Xiaomi today at an event in China officially unveil the next-gen bezel-busting smartphone, dubbed as Mi Mix 2. The bezel-less look is not as exciting as it was last year, now every manufacturer has started jumping on the trend.
As you can see in the depicted pictures, the Mi Mix 2 does take several deviations as compared to its predecessor. This one is smaller in size, flaunts a 6-inch display (down from 6.4-inches), but this one has an aspect ratio of 18:9.
The positioning of the front camera sensor is one again at the bottom bezel which is now even slimmer. The rear side is once again accented with ceramic, and the company claims that they have made the material denser and stronger. And there’s also a camera bump now, which wasn’t earlier.
The rear camera is the 12-megapixel one, we were expecting a dual camera setup here but the company has decided to keep it single.
Under the hood, there resides the top-of-the-line SoC from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 835 which is coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB 0r 256GB storage options to choose from.
There’s also a Special Edition of the Mi Mix 2, which will entirely be made up of ceramic- a single piece of ceramic. Memory section for this variant will include 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 comes with MIUI 9 based on Android 7 Nougat.
Battery capacity for both the variants is 3,400mAh, which is a downgrade from last year’s 4,400mAh. One more interesting thing to note here is that the Mi Mix 2 will support an expanded set of 43 wireless bands.
