The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 surfaces in the flesh ahead of its official reveal
The eagerly anticipated Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 has leaked out once again, although this time it appears to be a shot of the device live and in the flesh. The image is consistent with previous leaks of the device that show it to have an almost entirely bezel-less front screen. Said to be 6.2-inches and featuring a QHD resolution, the photo also gives us a good look at Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
Qualcomm has already confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be fitted with a high-end Snapdragon 835 SoC, while it will come in both 6 GB RAM and 8 GB RAM variants. The rumor mill also suggests that there will be two storage options as well, with 128 GB and 256 GB models expected. The battery is thought to pack 4,500 mAh, which is generous when compared with other devices featuring a similarly large display. In addition to a finger-print sensor, Xiaomi has reportedly also baked in 3D facial recognition. Those hoping for a ceramic finish as incorporated in the original Mi MIX will, however, have to settle for an aluminum body this time around.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 will be officially launched on September 11. The original set the current trend for bezel-less designs, so it will be interesting to see if the Mi MIX 2 brings any other trend-setting features to the table at its reveal.
