Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 to be Officially Unveiled on September 11th
Many remember the radical design changes that Sharp introduced with their Aquos devices, but they weren’t something that really made people pay attention to. This could have been from a lack of marketing, availability, the brand itself, or something else. However, Xiaomi was able to turn a lot of heads with their announcement the Mi Mix and its similar bezel design. We had heard rumblings of the company working on a successor and now they have confirmed when the Mi Mix 2 will be unveiled.
The Mi Mix really came out of left field as we just didn’t hear that many rumors about it before the device launched. It hasn’t even been a smartphone that has been widely available, since it was only manufactured in limited quantities. It’s unclear if this will be the case with the upcoming Mi Mix 2 though, so we’ll just have to wait and see how Xiaomi handles availability. Other than a teaser image and a launch date, Xiaomi hasn’t really said much about the device either.
There have been a few rumors surrounding the successor to the Mi Mix but the sources of them have been known to get things wrong from time to time (which is why we hadn’t written about them). Current rumors about the Mi Mix 2 say it will come equipped with a dual rear-camera setup and that Xiaomi has been working to reduce bezels even further. There’s even been some talk about Xiaomi working on a 3D facial recognition support for the device.
Reported hardware specs from alleged benchmark database entries say it will be powered by the Snapdragon 835 SoC, have 6GB of RAM, and ship with Android 7.1.1 Nougat. The company seems to be wanting to keep the same 6.4″ size display (if current reports are correct), but have its resolution bumped up to 2540 x 1440 pixels. Rumors say it will be made available in 128GB and 256GB internal storage options and it will have a 4,500mAh capacity battery.
Again, these are all rumored details of the device and we’ll have to wait until September 11th to see if they are correct.
