In August, Xiaomi confirmed the launch date to its much-awaited Mi Mix 2 smartphone. The firm took to Weibo (the Chinese version of Facebook) to announce that they will unveil the device on September 11—a day ahead of Apple iPhone 8 launch. The company is also expected to take the wraps off the Mi Note 3. A week ahead of its official introduction, Xiaomi took to its official website to post a short advertisement, showing off its smartphone. With this, the firm has further confirmed that their flagship is going to feature a "bezel-less" display.

Design of the phone

According to a report by Android Headlines, the video also teases that the handset is going pack slightly-curved edges.

The rear end of the handset was kept in the dark and not much could be guessed on the basis of it.

The company also mentioned on Weibo that the upcoming smartphone has been designed in a “very interesting way.” It hasn’t been clarified whether the smartphone will pack a physical home button or not. If it doesn’t, then there are chances that Xiaomi might integrate an under-the-display scanner.

Another alternative that the company might settle for is the implementation of facial recognition software. Xiaomi has followed Samsung and LG’s footsteps in adopting a bezel-less design. In fact, even Apple is speculated to carry out the same deed with its 10th-anniversary iPhone 8.

Here are the specs and the features

Whether its international variant will pack a different processor or not, is something that the company hasn’t spoken about yet.

On the display front, the smartphone is speculated to pack a 6.2-inch QHD+ display along with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

In the storage department, the handset will probably offer 6GB of RAM and three different storage options: 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

Xiaomi is speculated to pack Android Nougat in its Mi Mix 2 with MIUI 9 on top. The company hasn’t made any promises of bringing the latest Android Oreo software update as of yet. But fans are definitely hoping that something like this will happen.

The pricing bit about Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 has not been revealed either. The company is going to unveil its device a day earlier than Apple. They already have an upper hand in their home market, China, since Apple products are hardly even visible there. It’s the international market that Xiaomi needs to break through with.
