The Xiaomi Mi Mix caused a sensation at the turn of the year 2016/2017 and caused the implementation of an almost borderless display high waves. A trend that accompanies the year 2017 and was also picked up by, for example, Samsung at the new Galaxy Note 8. Even with the new iPhone 8, many rumors indicate that it is equipped with a borderless display. Before Apple presents it on the 12.9, Xiaomi has not let itself take their new flagship one day before.

This will probably be no coincidence, but a clever advertising campaign to turn the company’s attention with the apple. But what is Mi Mix 2 known so far? Meanwhile, a lot of information about the smartphone has been released. The recently released teaser only indicates that it will overshadow its predecessor in design and mix 2 with even thinner edges.
And it does so: the 5.99 inch “full screen” display has an aspect ratio of 18: 9 (or 2: 1) and a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. In the Special Edition, Xiaomi even processes a ceramic case. The Mi Mix 2 comes in a matte black or white color. Both are refined with golden elements. In addition, the housing frame is made of aluminum. A real edge is really only on the bottom of the device, in which the front camera is located. This chin, ie the lower edge, is once again 12% thinner than the predecessor. The fingerprint sensor is located on the back, a USB Type-C connector on the bottom. There is no 3.5 mm jack connection.
The previous assumptions have proved true: inside, a Snapdragon 835 processor is sleeping. With 6 GB of RAM , the memory is very generous. The special edition is even 8 GB of memory to be used and the internal memory amounts to 128 GB. In the camera, Xiaomi puts on the main camera of the Xiaomi Mi 6, but renounced the implementation of a second lens. The Sony IMX386 sensor will be used for this purpose. In addition, the camera operates with a 4-axis image stabilization. The loudspeaker membrane of the phone sits under the display, creating a resonance with the metal frame and the sound is thus almost produced by the display.
The pictures also show that the Xiaomi own MIUI 9 operating system is used. And yes, the Mi Mix 2 is equipped with LTE Band 20. Worldwide, 43 tapes are supported, which allows good reception even in remote areas. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is available in 64 GB, 126 GB and 256 GB memory sizes. The cheap model is available for about 420 euros and thus hardly more expensive than the predecessor currently. However, these will be somewhat more expensive for the European market. The smartphone will be sold in China from 15.9.2017. As soon as orders are possible via the shops, we will inform you.
The Mi Mix 2 looks very, very noble. Personally, I am surprised that the manufacturer does not use a second Kameralinse. The now known Snapdragon 835 is again used, I find something unfortunate, because in the run-up rumors around a Snapdragon 836 in the room stood. The design is definitely the trump of the smartphone and is really impressive.
