The upcoming release of Apple's iPhone 8 might be overshadowed by Xiaomi's bezel-less Mi Mix phone. According to the latest report by TechCrunch, Xiaomi, which released their first-ever bezel-less phone in October, is hoping to introduce its latest innovation two days prior to the unveiling of the iPhone 8. The Xiaomi device was created in collaboration with designer Phillippe Starck. The newfangled look has been tagged as the future of phone designs.

The device with the 6.4-inch screen was limited and only a few customers were able to acquire the units. Now, it is apparent that the brand will capitalize on the "teaser" and are likely to support the all new Mi Mix this September.

The date of unveiling could make or break the success of Xiaomi's launch, as the iPhone 8 is expected to be launched two days later.

Leaked specs

Interestingly, Gizbot recently shared details of the leaked Mi Mix phone from Xiaomi and although it wasn't the actual phone, many believe that the concept was pretty much similar. The prototype showed a massive screen. As the device is nearly bezel-less, you can hardly leave a fingerprint on its bezels. Moreover, the conventional home button and fingerprint scanner were not visible on the front portion of the phone. The phone's usual connectivity ports, as well as the speakers, are strategically placed.

For those who are interested in Xiaomi's new device, the company is holding its media event on September 11, 2017, at the University of Technology Gymnasium in Beijing. Additionally, rumors suggest that the all new Mi Mix 2 will run on the Android 8.0 Oreo.

Xiaomi is working with Google

Meanwhile, Apple will hold its media day on September 12, 2017, and is expected to unveil the new iPhone 8, Apple TV, and the Apple Watch. Meanwhile, besides the Xiaomi Mi5X or the Mi6, the company will also launch another new dual-camera smartphone. Rumour has it that Xiaomi has been secretly working with Google and might launch an Android One series mobile with Xiaomi Mi 5X specifications and call it the "Mi A1."
