Xiaomi, the smartphone maker that started the recent trend towards bezel-less devices, looks to be the first to get rid of bezels all-together if a new leak is accurate. The new Mix 2s has only the smallest of notches to incorporate a front-facing camera.

A fresh leak of the Xiaomi Mix 2s reveals a stunning design that almost eliminates front bezels on the device. The device is a further evolution of the Mix 2, which was only launched as recently as October. That design took its cue from the original Phillipe Starck-designed Xiaomi Mix, which was the first to start the recent trend towards all-screen smartphones.

As can be seen from the pictures, the only evidence of a front-facing bezel is tucked away to the top right-hand side of the device where the company has found a tiny notch for its front-facing camera. For all intents and purpose, it could be argued that the Chinese maker is the first to eliminate front-facing bezels. The rest of the design is wraps a four-sided ceramic body around its 5.99-inch display.

The Xiaomi Mix 2s is also something of a spec beast. It will be among the first to sport a Snapdragon 845 and will be mated to 8 GB LPDDR4X RAM while storage will be a decent 256 GB of high-speed UFS. It will have a dual 12MP camera on the rear with optical zoom and integrate 4G global LTE bands. In opting to forgo 3D facial scanning, it will integrate an under-display fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication.

The Mix 2s is expected to officially see the light of day at MWC starting February 26.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
