Xiaomi is soon expected to launch the successor to the Mi MIX 2S in China, expected to be marketed as the Mi MIX 3. While some rumors had claimed the device could be launched as the Mi LEX instead, more recent leaks suggest the Mi LEX is a different device. Ahead of its launch in China, the Mi MIX 3 has shown up on the 3C certification website in China.
Mi MIX 3 Receives 3C Certification in China
The 3C certification agency in China has certified three variants of the Mi MIX 3 – M1810E5A, M1810E5E, and M1810E5T. Another new device bearing the model number M1810E5BC has also been certified by 3C, although it does not appear to be a variant of the Mi MIX 3. Unlike TENAA, 3C certifications do not include any vital information regarding the certified devices. In the MI MIX 3’s case, the listing only tells us that the smartphone will be bundled with a 12V 1.5A power adapter in the box. Since the smartphone has now been certified by 3C, we expect it to make an appearance on the TENAA website very soon. Once that happens, we will be able to find out a lot more about the upcoming Xiaomi flagship smartphone.
Mi MIX 3 Rumored Specifications
Rumors suggest the Mi MIX 3 will sport an all-screen design with extremely narrow bezels on all sides. Similar to the OPPO Find X, the Mi MIX 3 is expected to have a sliding portion at the top, eliminating the need for a notch. However, unlike the Find X, the Mi MIX 3 slider will not be motorized. Instead, users will have to manually operate the slider to access the camera. Under the hood, Mi MIX 3 will run on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset clocked at 2.8 GHz with an Adreno 630 GPU, similar to other Xiaomi flagship smartphones released this year. In the memory department, Mi MIX 3 is expected to be available in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. Some of the other rumored features of the upcoming Xiaomi flagship smartphone include an in-display fingerprint sensor, wireless charging support, and a dual-camera setup at the rear with a 20MP primary sensor.
