The quest to rid the smartphone of bezels, as well as the notch, continues. And in its desire to deliver a truly immersive full-screen experience, Xiaomi has looked to the OPPO Find X for inspiration.
Xiaomi president Lin Bin today posted the first official image of the upcoming — and long-anticipated — Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 flagship smartphone. It’s clear where it takes its design cues from, with Xiaomi looking to keep the bezels on the next Mi MIX extremely thin by moving the front-facing camera, sensors, and earpiece speaker behind the screen of the phone, as part of a hidden, movable assembly that slides out when needed.
Yes, exactly like the one found in the OPPO Find X, not the Vivo NEX as earlier reported.
And though the Chinese OEM has not divulged official details about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 yet, we can expect it to include components for 3D facial recognition, like the ones on the Mi 8, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor mated to at least 6GB of RAM. The screen will reportedly max out at 2K resolution — a first for any Xiaomi phone — while the back-facing cameras may come with two 12-megapixel sensors.
According to Xiaomi’s top executive, the Mi MIX 3 will launch in October with a release date set within the same month.
