Xiaomi has just officially announced that they will be launching their next generation Mi Mix phablet on September 11 via a teaser image posted on Weibo. It’s likely that the bezels will be even thinner this time around, sporting a nearly 100% screen-to-body ratio.
In October last year, Xiaomi launched the Mi Mix in China, a smartphone with an edgeless display having massive 91.3% screen to body ratio. The new image posted on Weibo is reminiscent of the Galaxy S8 infinity display advertisement, showing a night sky full of stars with the outline of a smartphone indicating an edgeless display.
Nothing else about the phone is officially confirmed at the moment, although rumors/leaks so far indicate the device may come with a dual rear-camera setup. An alleged Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 spotted on Geekbench suggests that the Mi Mix 2 will be powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 MSM 8998 processor along with 6 GB of RAM, running on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat).
Other rumors have indicated 8 GB of RAM along with 128 GB / 256 GB storage options and a 5 MP front shooter positioned at the bottom bezel of the smartphone. Based on what we’ve seen so far, the smartphone may feature a 6.4-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 2540 x 1440 pixels, but its possible that Xiaomi may stick to the 2040 x 1080 resolution found on the original Mi MIX.
When it comes to the main camera, rumors are murky. Some indications suggest a 12 MP shooter on the back, while others hint toward a 19 MP sensor.
How much of this is true will be revealed when the Mi Mix 2 officially launches on September 11. We will keep our eyes open for rumors until then.
Just to refresh your memory, the original Mi Mix sports a 6.4-inch edgeless display with a massive 91.3% screen to body ratio and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB/6GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage.
The Mi Mix is fueled by a 4400 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0. The main rear camera is a 16 megapixel lens with Phase Detection Auto Focus and Dual LED Flash.
