Xiaomi unveiled its Google-powered, Android One smartphone Mi A1 in the market last week. It appears that the firm is already preparing another one of its big smartphone launches, but this time they will be seen taking the wraps off two handsets. The company confirmed on its official Weibo account that it will be unveiling the Mi #Mix 2 alongside Mi #Note 3 on September 11.

Both of the successors fall in the high-end category, and Xiaomi has high hopes pinned on them. They also revealed that the Mi Mix 2 will feature a completely “bezel-less” display – much like Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8. Xiaomi president Lin Bin shared a teaser image of the handset, which revealed the final look of its front panel.

One could not get a proper view of its rear panel – thus, not much can be known about it.

The design of the phone

According to a report by BGR, Xiaomi has also indicated that Mi Note 3 will pack a slightly larger body in comparison to its Mi 6 smartphone. The teaser image, however, makes the handset look identical to Mi 6. Thus, it is assumed that there might be minor changes only. The smartphone will probably be built with a mixture of glass and metal – just like most of Xiaomi’s other handsets. Surprisingly, the fingerprint scanner won’t be located on the rear panel. According to a report by Android Headlines, it will probably come embedded in the physical home button on the front side. The handset will feature slightly curvy edges, along with a taller-than-usual aspect ratio of 18:9. The official Xiaomi branding is placed on the rear panel.

Here is the list of expected specs and features

On the camera front, the smartphone will feature a dual rear setup with two 12-megapixel sensors, accompanied by dual LED flash. The Xiaomi Mi Note 3 is further expected to pack a 5.7-inch QHD display. Being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the handset will contain Adreno 540 for graphics. The smartphone is definitely going to come running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, tagged along with MIUI 9 on top. Xiaomi is expected to roll out Android Oreo soon, but they haven’t made any such mentions yet.

As far as its Mi Mix 2 is concerned, the primary selling point of the smartphone is going to be its bezel-less design. The pricing details of both the smartphones haven’t been revealed yet. The international roll-out date is yet to be known, too. The phone could also be available in the US by mid-October.
