The Xiaomi Mi Mix was one of the most interesting smartphones released last year thanks to its bezel-less display; it was really only a matter of time before its successor is announced. Well, that’s precisely what the CEO of Xiaomi – Lei Jun – has confirmed.
Lei Jun first revealed this bit of news on his Weibo account, where he mentioned that the Mi Mix’s successor will be designed by Philippe Starck, much like the original device.
Unfortunately, Lei Jun did not elaborate much on what we can expect from the Mi Mix’s sequel. However, it’s likely that the signature bezel-less display of the Mi Mix will be retained on its successor; it should be a high-end device too, considering how well-equipped the Mi Mix was.
While the Mi Mix is a very interesting device, its ceramic construction and limited availability were some of its biggest weaknesses. While the ceramic body both looks and feels great, it makes the phone very slippery. Other than that, the bezel-less nature of the device makes it particularly prone to damage when dropped too.
Hopefully, the next iteration of the Xiaomi Mi Mix will solve these issues, especially when it comes to availability. Who knows: it’s possible the next Mi Mix will be an international device when it’s released.
