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.

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.
