Xiaomi MIX 3

Xiaomi seems to be following the steps of Oppo and Vivo in a smartphone with a pop-up camera. The Xiaomi Mix 3 is reported to come with a pop-up front camera as we’ve seen in the Vivo NEX.

The front panel looks pretty much same as that of Mi Mix 2, but the point to note here is that the bottom edge of Mi Mix 3 is thinner than its predecessor and the reason is, there is no camera at the bottom.

If you remember, the front camera in the Mi Mix 2 is located in the bottom corner of the phone (see below) and that’s why the bottom is thicker than the top border.

In fact, the camera sits under the display and comes out when the camera app is activated, much like the Oppo Find X and Vivo NEX. It will be Xiaomi’s top-end device with premium features. The handset might also come with infrared face recognition module.

We can clearly see in the image below that the company has skipped the notch and also the chin at the bottom. The Mi Mix 3 screen percentage will likely reach 95%.
