Xiaomi Mi Mix

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is expected to ship without physical keys and will have a bezel-less display similar to that of the original Mi Mix. Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun revealed that the Mi Mix 2 will be a bezel-less smartphone. He also revealed that Philippe Starck will be given the task to design the Mi Mix 2 smartphone. Xiaomi will launch the flagship Mi Mix 2 only by the beginning of Q4 2017.

Commenting on the development, Jun said that Starck did a great job with the Mi Mix and hence he will be entrusted with the job to design the second edition as well. Jun also added that he recently met Starck to discuss the design roadmap for the upcoming smartphone.

The highlight of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will be the elimination of a physical home button. Moreover, the company is also gearing up to increase the screen-to-body ratio of the smartphone up to 93 percent.

On the specifications front, the Xiaomi Mi Mix features a 6.4-inch display, Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB/128GB storage, 6GB RAM/256GB storage, 16MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing snapper powered by a 4400mAh fast charging battery. The handset is loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of MIUI 8 platform.

Xiaomi will ship the rumored Mi Mix 2 with Android Nougat. The Chinese smartphone maker has already invited applications from beta testers to test drive the upcoming Android Nougat update.

That said, there will be changes to the processor and internals. However, we are not expecting any changes to the display panel. You can expect RAM up to 8GB and internal storage up to 512GB. On the Optics front, you can expect a bump on the front camera sensor with the likely addition of 8MP sensor.
