Xiaomi’s latest smartphone knows no borders.
After weeks of teases, Xiaomi has made the Mi Mix 2 official. Featuring a similar design to its predecessor, the Mi Mix 2 will have a 5.99-inch, 2160 x 1080 pixel screen that covers nearly the entire façade of the smartphone – that’s basically a 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio.
On the outside the Mi Mix 2 features curved sides along with a ceramic back. There is also an ultrasound proximity sensor located below the display along with a camera sensor. There’s also an earpiece located above the display, but it’s so small you’d hardly notice it is there.
Xiaomi has also placed the antenna bands on the top and bottom of the smartphone and is joining new flagships in removing the 3.5 mm audio jack. The company also included support for various LTE bands, making the Mi Mix 2 compatible with nearly every carrier in the world.
Specifications are also top-of-the-line, which includes a Snapdragon 835 CPU along with 6 GB of RAM with storage options varying from 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. There is also a 12-megapixel camera at the back along with a 5-megapixel front camera. Battery capacity is at 3400 mAh, which supports Quick Charge 3.0. The Mi Mix 2 will run MIUI 9 which is based on Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
No word yet on local availability as the device will initially be available in China, but pricing will start at $505. A special edition variant of the Mi Mix 2 with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage will retail for $721.
