Xiaomi Announces Mi MIX 2 With 5.99" 18:9 Full Screen Display, Snapdragon 835 And 8GB RAM

 

Last year in October, Xiaomi released their Mi Mix which we all thought was nothing more than a concept with its bezel-less display, giant curved-edge 17:9 screen, and ceramic. Even Xiaomi said that it is an concept phone with a price which is around $516 and could be bought by anyone.





But today, the company goes even further than its predecessor with the Mi Mix 2. Representing a 5.99" inch screen crammed into a body that's 11.9% smaller. The chin of the phone is reduced of the original Mi Mix, and the display is now the same 18:9 aspect ratio we've seen employed by Samsung in its 2017 flagships. The piezoelectric earpiece is replaced by a more traditional speaker, which now takes up a little bit more space at the top of the screen. The front camera remains below the screen, aided by an ultrasonic proximity sensor.














It is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 835 Mobile platform with 6GB of RAM and there is also a Special Edition with 8GB of RAM. It has a 12-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX386 sensor and a 5-megapixel camera on the front on the right bottom that also supports face recognition.

It has a ceramic body and uses Cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic system instead of a standard earpiece, allowing you to listen to calls without the earpiece, similar to the predecessor. It also has sound guided speaker that has 50mW high power speaker with sound guided tube for an enhanced audio experience. It has support for 6 modes and 43 bands. As we already know, world renowned designer Philippe Starck is the designer of the phone.
