Xiaomi Mi Mix 2

After recent leaks and reports, Xiaomi has officially unveiled the sequel of its first concept phone. In pursuit of making the smartphones completely off-bezels, Chinese smartphone maker took the lead to introduce Mi Mix last year.

Now after Samsung and LG with their own slim-bezel designs, Apple and Huawei is all set to announce their bezel-free counterparts. Xiaomi, however, has once again jumped to the next version of its concept phone – Mi Mix 2.

Major Features

The successor Mi Mix 2 comes with a smaller screen size as 5.99″ than of the original Mi Mix with 6.44-inch. Additionally, instead of the 17:9 aspect ratio, the Mix 2 features more taller resolution as 18:9. However the phone still remains at FullHD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. The change comes with further reduced bottom bezel by 12% and curved glass on the front.

The base model “Black Ceramic Edition” of Mi Mix 2 sports 6GB of RAM and comes in variants of 64GB, 128GB or 256GB internal storage. This model has a back ceramic panel with aluminium frame. The company also announced a special edition of the phone in “All Ceramic Edition” which is a full ceramic unibody, boasts 8GB of RAM with only a variant of 128GB internal storage.

Powered by Snapdragon 835 chipset, currently-top from Qualcomm, the Mix 2 will be clocked at up to 2.45GHz, along side the Adreno 540 graphics processor. Two models vary a little in size and weight where the base model weighs 185 grams and packs into 151.8 x 75.5 mm profile, while the other model is 2 grams heavier with 187 grams but has a little smaller (around 1 mm both sides) outfit – 150.5 x 74.6 mm.

Software wise, the Mi Mix 2 will run Android 7 Nougat with MIUI 9.

Camera

On the back, Mi Mix 2 features a 12-megapixel primary camera module which has a Sony IMX386 image sensor with pixel size of 1.25µm inside, while there’s a 5-element lens with f/2.0 aperture and 4-axis OIS (optical image stabilization). The main camera features some kind of dark light enhancement technology as well to improve low-light shots. There’s a 5-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

Battery:

Xiaomi has also reduced the battery to 3400mAh battery for the Mix 2, when compared to the original. But it’s a huge drop of 1000mAh. While the diagonal screen size of the successor is also reduced by a half-inch, hopefully the company reduced the battery size accordingly. Mix 2 supports Quick Charge 3.0 with 9V/2A charger and features USB Type-C connectivity and double sided charging interface.

Price and Availability

Standard Black Ceramic edition with 6GB RAM will only be available in black color while the special All Ceramic edition with 8GB RAM will be available in two – black and haoyue white. Mi Mix 2 will first be available in home – China, while Xiaomi has plans to launch the phone in all the markets where it has its footprints.
