the Mi Mix 3 should feature a bezel-less design, like its predecessor. And on the specifications front, it might come with a Snapdragon 845 processor, either 6GB or 8GB RAM, 128GB storage, and a 3600mAh battery.
This is quite an early leak and this might be just one of series of prototypes Xiaomi is working on for the next Mi Mix flagship. The manufacturer has introduced two completely different designs of vertical camera setup: two lenses under the same piece of glass in Mi 5s Plus and two lenses in separate holes in for the Mi 6.
