Xiaomi had a massive impact on the tech market last year when it introduced its Mi Mix. The major highlight of the device was its unmatched screen-to-body ratio. The firm is now preparing for the launch of its sequel – Mi Mix 2 on September 11, according to the announcement made by them on Weibo. There isn’t a lot to be officially known about the handset, except for a few leaks or so, every now and then. A newly leaked photo of the front and sides of Mi Mix 2, confirms significant high-end specs that fans can expect.

The phone spotted online

The image of the alleged handset showcases its screen, but without the front panel attached.

As pointed by Android Headlines, previous leaks also lacked the presence of a front panel. It is thus, safe to assume that the company is still working towards getting all the aspects together. Once it does, Xiaomi will be able to present it to the world on September 11. The picture goes on to reveal a metal frame surrounding Mi Mix 2.

This feature is complemented by a completely bezel-less casing on the sides and a top portion, while the bottom-end consists of very-thin bezels. It is difficult to pinpoint a single screen-size for the smartphone on the basis of just this image, but it looks close to being 6.2-inch, which most prevailing rumors have suggested since so long. Another feature that is set to fire up Mi Mix 2 is the speaker setup, placed beneath the smartphone. This is further accompanied by a USB Type-C port.

Smartphone will be a top-end

According to a report by TechMSD, Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 2 is expected to offer 8GB of RAM along with 256GB of inbuilt storage. Users may also get the option of availing a 126GB ROM variant with it. Xiaomi usually never provides the alternative of expanding the memory via its microSD card-slot option. On the basis of previous speculations, the handset will house a 4,400mAh battery and be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 826 processor.

It is expected to run on Android Oreo, but since Google only recently introduced the update, it seems highly unlikely that Xiaomi is able to get it on board in such a short notice. There is no word on its camera specifications as yet, but the firm might settle for the mainstream trend of integrating a dual rear camera setup in Mi Mix 2. Many have suggested that a 3D-face scanning option will come included in the device as well, along with being powered by MIUI 9.
