Xiaomi’s upcoming bezel-less smartphone is up on the web in many leaks already. The anticipated Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 was rumored to launch last month on September 15, although it turned out to be just a rumor.

Now there is one more leak on internet claiming that Xiaomi will launch the Mi MIX 3 on October 15 in China. The alleged launch date teaser shared by AndroidPure notes Mi MIX launch date as October 15 with a big ‘3’ moniker.

We have seen numerous leaks that talk about how the front camera on the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 will slide out similar to the Oppo Find X. There was a recent GIF leak showcasing the camera functionality as well. The image had edges blurred in order to hide the anticipated button placement on the smartphone.

Rumors have suggested that Mi MIX 3 will come with a dedicated Xiao AI button placed on right side of the phone, which is expected to work quite similar to Samsung’s Bixby button. The Philippe Starck-designed Mi MIX 3 could be the most premium device yet from Xiaomi.
