Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
Last year in September, Xiaomi launched its all-screen phone – Mi Mix 2 – which came with almost no bezels and a selfie camera at the bottom chin of the phone’s front.
After almost a year has passed, and rumours surrounding a successor have started to come in. The new Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 might be coming soon to take on to the likes of Vivo and Oppo with its purported features.
According to the recent leaks, the Mi Mix 3 will have a selfie camera mechanism similar to that of Vivo Nex. That said, the camera will slide out of the upper edge of the Mi Mix 3.
This new camera mechanism may put Xiaomi in same category innovativeness as Oppo and Vivo. Although, the Oppo Find X uses a different approach for its stealth mechanism, it employs a new gimmicky camera trick nonetheless.
Some leaks suggest that the Mi Mix 3 will come with a massive 6.99-inch display. Apart from that, the phone will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 CPU on-board along with 8GB RAM and 256GB inbuilt storage option.

Further, the mobile will take photos from a dual 12MP + 12MP camera module while featuring a 20-megapixel pop-out selfie camera.
