Xiaomi has confirmed it will hold the launch event for its Mi Mix 3 in Beijing, China, on Thursday 25 October 2018.

The Mi Mix 3 is an update to the Mi Mix 2S with up to 10GB of RAM and 5G support. Other rumours include a pop-up selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The original Mi Mix was the phone that kickstarted the bezel-less smartphone trend, revolutionary in its elimination of the top, right and left bezels, leaving only a chin at the bottom that included the oddly positioned selfie camera. Since then it has become a staple design trend in the flagship market.

The Mi Mix 3 could be the one to see the chin disappear too, as is outlined by the image on the event invitation at the top of this page.

Though the Mi Mix line is still not officially available in the UK, it is possible to purchase through channels such as GearBest (with some caveats). In comparison to similarly specced models available through UK mobile operators it offers phenomenal value, with flagship-level hardware including generous storage, RAM and the class-leading Snapdragon 845.

We will update this article nearer the time with full details on how you can watch the Mi Mix 3 live stream and get real-time updates on Xiaomi's announcements.
