Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun had already confirmed in February that the company is working on the successor of the bezel less Mi MIX smartphone. Now, Jun has again taken Weibo to share that Mi MIX 2 is all set to be announced later this year.
He had stated that the Mi MIX 2 will be designed by Philippe Starck, who had designed the Mi MIX. As per earlier reports, the Mi MIX 2 will boast 93% screen to body ratio compared to 91.3% screen to body ration on the first generation Mi MIX. The phone will also sport a curved AMOLED display instead of LCD display on the Mi MIX. Moreover, the Mi MIX 2 is also tipped to feature an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor under the display.
In addition, the phone is expected to come with Cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic system instead of a standard earpiece. The Mi MIX 2 is rumored to be powered by Snapdragon 835 SoC and feature IP68 ratings for dust and water resistance. The first generation Mi MIX was launched in November last year in China so it is safe to say that the Mi MIX 2 could be introduced around same time this year.
