As per the latest information Mi Mix 3 is expected to arrive with a pop-up camera for selfies. It should be noted that this camera is identical to the Vivo NEX that is hidden in the top panel. When the camera is accessed through the application, it appears from the frame to take the picture. An image that reveals this type of design appeared on the Weibo and we can confirm that the device comes with a front pop-up camera.
The Mi Mix that was originally released in 2016 featured the world with a frame-less design. It has a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display. At the time it offered 84% screen-to-body ratio. After the launch of Mi Mix other smartphone manufacturers have chosen to follow the same trend and launch smartphones with an identical design and no frame.
The Mi MIX 2 that was announced last year came with 5.99 inches display. Its screen-to-body ratio is 80.8%. The Mi MIX 2S was officially launched earlier this year also has a 5.99-inch screen and a screen-to-body ratio of 82%. It should be noted that other manufacturers, such as OPPO Find X and Vivo NEX offer between 86% and 87% per screen-to-body ratio. With the launch of Mi MIX, Xiaomi popularized the frame-less design. And, now with the Mi Mix 3, it can offer a screen-to-body ratio even higher than the predecessor models. The image leak by Slashleaks show volume and power keys as in previous Mi mix devices. No signature of fingerprint sensor is there. As rumored, it must be in-display or rear-mounted.
In 2015 Xiaomi registered a patent for a smartphone with a pop-up camera and an LED flash. As such, in addition to the camera sensor we are likely to find a flash as well. However, a poster reveals that the Xiaomi Mi Max 3 smartphone is expected to arrive in September.
