The original Mi MIX arrived last November and its successor will be unveiled in less than two weeks, confirms Xiaomi. After multiple rumors and a few official teasers, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 phablet finally has an official launch date: September 11.

Xiaomi's recent blog post about the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 only recalls the details that made its predecessor such a popular device, mentioning that the Mi MIX "won numerous awards for innovative design" and was drawn by the well-known French designer Philippe Starck. The "revolutionary 2.0 bezel-less display" part does not say much for now, unfortunately.

The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 already visited Geekbench, so it will not be surprising to see it using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and 6 GB memory as revealed by the benchmark database. The Geekbench entry also uncovered the operating system on board as Android 7.1.1 Nougat. We should also expect it to come with MIUI 9 on top, of course. 

Although the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821-powered Mi MIX phablet is widely known for its massive 6.4-inch bezel-less display, it also features a piezoelectric acoustic system that uses the device's body to transmit sound instead of a classic speaker design. The Mi MIX 2 should inherit this innovative feature as well, but is expected to drop the fully ceramic body for a more conventional metal build.

Xiaomi pushed the bezel-less design into the market and helped it become (nearly) the norm. Its successor might do the same for something new - maybe a front camera placed somehow behind the display since the Mi MIX already accommodated the proximity sensor there.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
