An alleged front panel of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has surfaced on Chinese Social network Weibo which reveal the bezels on all sides. Looking at the front panel image, we can see minor bezels at the bottom while there are negligible bezels on the other three sides. At the top, there is a slight cut which is left probably for some sensors and not the front camera.
We have already seen the official teaser of Mi Mix 3 which gave us a clear look at the device with minor bezels at the bottom and hence having a high screen to body ratio. The official teaser also indicated a sliding mechanism for full screen separating it from the back portion, which on sliding brings up the front camera that can be used for taking selfies & video calls.
We have also seen an alleged Mi Mix 3 hands-on video which shows the sliding mechanism in action confirming what we assumed from the official teaser images. An earlier leak suggested the official launch of the phone on September 15 that turned out to be not true and is now expected to officially launch in October 2018.
