Xiaomi’s President gives us the first look at Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

The president of Xiaomi posted an image of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 on Chinese social site Weibo. Since the device is confirmed to launch in October, we will be knowing more details about the Mi MIX 3 in the coming weeks. You guessed it right - behind the display! Rather, from examining the photograph above, it appears that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is essentially two pieces: the screen piece and the back piece. There's also some pretty sketchy action at the back of the device as it is suggested that, much like the OPPO Find X, multiple front-facing sensors will be revealed through a slide-out partition.

With this sort of design, the slide mechanism isn't motorized but manual. It also means the Mi MIX 3 will likely not be waterproof, though it may be splash-proof as long as it isn't opened. Sung doesn't actually include any specific information about the handset, other than the planned launch date, but all signs point to this being the Mi Mix 3, the company's upcoming flagship handset.

Though it arguably kicked off the current bezel-free smartphone craze with its original Mi Mix handset, Xiaomi seems to be taking a page out of Oppo's design playbook with a Find X-style sliding selfie camera on its newly announced Mi Mix 3 device.

We don't have long to wait before Xiaomi officially unveils the Mi Mix 3, so we'll know all before too long.

We expect the phone to come with top end specs such as an AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 845 processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.
