Qualcomm has confirmed that the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 will be powered by its latest chipset, the Snapdragon 835. It also shows the full front facade of the phone, and the bezel looks to be very minimal indeed.
The limited run Xiaomi Mi Mix (which we have reviewed here) proved that users want a phone that offers a high screen-to-body ratio with high-end performance chipset. Owing to this, Xiaomi CEO, Lei Jun, hinted that there will be more units of the Mi Mix 2 available during launch. Which hopefully means that the phone will be available in more places than just China.
On the unique screen ratio, Jun shared that Xiaomi was in discussion with Google to support the 17:9 screen ratio in Android builds for over six months. This paved way for larger screen ratio to be officially supported by Google in the long run, he added on.
We will be getting the aforementioned Snapdragon 835, paired with possibly 6GB of RAM, a 6.2-inch AMOLED display, 19MP camera at the rear, Corning Gorilla glass in lieu (or perhaps supplementing) ceramic, as well as a large 4500mAh battery.
The new Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 is set to be launched on 11 September 2017, a day before the launch of the new Apple iPhone. Will this take the spotlight? We shall see by then.
